U16s are OMHA CHAMPIONS 2022!!!
The YSE U16 Team fought hard last week against Richmond Hill and were victorious earning them a spot in the OMHAs. This weekend at the OMHAs they put it all on the line, every period, every game!

The Championship game was hosted at Sixteen Mile Arena in Oakville, Ontario. Again these players demonstrated perfection and defeated Niagara North 2-1 in overtime. Two fierce competitors fighting for the #REDHAT. But as we know there can only be 1 champion and this year, we congratulate YSE U16s.

Nicolas Ferrante buried the rebound off a shot from Carson Littlejohn! Fans in attendance online and in-person burst into tears when the winning goal was scored! A true nail biter right up until the last minute.

Our entire Association is so proud of these players and inspiring coaches. To say we are just proud is really an understatement. May their courage and relentless pursuit of success motivate others as they prepare for #OHMAs next weekend! Teamwork makes the dreamwork and great leadership established the foundation for success.

In the coming days, we'll be updating the U16 Road to OMHA page with tournament highlights. Stay tuned!

Congratulations U16s! We salute you!
