April 6, 2023: Ringette Regional Event (Tillsonburg, ON)

Glendale High School hosted the inaugural Gemini Classic Ringette Tournament at the Tillsonburg Community Center.

Eight teams stretching from Goderich to Niagara Falls took part in the one-day event. Teams competed in 2-pools in a round robin format. The top 2 teams from each pool moved on to the semi-final rounds. Winners of these semi-final games competed in a final championship game where St. Mary’s defeated Dorchester (Sutton), 2-1.

Glendale finished 3-0 in the round robin playoff with wins over East Elgin, A.N. Myer (Niagara) and Dorchester (Lindsay). The semi-final match-up was the fourth game of the day and the Gems simply ran out of steam, falling behind 4-1 to Dorchester (Sutton) early on in the game, but were able to battle back within one as time expired.

This event was a huge success and would not be possible without the support and contributions from community sponsors at Zehrs Tillsonburg, Tillsonview Fairways, The Tillsonburg Legion, Service Master Tillsonburg and Michael and Christina Gazley from Tim Hortons.

A special thanks to the Tillsonburg Ringette Association, the volunteers, and the Tillsonburg Community Center staff, specifically Rebecca Turrill, for making this event run effortlessly.
