Bantam BB win Silver at the London Devilettes Tournament

February 6, 2017

Congratulations to coach Deirdre Erichsen and her Bantam BB girls for winning silver at the London Devilettes Tournament on February 5th, 2017.

The team opened the tournament strong winning 4-0 and 2-1 against Wilmot Wolverines and Markham-Stouffville Stars, securing their spot in the Semi Finals against the Kensington Valley Ravens from Michigan. The semi-final was an exciting affair with both teams trading chances against outstanding goaltending. The Dolphins killed off a 5-3 penalty before sending the game into 4 on 4 overtime. The Dolphins ended the stalemate with just over a minute into the extra frame, sending them to the finals.

In the finals, The Dolphins made their Prime-Time TV Debut on Rogers 13 London in the finals, facing a strong Ancaster Avalanche team who score 3 goals early in the first period which could not be overcome. The Dolphins put up a strong effort with many chances but in the end, had to settle for their second place finish.

The Dolphins would like to congratulation the Ancaster Avalanche on their well-deserved victory, and to thank the London Devilettes Girls Hockey Association and their many volunteers for hosting a great tournament.
