The Toronto-Leaside Jr Wildcats had a very busy final week of their pre-season schedule. The team played a total of 6 games, had 2 practices and ran a successful fundraiser with over 40+ young Wildcats in attendance.
The Jr Wildcats faced off against the University of Toronto to start the week and skated to a 1-0 loss. It was a fast paced back and forth game with great scoring chances and defensive efforts by both teams.
The next night, the team hosted a fundraiser for the tyke, novice, atom and peewee Wildcats at Leaside Arena. Both the Jr Wildcats and the little Wildcats in attendance had a great time on the ice.
The week ended with the team playing in the Stoney Creek University Showcase out in Hamilton. The team had 3 wins and 1 loss in the round robin, leaving them in a 3 way tie for 1st place in their group. Unfortunately, the team lost out in terms of goal differential and ended up playing in the 3rd place placement game instead of moving on to the medal round. In their final game, Leaside defeated Whitby 2-0 to end the tournament on a high note, finishing with a 4-1 record overall.
The Jr Wildcats start their regular season PWHL schedule this Friday September 22nd against Cambridge at 745pm at Preston Arena. The Wildcats suit up again the following night against Burlington for an 8pm start at Mainway Arena. The team’s home opener is scheduled for Wednesday September 27th at 855pm at Leaside Arena against Whitby. Please come out and support the team as they get started on the season ahead.
