Southern AAA capture 2nd Gold in York Region Challenge Cup
Submitted By Jeff Young on Friday, December 15, 2017
Congratulations to the Southern Region AAA team on capturing Gold at the York Region AAA Challenge Cup hosted by the Newmarket, Markham and Richmond Hill Ringette Associations.

Southern Region AAA finished round robin play tied for 1st with a 3-1-1 record after a 5-2 win over Central and a 4-4 tie with United on Friday. They won exciting 3-2 and 7-6 victories over Western & Eastern on Saturday, before a tough 5-4 loss to Northeast in their final round robin game Sunday morning.

In the final on Sunday afternoon, Southern met up again against Western. Southern took a quick 1-0 lead on a goal by Laura Soper before Western evened the scoring at the end of the 1st period. Both teams battled it out until Southern took the lead midway thru period 2 with a goal by Allie Pepper Murray. The team controlled the ring and behind strong goaltending by Christina Mongillo were able to hold the lead for a final 2-1 victory.

Congratulations to the Southern Region team on taking their second gold medal of the Challenge Cup series.

The parity of the competition was exciting with many fast paced close one goal games.

Mark your calendars for the 3rd AAA Challenge Cup on February 16th - 18th 2018 which sees the teams return to York Region during the Newmarket Ignite the Ice Annual Tournament!
