U13A - Finalists in North York Knights Winter Challenge
Submitted By Chris Neale on Mon 02 07, 22
This past weekend (Feb 4-6th) the U13A had a great result, making it to the final of the North York Knights Winter Challenge tournament.

This was an amazing result for the boys who have not seen many wins on the score sheet this season. The team went 3-0 in the round robin, which included a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the Markham Waxers. In the win over the Duffield Devil's the coaching staff presented 2 games pucks to deserving players, one for a shut-out and another for a hat-trick.

On Sunday morning the boys faced another team from Markham in the semi-finals, this time the Islanders from the GTHL. 4 goals in the third period were enough to secure a spot in the final. For many on the team, this was their first chance to play in a tournament final. They came up against the tournament hosts, the North York Knights. The final was a great game, played at a fast pace, with lots of physicality. The Renegades battled hard till the end, losing 5-3.

While not happy with silver, the boys should be very proud. After working hard all season the goals started to come in bunches, the defenders battled hard, and our goalies were the class of the tournament. The boys will take the huge confidence boost into the remainder of the regular season and expect to surprise some opponents in the playoffs!
