A hearty congrats goes to the Leaside Leafs 9U (2010) AAA team as they won the provincial championships this weekend!
After losing to Markham in their second game of the tournament, the Leaside Leafs went on a legendary run, spinning 5 straight wins to clinch the title. In fact, Leaside had to beat the vaunted Oakville A’s twice in the finals – the first one by a score of 11-3 the second a nail biting 16-14 – in order to take home the championship. According to head coach Jeff Wolburgh it was a total team effort and a well deserved result.
This is the first rep provincial championship for Leaside since the 12U Minor Peewee AAs won in 2014. And it is the first time that a Leaside Leafs AAA has won the OBAs since the Juniors in 2001!
Also, we also want to acknowledge the Leaside Leafs 8U (2011) AAA team as they had a nice run themselves this weekend – reaching the final-3 of the OBAs in their first rep season. Rookieball at Leaside appears to be thriving!
