Oxford Attack U13 Girls win Bronze in Windsor

The girls from the U13 Oxford Attack squad have some new bling to show off after winning bronze in Windsor.

The U13 Oxford Attack Bantam Girls team came home from the recent OBA Championships in Windsor with bronze medals!  

The girls opened play with a tough 32-25 loss to Tecumseh, playing well enough to win but struggling to score at key moments in the game.  In their second game, the Attack faced top-seeded Orillia and came out playing some of their best basketball of the season.  The Attack won 28-20, good enough for second place in their pool and a spot in the semi finals.

The Attack met St. Thomas in their semi final, a very tight defensive game that came down to the final buzzer.  Unfortunately, St. Thomas came out on top, 21-19.  This was a tough loss to swallow, as Oxford had beaten St. Thomas just a couple of weeks ago in the final of the Blessed Sacrament Tournament in Hamilton.

However, the Attack were able to regroup and find some much-needed energy for their bronze medal game against second-seeded Ancaster Blitz, a team that they had not been able to beat all season.  Oxford raced out to an early lead but Ancaster, as expected, came back and eventually took a 4 point lead with only a few minutes to go.  The Attack stuck to their game plan, playing solid defence and demonstrating patience at the offensive end of the floor.  The girls were rewarded with a 25-23, on a late basket by Laila Taha, claiming the bronze medals.

Coaches Jon Empringham and Roger Hall, along with special assistant Kim Shepard, would like thank the girls, and their families, for a great season.
