The girls competed in the Kitchener Fallfest tournament over the course of the last three days.

Game one the Rams faced off against the hometown Lady Rangers who they played once prior in their regular season. The girls got on the scoreboard late in the first frame and held on to win 1-0 versus an aggressive and good skating Kitchener team. It was a good start to the tourney as the girls were eager to avenge a 3-1 loss to this team in league play.
Game two our team faced off against Stoney Creek, although we dominated a good majority of the play our girls fell behind 1-0 after two periods. Late in the third period we would finally tie it up and walk away with a 1-1 tie at the end. Even though we spent a lot of minutes in the penalty box this game we still out played our opponents which was key.
Game three Saturday morning was against the Central York Panthers. Once again we fell behind in the first period and then early in the third period we squared the match. This game like the previous would end in a 1-1 tie, another well played game for the girls but like most games this season struggled to finish our chances.
Game four Saturday afternoon the girls hit the ice versus the Nepean Wildcats one of the top teams in the province. The start to this game couldn't have been worse for our team as one of our players was taken off the ice by ambulance in the opening two and a half minutes. After a very unfortunate start to this game the girls carried on and continued the game for their fallen teammate. Each and everyone played hard with a couple of the players taking on different positions and battled every shift for a 0-0 tie and a semi final berth.
Sunday morning the Rams played the Napanee Crunch in the semi finals another top team in the Ontario rankings. Our opponent had not surrendered a goal in the tournament so the girls knew they had to come and play each and every shift. After a scoreless first Napanee would take the lead midway through the second for a 1-0 lead going in to the third. The girls hit the ice in the third with intense play and managed to finally score and square the match 1-1. It was a great period of hockey as Napanee was feeling the heat as they had no choice but to ice the puck on several occasions. The game ended 1-1 after regulation and then went to sudden death 3 on 3 for five minutes where it still remained scoreless. Now on to the dreaded shootout which most people cringe at as a poor way to decide a winner between two good clubs. Unfortunately the girls came out on the losing side of the shootout and took the tough loss.
It was a great 3 days of hockey for our team as it showed we are capable of playing with the best teams in the province. Many positives can be taken from this tournament as the girls continue their season forward. We as a team are anxiously awaiting for our injured player to make a speedy recovery and join the team in the near future. Hold your heads high girls WELL DONE!!!!!
