Congratulations to our Novice 2 team who won their provincial championships this past weekend.  After a tough loss to start the round robin portion of the tournament the Braves responded well and delivered a performance that they should be proud of. 

After making their way through a tough round robin draw they dispatched the Toronto Stars in their quarter final game with a convincing 7-0 victory.  This set up a match with Niagara on the Lake.  Once again the Braves proved to be the stronger team with a dominant 10-2 victory.  The finals would have the Braves face a determined team from Gloucester.  KW came out flying.  Their trademark speed allowed them to jump out to commanding 4-0 lead.  Gloucester battled back hard and rallied for 2 goals.  This day would belong to the Braves though who battled hard on defense and with some of the most active sticks seen all tournament. They would hold on for a 4-2 win and a Provincial Championship. 

Congrats and thank you to all the players and coaches for making our association so proud.  You proved that it's not about how you start but how you finish.  Enjoy your well earned championship.
