U19 Tier 1
Flip flop back at the top following the results from Waterloo. The Ghosts won the tournament, and also beat previous #1 Oakville (2-1) in the semi-final game Sunday, before beating Brampton (M) in the final game. No change to Windsor’s position, we keep them at three – the Wildcats were very impressive at a US event this weekend in Ohio. Brampton (M) who has now made the medal round each of the first four weeks, stays in the #4 spot, Guelph remains at the #5. Guelph was just on the outside of the medal games in Waterloo (losing out on RA tiebreaker).
U19 Tier 2
LaSalle wasn’t in action this past week on the Ontario side, so with no resume to review we keep them in the #1 spot. The Athletics are playing in the Capital City Shootout this weekend in Columbus, OH along with several other teams from Ontario at (14U, 16U & 18U). Waterloo keeps the #2 spot narrowly based on pedigree vs results, Ghosts did finish 2nd this weekend, but they perhaps didn’t dominate like many felt they should. Big mover is Vaughan this week, the Vikings who elected to try some Tier 1 events in early May, came back to the T2 side this weekend in Waterloo and ran the table with a perfect 5-0-0 record. Kitchener keeps the #4 spot, and Ontario Yankees keep the #5. We have also confirmed that there will be a U19 qualifier event this summer to separate teams into A and B provincial events.
U16 Tier 1
As of the writing, the Vaughan Vikings are still in the Memorial Day Madness play-off rounds. The Vikings are once again holding their own in an elite event and therefore there is no need to change their spot as the #1. Windsor keeps the #2, based on their Gold showing at the Queen of Diamond’s. UTM 2K2, is now at the #3 spot following their Gold Medal win this past weekend in Waterloo. As with every U16 T1 event this summer the competition again was strong from top to bottom, UTM only allowed 5-runs against over the 5-game run to the championship. Waterloo placed 2nd at their home event, they now sit as the #4 seed. The team has pitching depth, and can hit the ball (especially the middle of the lineup). Mississauga North keeps the #5 spot.
U16 Tier 2
The Oakville Angels took a break this week, thus nobody had a chance to de-throne them from the leading spot, so Angels remain at #1. Vaughan Vikings 03’ keeps the #2 spot, and we keep Palmerston in the #3. A couple of big movers on the top-10 list come in next with Kingston Kobras now at the #4 following their Gold win in Port Perry, and the London Lightning, winners in Waterloo now sit at #5. Springfield 03 also shoots up the ranks, taking the London team to ITB in the medal game Sunday.
Brampton Blazers remain in the first spot again this week, but there is yet again considerable change behind them as the Novice division starts to sort itself out. The Toronto Lady Mets are now the #2 ranked team, and we have the gold medal winners from Waterloo – Chatham Golden Eagles all the way up to the #3 spot. A Novice follower two weeks back, told us we had completely missed the boat with Chatham, and it looks like that Novice fan nailed it! Kitchener Klassics Black fall two spots, but looked like they will be a tough out for anyone, only losing to Chatham twice this past weekend (final game was a walk-off winner). Oakville 04’ won Gold in Halton, and they now sit #5.
