Oakville Rangers U18 BB Win Championship at Veterans Day on the Beach Tournament in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

After 3 competitive games in the round robin our Rangers won a tough fought and physical semi-final game over St James Academy (Virginia) to place them as top seed in the Finals versus the Florida Golden Wolves, a top tier A Division team. With a loud home team crowd and host team momentum against us, the Rangers found themselves down a goal early in the first period.  We battled back to tie it up in the second, and all the momentum and hard work would not let them be denied this day.  The Rangers pushed the pace and scored 4 unanswered goals in the third to win the Championship.  The Rangers went undefeated in the tourney and came home Champs!!!
