Saugeen Maitland Bantam AA Provincial Champions
Submitted By mark Beaven on Sunday, April 10, 2016
The Saugeen Maitland Lightning Bantam AA’s earned the title of being the best Bantam AA girls hockey team in Ontario this past weekend after winning the Gold Medal against a tough Ottawa team 1-0.
The Lightning started the weekend on Friday afternoon against the Oakville Hornets.  In a back and forth game, the Lightning finally found the back of the net in the final minutes of the game, earning a 1-0 win.    In their second game, the girls found their scoring touch with earning a 5-2 win against Brampton.  Their final game in the round robin play came against Sudbury, and the girls came out top with a 3-1 score.   

 Going undefeated through the round robin games gave Saugeen Maitland a bye to the Quarter Finals. 
Playing the North York Storm in the Quarter Finals, the Lightning started to play some of their strongest hockey of the entire season.   The girls dominated the opposition and advanced to the Semi-Finals after beating the Storm 3-0.  This win set up a repeat of the earlier Oakville match-up.  The girls came out flying and earned another 3-0 win earning the girls an opportunity to play Ottawa for the Gold Medal.

Facing a very worthy and classy opponent in the team from Ottawa, the girls knew that they had to work hard.  After getting a short-handed goal in the second period, the Saugeen Maitland Lightning persevered and held onto a 1-0 lead, giving them the right to wear the Gold Medal.
