Bantam BB's Oakville Tournament
Submitted By LeAnn Donnelly on Monday, September 24, 2018
Your Bantam BB team headed to Oakville the weekend of September 14th to the 16th to compete in their first tournament of the season, the Oakville Harvest Fall Classic.

Teams from across the province, still undecided what level they will settle into for the upcoming season, converged on Oakville to determine where they stand in the Province.

The girls were filled with excitement as we faced the Huron Heat Friday evening. Despite the score and being held pointless in our first bout, the girls played well and never took a shift off.

Later that night we ran into a strong Oakville Hornets team that would eventually win the tournament uncontested. Being a dominant force, the Hornets took the lead early and never looked back. The final buzzer handed us our 2nd loss of the day. 

Moving into Saturday we met up with the Hamilton Hawks for an afternoon game, our only game of the day. After a night of much needed rest and a little team fun, the girls came to the rink ready to play. A dominant Lynx squad netted 4 goals and held the Hawks scoreless after 3, the girls had their first win of the weekend. 

Back to the hotel for what would be the highlight of the weekend! With the afternoon/evening off, the sun shining and with great company, the only thing left to do is have a tailgate party. A beautiful setting amidst the rear parking lot overlooking the back 9 of the local golf course, the team enjoyed each others company while partaking in a BBQ feast, treats, football and frisbee. This is truly what early bird tournaments are all about! 

Heading into Sundays consolation game, this team was clearly refined. The Dolphins of Etobicoke stepped onto the ice unsuspecting of the Lynx and the team they had become over last 48 hours. A commanding 4-1 victory was not the tale of the tape as they say…these girls dominated shift after shift, period after period to leave Oakville on winning note. 

I believe I can speak for everyone when I say that although we didn’t bring home any hardware, it was an extremely successful weekend for these 15 girls.
