It was smiles all around on April 5 for the Frontenac Fury Bantam Girls as they were crowned Bantam “A” Champs at the Greater Kingston Girls Hockey Association champion’s day held at Centre 70.
The girls earned their spot in the “A” final by squeaking by the Napanee Crunch 3-2 in a spectacular come back from 0-2 with only 4 minutes left in the game. The “A” final against the Gananoque Royals was a well-fought game by both teams, with the Fury winning the final 1-0. The girls end their season with 14 wins, 6 losses and 3 ties.
They had an amazing season making it to the final round of qualifying for the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association Provincials. They beat the Brockville Angels and Kemptville Storm to move on to the final round of provincial qualifiers where they fell to the Clarence/Rockland Lightening in the best 2 out of 3 series.
“We are so proud of all the girls in our association,” says Buff Chadwick, president of the Frontenac Girls Hockey Association. “Our Atom team won the “A” Championship, our Peewee Team was runners-up in the “B” Championship and our Midget team was runners-up in the “A” Championship.”
“We are offering quality girls hockey at North Frontenac,” says Sue Hitchcock. “I think the end of the season results speak volumes for the commitment of our girls and coaching staff.”
