Sarnia Lady Sting Midget AA Capture Silver in LLFHL Final Four Champions Weekend.

After winning the West division Championship last week, the Sarnia Lady Sting Midget AA team continued their winning ways and finished off a wildly successful and entertaining season by winning silver at the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League (LLFHL) Final Four Champions tournament this past weekend.

Playing with just 2 lines for the past 6 weeks (due to injuries) the team knocked off several of the highest ranked teams in the province along the way to their Silver Medal. The team started the tournament facing the Oakville Hornets, the tournament favourite and 3rd ranked team in Ontario. Down 2-1 in the third and with momentum on their side, the Sting looked for the equalizer and came very close on several occasions, before allowing 2 more goals, including an empty netter, to drop Game 1, 4-1.

The girls then bounced back later in the day and handily defeated the Aurora Panthers 5-0. Needing at least a tie against another highly ranked Toronto Aeros team, the team played one of their finest games of the seasons to earn a hard fought 3-3 tie and a berth in the Gold medal game and re-match against Oakville. Despite a fine effort, the girls didn't quite have enough gas left in the tank to contain the high flying Hornets and lost 4-0.

Every player contributed equally and effectively to the success of the team this year and the team was notably complimented by many observers and opposing teams for their efforts. Finishing second out of 46 teams in a league of the top Midget age players in Ontario is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations girls.

A special thanks and good luck to our graduating 3rd year players; Naomi Dubs, Meghan Blythe, Leslie Brandon and Julia Lupton.

The remaining players will all gather for the 2015/16 tryouts in a few weeks for another run at a championship next year.

Team members are: Naomi Dubs, Emma McCormick, Leslie Brandon, Selena Dirven, Meghan Blythe, Jordyn Butler, Claire Vanden Eynde, Aynsley Harrison, Kristin Parkes, Julia Lupton, Marissa Swan, Katie Barwitzki, Madison Findlater, Nicole Rogers and Jocelyn Eves. The team's Head Coach is Doug Eves and was helped out by Brandi Warner, Linda Brandon, Ian Findlater and Ed Vanden Eynde.
