Calgary Core U16, Team Ontario U19 and Calgary RATH pick up national gold, PEI Wave picks up first-ever national medal at 2019 Credit Union Canadian Ringette Championships

Charlottetown/Summerside, PEI – April 13, 2019 – Calgary RATH are the National Ringette League champions after downing the defending champion Atlantic Attack 5-3 in today’s gold medal final at the 2019 Credit Union Canadian Ringette Championships. Calgary’s last gold-medal win was six years ago at the 2013 event in Fredericton. The Cambridge Turbos go home with bronze.

In the U16 division, Team PEI made their first ever appearance in a medal game at the Canadian Ringette Championships when they met Calgary Core for gold. In front of a hometown crowd, PEI battled it out but in the end Calgary came away with a 5-1 and the gold medal. PEI Wave claim silver and the first-ever national medal in the 41-year history of the event. In the bronze-medal game earlier in the day, Team New Brunswick beat West Ottawa 5-2 to claim bronze.

In the U19 division, Team Ontario (Guelph Predators) beat previously undefeated Laurentides (QC) 5-3 to win gold today. Guelph’s Lydia Duncan picked up two goals in the win and was absolutely beaming following the game.

“This win means everything to me,” said Duncan. “It’s the first time I’ve been on Team Ontario at nationals and we just lost to Quebec at the Canada Winter Games, so this felt like a bit of a rematch for me. We stayed focused and played the full forty minutes and we proved we were the better team.”

In earlier U19 play, Calgary Rush downed the Nepean Ravens 5-4 to claim bronze.

Games have been taking place at Credit Union Place in Summerside, Bell Aliant Centre in Charlottetown, APM Centre in Cornwall and Pownal Sports Centre in Alexandra. All-stars and the NRL Annual Awards will be announced at the closing ceremony on Saturday night in Charlottetown.
