Today we played Hall and Lyon-Hatcher in our final two games of this round robin event. These teams are described below in yesterday’s e-mail.
We lost to Hall 3-1, and then in our final game we beat Lyon-Hatcher by the same score 3-1, but this time in our favour.
We finished with a 5-2 record, same as Hall, but dropped to third place on a tiebreaker (the earlier face to face game result).
Still a great result considering how far we’ve come this year. One year ago Alexander’s team with three other boys lost two straight at regionals to finish about 30th in Ontario. With a new team this year we started the season as about the 20th ranked team, but slowly moved. Now we have finished at third !
With our top three finish, we have been invited to the Ontario Winter Games to be held in Muskoka Feb 27 – March 2 in which the top three teams from the Northern Ontario Curling Association will also compete with us. A total of about 3500 athletes, coaches and officials will participate in 27 sports in this biannual event.
