U10 Fights hard to win Gold Medal at OCRRL Championships 2017 in Oshawa !! April 7-9

Playing against tough opponents - Richmond Hill (A) , Barrie, and Oshawa.






Markham Bears U10 Central Region Champs!!!
What a weekend it was!!! 
After a disappointing weekend at the Southern Region Championships, the team was ready to start Central Region Championships with a bang.  First up, Richmond Hill Applebaum, a team the Bears had faced quite a few times during the season and had a fairly easy time with.  Well, it was not meant to be an easy weekend as our Bears had to fight hard to finally tie the game fairly late in the second period to walk away with a precious point. 

Richmond Hill came out to play and gave our U10s a tough battle.  Next up, Barrie, a team we figure would be our toughest competition.  And sadly, we were right.  This was a team with which we exchanged wins early in the year, and we knew we would have good competition.  Barrie came out ready to play and delivered a clear message by beating us 8 to 3.  Any gold medal would have to go through Barrie. 

To finish the round robin, we needed a win to play for gold, and we needed a Richmond Hill loss.  We faced Oshawa, a very physical team.  Oshawa had a 3 goals lead early in the 2nd period.  We eventually tied the game with about 6 minutes left.  We then scored the go-ahead goal 3 minutes later and never looked back.  This was a little closer than every one was comfortable with.  Needless to say there was a lot of tension both on the bench and in the stands.  With Barrie eliminating Richmond Hill, we were off to the gold medal game!! 

Over the weekend, we talked a lot about ring possession, and the more we had the ring, the less likely the other team could score.  The message clearly got through in the finals.  We finally scored the first goal of a game, in fact we scored 5 unanswered goals.  Our Bears were hungry for the ring and Barrie had a hard time taking the ring for any period of time.  They eventually scored 3 and the first period ended 5-3 for us.  Coach Lizzy told the girls how much confidence we all had in the team and they could go back out there and finish the game knowing that things would be all right. 

Barrie scored one more goal early in the second, and we respond halfway through the period.  We then made sure that we held on to that ring for as long as we could to secure the win.  When the final buzzer went off, the girls jumped on the ice with joy, the coaching staff celebrated and the parents went crazy.  This win capped off a very rewarding season for everyone involved and was a reward for all the hard work every one put in.  The coaching staff would like to thank the parents of the U10 athletes for the incredible support they provided for their children.  Without all of them, the team would not have been as successful as it has been.
