Team Enman finished round robin with a 4-3 record, placing them in a 3-way tie for second. They won a tiebreaker game 6-4 over team Mooibroek, then followed it up with a 6-3 semi-final victory over team Purdy. The final saw team Enman facing off against the 6-1 round robin leaders, team Hahn. Scoring a deuce in the last end meant a 5-4 victory for team Enman and a provincial title.
Best of luck to teams Gray and Enman as they represent Ontario at the U18 National Championships in Moncton.
