7 competitive SSM Wildcat teams from various age groups travelled to the greater TORONTO area this past weekend to compete at the OWHA Provincials tournament. This particular group included girls ages 15-17, representing the Midget C division.
Midget C teams all across Ontario had to compete throughout the 2018-2019 hockey season to win a berth in this prestigious OWHA event. 16 Midget C teams were successful in advancing to the Midget C division at the OWHA PROVINCIAL playoffs April 5-7th.
