Congratulations to the SPFHA LaSalle Sabrecats White for winning the Walter Gretzky House League Tournament Championship – U22 Division.

After the road trip to Brantford, the Sabrecats were sluggish in their game opener versus hometown Brantford Ice Cats and lost 2-0. For their second game, the Sabrecats faced a very strong team in the Haldimand River Cats and lost 5-2.

After a fun night back at the hotel, the Team regrouped and won their following games 2-1 versus SPFHA Tecumseh Tigercats Teal and 4-0 versus the London Devilettes White.

By means of a tie-breaker (our acknowledgement to the Tecumseh Tigercats), the Sabrecats advanced to the Tournament final for a rematch versus the Haldimand Rivercats.

The Sabrecats committed to a solid defensive system and great forechecking which were key in their exciting 2-0 Championship victory.

“The Coaches are very proud of these young ladies and especially the way they battled back from an 0-2 deficit; these ladies never quit,” said coach Glen Powney.
