The River East U14A Ringette team struck pre-season gold at the Dakota Tournament held Oct. 24-27 at the Jonathan Toews Arena. This tournament was the first for the new team and

although they started out a little unsure, they were able to find their groove very quickly.

The team had only played one game together before going into the tournament and both players and coaches were uncertain of what the outcome would be. This year the Kaos is made up of players from four different ringette associations which means that many of these players had not even met each other before the team was formed.

They are a team of 15 players with only three returning from last season. But they were able to come together and their progress was exciting to witness.

They faced three strong A teams from throughout Manitoba during the round-robin portion of the tournament. The Springfield, Dakota and Interlake teams were all tough competitors but the River East Kaos remained undefeated going into the gold medal game.  

The girls entered the gold medal game as the first place team and had to play a rematch against the strong Interlake Ignite team.

The Interlake team came out strong and scored the first goal. River East tied it up but Interlake pulled ahead again. The play was back and forth for the entire game and ended up going into overtime.

The Kaos went in to the overtime period shorthanded but were still able to keep the play entirely in the Ignite’s end of the ice until Lexi Ellis scored the golden goal which gave the Kaos not only the gold medal but also an undefeated record going into the regular season.

It was an exciting weekend for the players, coaches and parents and gave us even more evidence the ringette is the fastest sport on ice.

Congratulations River East Kaos.
