2005 Cardinals OFSAA Consolation Champs
2003 Cardinals 35-5
SENIOR GIRLS TEAM.We are continuing work on the site.The 2010 team I couldn't follow
taking care of a senior citizen (administrator). The 2009 version of the Cardinals were unable to secure a Wecssa div 1 victory.
AAAA was won by St Annes AAA by General Amherst AA by and A by Lajeunesse.
Amherst and St Annes and Lajeunesse won Swossa and Amherst secured an Offsa Silver medal in AAA after 5 golds at the AA level one of the most successful ladies teams from the area. Their last loss against a wecssa opponent was FJB Cards.
The 2006 version of the Cards went 9-9 in league play and were
eventually elimanated from the playoffs by Villanova and Villanova
went on to the City final against St Annes. St Annes captured the
City and Swossa AAAA and went on to the Ofssa silver and only lost by a point.
Riverside tried Swossa AAA. General Amherst did a three peat at Ofssa AA winning
gold for an outstanding 3rd time.
The 2005 version of the Cardinals managed to secure a wild card birth in the Ofssa AAA
finals. With tough defense and peseverence they came away
with a Consolation Championship and a record of 4 wins
1 loss against Division AAA Champions and also bumped off
one seeded team along the way. Six seniors walked away with
a victory in their last game for the red - gray and white.

In 2003 we finished the season 35 wins and 5 losses. We won the Essex ,
U of Windsor and the Brennan Tournaments. We finished 2nd in
the Chatham Kent tournament.
In the playoffs we moved through the quarter finals with a win over Villanova 44-29.
Then edged out Herman 52-42. In the city final we fell short losing to St Anne's 34-43.
We had qualified for the Swossa final when we defeated Herman.
We came out on the short end of a 54-58 score in a shoot out with Chatham Kent.
The game went to the final seconds before being decided as we were ahead through the 2nd , 3rd and into the 4th quarter.
   In 2002 we had a great season finishing with a record of 34 wins 5 losses . We lost in the quarter finals at OFSAA AAA to London Medway. We were Swossa champs, Wecssaa champs,Chatham Jaycees Pink and White Tournament Champs, University of Windsor Tip Off Tournament Champs as well as
Essex Head Start Silver medalist. We enjoyed OFSSA AAA for the second straight year but were disappointed at not getting past the quarter finals but proud of our 5th place ranking.London Medway finished with the silver medal Kingston Holy Cross Crusaders won gold.
   In 2001 the girls earned a trip to Ottawa
for OFSSA AAA basketball. We finished in the
quarter finals losing to #1 ranked Sudbury
Lasalle. Lasalle won the bronze and Ottawa
Ashbury Colts won Gold and Ottawa St. Matthew Tigers finished with Silver.
It was a good experience for a young team.

That brought us again to the elite 8 matched against the Wossa Champs ( London )Medway Cowboys at 25-3.
This was the only team with less losses than Brennan.The first quarter closed with
Brennan down 8-11 with the ball not wanting to drop. Medway played tough defense against
the inside rotation and the ball started to drop more easily for them and at the half
found the Cards down 13-19.The starters found themselves down double didgits in the
third quarter but made a brief run to get within 9 but 2 turnovers and 2 threes by
Medway opened up a 15 point lead and the Cards finished the 3rd down 13 at 23-36.
The fourth quarter found the cards pressing to make up the difference but closed out 17
points down 31-48. At 26% shooting this was the poorest showing of the year by Brennan
due in part to Medway's stingy defense but also tight rims and balls that just wouldn't
drop at the right time for the Cardinals. Medway went on to defeat #1 Ashbury 38-29 but lost the Gold by 1 point
to Unranked Holy Cross of Kingston who managed to knock off the 6th seed, 3rd seed, 2nd seed and 5th seed on their way to the Championship.
95% of all seasons end in a loss. Before acknowledging our last game scorers.
I would like to say goodbye to our Cardinal Seniors. Jessie Plante 4 good years together.
Krista Banner 3 good years together.
Brittany Denboer 3 good years together.
Stephania Dipietro 3 good years together.
Roxanne Vilaneuava 3 good years together.
Katie Hamilton 2 good years together.
God Bless you guys it was a huge amount of fun.
