The five points earned ODSS a second-place pool finish and a berth in the quarter-

Not to be intimidated by their opponents’ high seeding, ODSS came from behind to win 4-3, scoring four unanswered goals in the second and third periods, to earn their place in the semifinal against the eventual OFSAA champions, St. Michael’s College. After losing the semi-final to St. Michael’s, the Bears proved their resilience and determination by coming out strong and defeating St. Elizabeth by a score of 4-1 in the bronze medal game. In addition to the bronze medal, ODSS finished the tournament with the top two point getters – Zachary Banks (11 pts) and Trevor Nevidomskis (10 pts) - with Travis Brown (9 pts) finishing tied for fourth.
