Gold at 17U Girls NCL Eastern Nationals
Day 1 of the tournament began with Glen looking more excited than the girls.  If our “Kracktans” girls were too nervous to look excited, they soon changed that with a 25 to 6 victory over Hamilton.  They followed that up with an 18 to 3 victory over Shadow during the late night game.

The victories set up a playoff-round matchup against CAMO on day 2.  CAMO wasn’t dispatched so easily.  In fact, a 9 to 9 tie in regulation time led the two teams to finish the match with a shoot-out, which resulted in a 13 to 12 victory for us.  As close as it gets!

Of course the Mavericks awaited our “Kracktans” in the final on day 3 and the game didn’t disappoint.  The battle began with as much grabbing and kicking as a nursery of raccoons around a compost bin.  It was close until later in the game when our girls pulled away, finishing with a 13 to 7 victory.  

The epic finish however, went to coach Owen who - ruining his cell phone in the process - was pushed into the pool in celebration.  He was quickly followed by coach Glen, who spritely dove in without a ripple. 

Congratulations U17 Girls!  Next stop, the Nationals in Calgary at the end of May!  Go “Kracktans!”
