This past weekend saw the U14 girls compete in their final OBL weekend before heading off to play in the Ontario Cup finals in Niagara Falls on April 29th/30th.
As expected following a long lay-off over March, the girls came out a little slow and sluggish in their first game versus Vaughan City. Turn-overs on offense and team defense led to a low scoring game, however the defensive intensity picked up late in the game enough to capture the win.
In the second game of the day, the lady Spirits faced off for the 3rd time against the Orangeville Hawks, with the tiebreaker on the line. In this high scoring game, the girls picked up their intensity on individual and team defense, often times frustrating the Hawks into forced shots and turnovers. Offensively, the girls faced yet another common 2-3 zone, however with much improved outside shooting and ball movement, the Hawks were forced to change-up their defense but it didn’t seem to matter, as the Spirits walked away with a hard fought 44-38 W.
Through hard work and dedication, the u14’s end the OBL regular season with an impressive 10-2 record. The girls would like to thank their sponsors for their financial support throughout the season.
