Lindsey Carson and Lexi Ferraccioli of Puslinch helped team Ontario win silver in PEI at the Eastern Canadian Ringette Championships on April 17th. The Guelph Predators captured the provincial title in Timmins in late March and headed east representing Ontario.
With 3 wins and 2 ties in round robin play Team Ontario finished in top spot and received a bye to Sunday’s Championship game. Ontario lead 2-0 heading to the final period but Nova Scotia battled back to take a 3-2 lead with 2:59 left in the game. With the goalie pulled Ontario scored with 1:28 left in the game forcing overtime. Both teams traded opportunities in overtime with Nova Scotia scoring 8 minutes into overtime.
It had been a crazy time for the Guelph team as they played 9 games in 4 days to capture the Provincial Championship in Timmins back on March 20th. The girls had roughly 3 weeks to prepare before heading east on April 13th. The Eastern Canadian Championships was a 4 day tournament and Team Ontario played another 6 games.
Congratulations to Lindsey and Lexi.
