At the Southern Regional Championships this past weekend, the Burlington Blast OPEN (+18) team sent me off to retirement in a very exciting conclusion to my coaching career. The team went undefeated in the round robin with 2 wins and a tie, which set us up in first place. Tournament host, Markham was in second and would give Burlington a tough battle in the final. 

The ladies told me before the game that they were going to win this one for me. It was a very tight checking game. You could tell that they were putting everything into it. But so was Markham and buoyed by the home town crowd, they weren’t going down easily. It was tied 2 – 2 at the half and then it was 3 – 3 after regulation. With a penalty taken with 40 seconds remaining in regulation, our team would be shorthanded for the first minute and 20 seconds of the O/T. Luckily, we won the toss to start the O/T and all I said to them was; Let’s end this quickly. At a minute and half in, Alex Coombe scored her third goal of the game, and her tenth of the tournament! The bench erupted into euphoria, it was a dramatic ending to what has been a wonderful experience filled with many fantastic memories but few were as dramatic as this one.

Thank you to the entire team, including our bench staff, Paul, & Monica for another super season!!!
