PeeWee C roadrunners Win Bronze at Toronto Leaside 37th Annual March Madness Tournament
Submitted By Bryan Reeve on Tuesday, March 15, 2016
Congratulations to the Cambridge PeeWee C roadrunners for an outstanding weekend in the B Division at the 37th Annual Leaside March Madness Tournament. The team came away as well-deserved Bronze medal winners.

After the round robin games yielded a 2-1 victory (vs. Aurora Panthers), a tough 5-0 loss (vs. Leaside Wildcats) and 1-1 tie (vs. Durham West Lightning), the roadrunners faced the North Halton Twisters in the quarter-final. With strong goaltending, a solid defensive showing, and a timely offensive counter-attack, the roadrunners were able to secure their semi-final spot with a 3-2 victory.

In the semi-finals, the girls again faced an unbelievably talented squad from Leaside, the Wildcats, and were handed their second humbling defeat, losing by a carbon-copy score of 5-0. However, all was not lost, as the display of sportsmanship was top notch, as the Leaside coaching staff decided to forego their own team’s Player of the Game selection, and presented it to the Cambridge goaltender, #29, Alyssa Simpson, who put on quite a show between the pipes, holding the game scoreless until late in the second period before the tide turned in Leaside’s favour.

In the Bronze medal game, the Peewee roadrunners faced off against the Sault Ste. Marie Wildcats in a wild back-and-forth affair. Outstanding goaltending – this time by the unflappable #48, Hannah Boer – once again led the team to a 3-0 victory and a Bronze medal showing in the tournament. Goals by roadrunner Team Captain Taylor Clarke, Piper Santarella, and Katie Horyn paced the offence.

The team looks forward to showing what is possible through hard work and strong team play at the Provincial Tournament next month.

Congratulations, girls. Well done.
