Ridley College Sports Update

First Boys Basketball
The senior boys basketball team won 2 quarters and tied one in the OFSAA final in North Bay but unfortunately lost the thread in the 2nd quarter when they were outscored 21-4 to lose 61-47 to a very talented and aggressive Forester Collegiate from Windsor. Ridley led 9-7 at the end of the first quarter but some key misses, questionable calls and a lack of focus disrupted the Tiger attack early in the 2nd quarter and the team never really recovered. With 3 minutes remaining in the game, Ridley was down only 9 points but that was as close as they would get. Cooper Rigg had 18 and Kristers Moisejs 11 points, both playing in their final game as Ridley Tigers led the scoring tonight. Special mention must also go to the other graduating seniors Jimmy Chueng, Kutiba Senusi, and Christian Ho. The Tigers finish the season with an overall record of 21-8.

Well done swimmers! The swimming team finished 23rd of 282 teams in the province.

First Girls Hockey
First Girls Hockey team lost the CISAA Semi Final to the eventual championship winners Bishop Strachan. It was a hard fought battle with the final score being 5-2. Sarah Robichaud put the Tigers on the board first, assisted by Eleeza Cox, and Kara Power. The Bobcats were able to score twice in the second period to take the lead 2-1. The Tigers had a number of scoring chances, but were not able to put the puck away. Fueled by momentum, BSS put two more goals on the board midway through the third period. With over three minutes remaining, goaltender Karlyle Robinson sprinted to the bench for an extra attacker. The Tigers were able to score on the man-advantage to cut the Bobcat’s lead in half. The Tigers continued the to gamble with the empty net, but unfortunately BSS was able to score, putting the CISAA finals out of reach for Ridley. Congratulations to the girls on a very respectable season. The coaching staff wishes to give an extra thanks to our seven graduating seniors for their heart and leadership, and entertainment on long bus rides…
