The U14B Lethbridge Locomotive earned gold at this year’s Esso Golden Ring, the largest ringette tournament in the world.
They played an intensive schedule of six competitive games over three days, several of which started before sunrise!
The Locos were on track for the round robin, with wins over Northwest Eclipse, South Calgary Royals, and Bowview Ignite. Goals for and against were 19-8, giving the Locos the top seed in their pool. They then steamrolled a very tough, physical Indus team 8-5 in the quarter final. The Sunday morning train started rolling for a 7am semi-final, and the Locos were able to edge out Bowview Ignite once again, 5-3. The final game was played against Northwest Fusion, and the Locos played like a well-oiled machine to win gold in a decisive 8-2 victory.
