U14B Winds Gold at St. Bruno Tournament

The CORA U14B Moodie team, otherwise known as the Donkeys on Ice, took home the Gold medal at the St. Bruno ringette tournament on the weekend of February 1-3, 2019. The Donkeys began their gold medal quest with an impressive 4-2 win over the Saint Hubert Falcons in their opening game. They followed this up with a hard fought 1-1 draw with Montreal Nord 96 who desperately needed a win to have a chance to play in the final game. The Donkeys booked their place in the final and rematch with the Falcons with an early Sunday morning 5-4 win over the host St. Bruno Intrepides who were already eliminated from qualifying for the final, but wanted to go out of their home tournament on a high note. The Final was a closely fought game with the Falcons striking first, but the Donkeys responded with three unanswered goals and then held on for a 4-2 victory.

Congratulations to all the girls for coming together as a team and working so hard to take home gold and go undefeated over a four game stretch in a 28 hour time frame. We also want to thank the coaches Jamie, Chris and Stefan for their hard work and motivation to get the girls to achieve this milestone. As a result, the coaches had to perform a chicken dance on centre ice after the medal ceremony!
