The Huron Lakers Girls Novice team won Gold medals at Hamilton's Blessed Sacrament tournament this past weekend. The Blessed Sacrament tournament is the biggest in Ontario and your team's results have a direct effect on your final provincial ranking and seeding for the provincial tournament. The Lakers entered the tournament as the underdogs matching up against teams ranked as much as 14 seeds higher then themselves, based on the initial Ontario Basketball rankings.

Their first game of the tournament had them matching up against the division's highest ranked Peterborough Power team. The teams were tied at the end of regular time and needed an overtime shift to decide the winner. The Lakers ended up losing by one basket in a well played game. They then faced a big
imposing Blessed Sacrament team, losing by 8 points. The last game of pool play was against Barrie Royals. The girls had beaten Barrie in double overtime at the Guelph tournament a few weeks earlier. The girls were very excited to come out on top again with a score of 21-14. The results of pool play had them finishing 3rd in their pool, which placed them in the consolation semi finals the next day.

The Lakers semi final game would bring them up against a now familiar Etobicoke team. The two teams have played twice already this season with the Lakers coming out on top in two very close games. The Lakers played possibly their best game of the tournament beating Etobicoke 26-11. This win lead them to the gold medal game against a tough St. Catherine's team.

The girls played extremely well and came out winning th7 gold medal with a score of 22-17. The team worked very hard all weekend. The coaches were most impressed with their unselfish play and aggressive defense throughout the weekend. Their next and last tournament will be the provincial championships the weekend of March 27th in Whitby.
