to our very own  Lower Lakes Female Hockey League ~ Peewee B Bronze Medal Champions

 
  The Orillia MultiCare Group Hawks peewee B team skated into the history books this weekend in Oshawa.

The talented squad, which has worked hard all season, became the first local team to qualify for the season-ending Lower Lakes Female Hockey League tournament. The Hawks not only qualified; they made it to the final four before capping their impressive run by capturing a bronze medal.

"This season started with a 32-team pool in our division," said coach Mike Torkoff. "The girls have worked so hard together since last April "¦ I am really proud of them."

In the bronze-medal clash against Haldimand, the hard-fought game was tied 1-1 after regulation time. Orillia goalie Faith Miller, who shone all weekend, blanked Haldimand in a nail-biting overtime period, then denied every attempt in the shootout, paving the way for Hawks forward Korol Pikulik to tally the winning goal that lifted her team to the bronze medal.

Mya Crawford said the team has really bought into Torkoff's approach; the coach constantly encourages his team to pay attention to the little details, stressing that when they do, big things can happen.

"I think the reason why our team is successful is because we know how to put everything that no longer matters behind us and lay everything we have on to the ice," said Crawford.

She likened the team's individual players to a jigsaw puzzle: "Our team is like a big puzzle and we are the pieces. Although the pieces don't always fit correctly, in the end, we always find a way to come together and see the big picture."

Crawford said the team is skilled and, perhaps more importantly, a tight-knit squad.

"The rink is our home away from home and my teammates are my family on the ice," she said. "And we all know what happens when we take care of the little things ... Big things happen."

She and her teammates are hopeful more big things might happen. The Hawks have qualified for the provincial championships, set for April 10 to 12.
