Southern Region AAA Team Captures Gold in London!!
Submitted By Steve Zanon on Sunday, November 19, 2017
The Southern Region AAA team traveled to London for the season’s first AAA Challenge Cup over November 10-12, 2017 and came away with a gold medal.

The team finished round robin play in 2nd place with a 3-2 record.  Impressive 6-3 and 6-4 wins over Eastern and Western highlighted the opening day on Friday.  After losing the first game on Saturday 8-4 to United, the Southern team bounced back with a 5-0 win over Central.  Round robin play concluded on Sunday morning with a 5-4 loss to Northeast.


In the final on Sunday afternoon, the Southern team prevailed in an exciting back-and-forth affair 6-5 over a very game United squad.  After controlling the majority of the play in the first period, Southern held a 3-1 lead on goals from Laura Soper, Jada Laliberte, and Liza Knill.  The United team pushed back in the 2nd period and went ahead 5-4 with 8:54 to play.  After Soper and Knill scored 30 second apart, Southern skillfully controlled the ring for much of the final 6 minutes to seal the victory.

The next AAA Challenge Cup will be held in Richmond Hill, Newmarket, and Markham on December 8-10.
