More importantly, CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OGHA Teams (House and Competitive) for another great season!!! This year had many challenges to be sure, but we faced them and are looking forward to an even better season next year. We have a great bunch of parents, a solid group of volunteers, and an amazing group of players who will continue to make the OGHA a great place to play hockey at EVERY level!
The Novice DS team played in the 50th Brampton Canadettes Easter Tournament April 14-16. Billed as the worlds largest and longest running female hockey tournament, the girls went undefeated in their pool and won the quarterfinals. While playing hard in the semis, they lost to the eventual tournament champions. Congrats to the Novice DS team who showed Toronto that girls hockey is alive and well in the Nation’s Capital. What a great weekend and experience!!!
Congratulations to the three OGHA Peewee teams who represented the OGHA Blue and White by taking three of the four semi-final spots in their division at the 34th Annual KGHA House League Tournament March 24-26. After a thrilling double-overtime victory over Peewee 3, Peewee 1 met Peewee 2 in an all OGHA final. The final was just as exciting with the Peewee 2 "Vipers" scoring a late third-period goal to take the Championship home, 1-0. An awesome showing by all the OGHA Peewee House teams to end the season! Well done ladies!
Mandi Duhamel from Hockey Canada and a large contingent of players from the CWHL ran two skill sessions for our house league players this past weekend. I’ve never seen a group of girls so excited and inspired! A huge thanks to Hockey Canada, OWHA and the CWHL for making this happen.
