A great win by a team with a famous name. The Kemptville Royals U13B2 team took part in the U13B division of the Bell Capital Cup over the holidays, facing another 26 teams in their division. Lucus Drew, Manager of the team, provided this report to the Times:

“We played three round robin games, going undefeated over those games by winning 5-0 over the Nepean Fury, winning 9-1 over the Osgoode Rideau Sens, and winning 13-0 over the Pontiac Lions. Over our three round robin games we scored 27 goals and only allowed one against. This left us seeded in 2nd place overall. We played the Leitrim Hawks in the quarter finals, winning 9-0. 

“Then, in the semi-finals, our toughest test of the tournament, against Osgoode Rideau U13B3. With the game tied at 1 after 3 periods, the Royals scored an overtime, short-handed winning goal to earn the right to play in the Finals, at the Canadian Tire Centre. In the finals, the Royals defeated the Smith Falls Bears to take home gold. The team played fantastic all tournament long, and brought home gold to Kemptville!”

Congratulations to the Kemptville Royals U13B2 team on an amazing achievement, winning the tournament with a goal-scoring triumph of 36 for and only one against before the final games.
