Major Atom Girls win Silver Medal at Mike O’Conner Tournament

The Atom girls put up a great fight all weekend at the Mike O’Conner Tournament hosted by GCBA Wolverines.  Playing in Atom Div 2, the Blazers went a perfect 3-0 in round robin, easily taking all games and earning their top spot in pool play.  In the semi final crossover game Sunday, they beat the Cornwall Lions to set up a rematch against Ottawa Next Level from their own tournament.

In the championship game, the two teams battled back and forth and it literally came down to the last minute where ONL hit a free throw in last 20 seconds to tie the game and send to overtime.  In overtime, the game remained close and was tied again in the last minute.  Unfortunately for the Blazers, ONL hit a shot to win the game 42-40.  The girls played extremely tough all weekend dealing with the flu and short bench.

Congrats to Coach Andrea and the team.  They have 2 gold medals and a silver this season in their 4 tournaments.
