Wyevale Tribe win first Northern Ontario ISC II Qualifier

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

August 29-30, 2009
Sudbury, Ontario


Mother Nature did not co-operate this past weekend as the first ever Northern Ontario ISC II Qualifier was reduced to a one day affair. Originally the four teams were to play a single round robin on Saturday followed by a single elimination round on Sunday for a 9-game tournament but as the weather has been all summer long, this could not be accomplished. Saturday was a complete wash-out and therefore, the tournament chairperson decided to make it a one-day double knockout. After 15 hours and six games, Wyevale Tribe were the first-ever winners.
