Peewee Girls punch their ticket..........twice!
 The girls had to playoff against the Grand River Mustangs to get to provincials this year and  after getting a bye in the first round of the Lower Lakes playoffs our 2nd round opponent would be no other than the Grand River Mustangs again. So with 2 best of 3 series set up for provincials and LL playoffs the Rams took to the ice. To be expected by the end of the 2 series there was definetly some bad blood between the 2 teams.

Game 1 for the provincial qualifier and the Rams come out on top by a score of 3-1 , game #2 in Mount Forest and the girls can feel it and they came ready to play with a final score of 4-2 to sweep the Mustangs 2 straight and with that booked there ticket to the OWHA Provincials.

Next series vs. Grand River again for the 2nd round of Lower Lakes playoff and it's a best of 3 series after the knocking them out of the provincials Grand River came at the girls hard but the Rams didn't back down in a penalty filled game and played a large chunk of the  game shorthanded with 12 minutes in penalties in a 32 minute game the Rams dug deep and held them off the score sheet for a 2-0 win.
      Game 2 in Mount Forest and the girls are looking for the double sweep and it was a very back and forth affair with both goalies standing tall but after 32 minutes the final was 2-0 Rams and with that they booked a ticket for the Lower Lakes Championship Weekend against the 2 top teams out of the East Division and the winner of Kitchener or Cambridge so the top 4 teams in the Pee Wee C division will battle it out for to see who the top team is. These girls learned a lesson at our last tournament that if you take your foot off the gas the other teams will sneak up on you and with that lesson they knew don't let up. Great job girls the coaches and parents are very proud of your accomplishments this season with a 35 -5-5 record.
