Fun Times At The 7th Annual WORA Coaches Game

On Sunday, February 9th, as a wrap up to the 2020 West Ottawa Ringette Association tournament, we held  our 7th annual game coaches game. Each year we play, we make a point to give back to our communities by collecting non-perishable food items donated by association members and friends attending the game.

As always, this game, whether watching or playing, is a lot of fun for everyone, and this year was no exception. It was a close game with two evenly matched teams. The West Ottawa Wild Pilons (in white) beat the West Ottawa Wild Bench Warmers 8-7.

Thank you to all that came to the event and donated. We look forward to doing it all again next year!

The West Ottawa U14B Flying Squirrels Win Silver (Again)!

Another weekend and another tournament final for the Flying Squirrels. Coach Rob says:

“After going undefeated in the round-robin, we lost to a hungry 4Cities team, both games we played against that team were close. We appreciated having them play at our tournament. For those of you counting, that’s 4 tournament finals with 1 gold and 3 silvers. We’ve been having an amazing season, but we know we have some work to do to make sure our last tournament yields a different result for us. The girls are ready and want that gold. Look out, the Flying Squirrels are coming, and they’re hungry. :-)”

Congratulations on another great tournament performance Flying Squirrels!
