The Golden Jets U19 boys lost 12-10 to the Calgary Torpedoes in the bronze medal match at the recently concluded Canadian National Championships. David Rapoport led the way with five goals, Stefan Mitic added a hat trick and Luka Pejanovic notched the other tally.
The Jets U19 team was in its second straight Final Four National Championship and had an improved performance against Calgary which dominated the Jets last year.
Rapoport, Mitic and goalie Andrei Velasevic have a busy summer ahead as they will be representing Canada at the World Student Games in Taipei, Taiwan in August (more info to follow).
Congratulations to coach Predrag and the entire team!
The Golden Jets U19 boys are in Calgary for the Canadian National Championships Final Four the result of a surprising move from 6th place to 2nd place at the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The Jets scored upset victories over DDO (quarter finals) and Ottawa Titans (semi-finals) to secure the Nationals berth.
The Jets faced B.C. Storm last night in the national semi-final.
This is the second year in a row the U19s qualified for the Final Four. Congratulations to Predrag and all the players!
The Golden Jets U14 boys under the direction of Mohamed Rezk finished 5th at the recently concluded Ontario Provincial Championships.
The Jets started out nervously losing a close match to Hamilton 9-8. The heartbreak showed in the next match which saw the Jets fall 16-11. But the team picked up on the experiences and came back to win its final two games against Capital Wave of Ottawa (11-5) and Kitchener-Waterloo (11-9).
The team was made up almost exclusively of players with a year or less of water polo experience.
Congratulations to all the players and Moh for a job well done!
