Manitoba, Nepean Ravens and Cambridge Turbos claim national gold at ringette championships

Wood Buffalo, AB – April 4, 2015 – It’s taken six years, but the Cambridge Turbos have reclaimed the National Ringette League (NRL) championship title after downing Richmond Hill Lightning 6-2 in today’s final. The Lightning, who have never medalled at this event, take home silver.

When asked what made this year different, veteran Turbo Jackie Gaudet, who scored a pair in the win, commented, “Our whole team was on the same page both on and off the ice and we were all working towards the same goal. This is a tough tournament, everyone wants to win and you can’t take your position going into the finals for granted.”

After going undefeated all week, the Nepean Ravens shut out Alberta 3-0 to claim national gold in the U19 division. Nepean’s Molly Lewis picked up a pair of goals in the game to bring her point total this week to 41. “I wouldn’t have been able to score any goals without my team,” Lewis commented modestly right after receiving her gold medal. “From the goalie saves to every pass, this was a team effort.” Metcalfe’s Rianne Munro recorded the shutout between the pipes for the Ravens.

Alberta goes home with U19 silver and Alberta’s St. Albert Mission take home bronze after downing British Columbia 3-2 earlier in the day. St. Albert’s Marie-Eve Gauthier scored two for the Mission.

Manitoba dealt Ontario their first loss of the week in the U16 gold medal final, downing the team from London 6-4 to claim gold. Winnipeg’s Jenna Bazin picked up a pair of goals and two assist in the win. Ontario takes home and Alberta takes home bronze after downing Calgary Pursuit 5-4 in overtime earlier in the day. Calgary’s Eliza Leitch scored the overtime winner for Alberta.

A total of 37 teams played 160 games in six days and competed in three divisions – U16, U19 and the National Ringette League (19+). All-stars and the NRL Annual Awards will be announced at the closing award ceremony tonight.
