Oshawa Vikings, Waterloo Lions and Oakville Crusaders are 2023 Junior Cup Champions
Junior Cup Day took place on Sunday, August 20th at Fletcher's Fields and saw some excellent action across the U16 and U18 Divisions. With U16 Boys games starting at 9am, things wrapped up around noon and saw the Waterloo Lions crowned first place after a tight game against the Kingston Panthers who took second place while the Georgian Bay Titans finished third.
Over on the girls side, the Oshawa Vikings seized the championship after their victory against the Oakville Crusaders, placing them in second and North Halton Highlanders in third. The U16 Vikings girls seemed to have begun a trend as this was just ONE of two championships earned that day in the Girls' Divisions.
After a win against the Aurora Barbarians, the U18 Girls Oshawa Vikings secured first place as a result of the round robin tournament that took place. The Guelph Redcoats who also won against the Barbarians landed second place, leaving Aurora in third after a highly competitive day.
As for the U18 Boys, the Oakville Crusaders took home the gold for the second year in a row after winning their game against the Bytown Blues, putting them in second place. The Peterborough Pagans battled with Balmy Beach for third place and came out on top.
We look forward to next year's extraordinary young talent!
