Provincial silver as good as gold for atom Rams
Submitted By Kevin Rice on Mon 04 13, 15
MISSISSAUGA – The Mount Forest atom C Ram girls put the finishing touches to their dream season by capturing a sparkling silver medal at the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association championships.

Way to go Girls on a Fantastic Season and all the best next year!

By so doing, the Rams become only the second girls’ team in Mount Forest hockey history to bring home a medallion and a shiny new banner from the OWHA championships.
The Rams steamrolled undefeated through the round-robin segment at the three-day event beginning with a 15-0 romp over Scarborough on Friday.

Tori VanTol and Chaise McRobb led the charge with four goals and seven points a piece while Lexi Rice and Jordyn Storey both scored twice. Megan Parker, Karlee Rice and Lexi Walker added singles.

McRobb had a hat trick while Storey, Van Tol, and Walker added singles in a 6-1 win over the Zorra Fusion on Friday.

Van Tol scored twice in a 4-1 win over Petrolia on Saturday morning which earned the Rams a berth in the quarter-finals.

Rice and McRobb added singles.

The win-or-go home playoffs saw the Rams clamp down defensively, beginning with a 2-0 win over South Huron.

McRobb scored twice in the win while goalie Brianna Gordon notched her second shutout of the tournament.

Mount Forest booked their ticket to the final with a 3-1 win over Mitchell in Sunday's semifinal.

Van Tol, Rice, and Parker scored in the win.
And of course, the Rams were destined to meet their league rivals, the Chatsworth Rebels, in the gold-medal game Sunday afternoon, falling 1-0 in a heart-breaker.
The Rebels presented a stiff challenge, with their impenetrable defence, one that took no prisoners and had a seemingly hypnotic effect on the game's referees.
But the Rams never quit, displaying class and integrity throughout, defining characteristics of their team and its coaches, according to one insightful Ram parent.

This is absolutely an accomplishment our girls can cherish for a lifetime,” said Rams head coach Kevin McRobb, “every time they walk into our arena and see that banner hanging there.”
And so, the atom girls close the book on their season, one that featured record-breaking individual efforts from captain Chaise McRobb who posted Gretzky-like numbers in her final atom campaign before making the jump to peewee hockey. She tallied a dizzying 103 goals and 58 assists this year.

Not to be outdone, Rams goalie Brianna Gordon notched a sterling 41-6-1 record with an astounding 25 shutouts this season.

It was a group of BFFs which I love to see,” said Coach McRobb. “You don’t get good kids without a good group of parents to help out and everyone pitched in to contribute to our success as a team.”

The Mount Forest girls end their season with additional tournament wins in Aylmer and Clearview and even defeated Chatsworth in their WOAA championship tournament to be proclaimed league champions. The Rams also collected a silver medal at an early-season tourney in Alliston.
