The Whitby U13 Boys travelled to Kingston on July 23/24 to participate in the Ambassador Cup. Through the scorching heat they went undefeated in Division 1 Round Robin play vs Brantford, West Ottawa, Ottawa Gloucester and Northumberland. They went head to head against Markham in the semi finals and won an impressive 3-1 match! The final game was their fourth game of the day, in 30+ degree temps vs Waterloo.
