The Falcons went across the Ottawa River during the January 8 weekend for the Québec Ringette Tournament in Pierrefond. They came back home with gold medals around their necks for their first big win of the season.
« The Falcon had been unsuccessful in winning any games during the regular season this year, sot hey were beginning to feel slightly defeated, » stated Eric Leduc, general manager for the team.
The first game of the tournament on the Friday night saw the Falcons lose to the 4Cité Stars. But that the last defeat for the squad.
Leduc noted that a « team-bonding experience » at their Montréal hotel « brought out the best in the girls » and that translated into a crushing 9-1 victory Saturday morning against the host team, the Pierrefonds Lynx. The Falcons went on to hammer the PCRA Power squad 11-4 in the afternoon. Leduc described the game as « a whole lot of fun on the ice » for the players who showed increasing confidence in their ability now.
The Falcons entered the Sunday finals in a rematch with Pierrefonds. Clarence-Rockland won the game 4-3 with a last-minute goal as the clock ran down.
« We can’t wait to see the FUN3-Théoret Falcons continue to showcase their teamwork during the regular season, » stated Leduc.
This season’s CR Falcons FUN3-Théoret team includes: Mariève Miville, Hope Beaupré, Riley Stam, Madison Levesque, Carissa Leduc, Makayla Leduc, Keylynn Fergusson, Malika Lacelle, Jade Théoret, Emalyne Stevens, Josephine Lopez, and Riley McDonnell.
