Flamborough Fire girls light the way at Hamilton tourney

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The Flamborough Fire Bantam Girls made history last weekend, bringing some tournament hardware home - the first for the young basketball club.

Thanks to the tenacity of the players and strategic direction from coach Jobina D'Aloisio, the Fire clinched the bronze medal in the Bantam division at the Hamilton Wildcats Tournament.

Tipping off against Blessed Sacrament 3 in the first game, the Fire overcame a 14-21 deficit in the first half to blaze to a 36-25 win.

Their confidence buoyed, the Fire went on to face the strong Brampton Blue Devils squad. But, despite almost equal opportunities at the basket, the Blue Devils' accuracy at the hoop resulted in a disproportionate score of 45-15, sending the Fire to fight for third place.

The match for the bronze medal was electric. Flamborough was up against the Dundas Dynamos in a tight race from the opening tip-off. These well-matched teams demonstrated excellent passing, driving and defensive skills. Ashleigh Elcock, Jessica Voortman-Bremer and Kayla Slobodnik showed off some great rebounding work in tandem with intelligent play by the team, allowing the Fire to defend a slim lead right to the final buzzer and 30-25 victory.

Tournament scorers were Doriana Homerski (24), Kayla Slobodnik (13), Sommer Sweetman (10), Ashleigh Elcock (8), Kelsey Juraschka (6), Jessica Voortman-Bremer (6), Kaitlin Juraschka (4), Carly Trinier (4), Karla Holmberg (2) and Natalie Rawle (2).

Chanel Clayton and Alanna Whinton contributed to the team's success both defensively and offensively.
