What a Season, What a Team!
First, U15 Boys enter Top OBLX League
After progressing up many divisions year after year, the 2019 edition of our 2004 FORCE rep boys made it to the elite Ontario Basketball League (OBL) division – “OBLX”. The “can we compete” question ended with a “this team can’t be beat” statement finish! The season unfolded as posted on the Ontario Basketball website here.
Then, the FORCE Finish as League Champs
Closing out the season with a surge, the boys captured the 3rd seed with impressive team play. The finals took place this Saturday May 4 with a semi final elimination taking place before advancing to the final. Here, the FORCE knocked off the # 2 seed (DC United) and then blew past the top seed (SBA Scarborough).
All boys pitched in and it was truly a team effort. Special congratulations to Nathan Bureau who also earned OBLX MVP with some outstanding performances! Of course, special thanks to Coach Chris Denley and his tireless efforts and assistant Carm Maesano.
Each of the boys took pictures with family on hand as well, and we can’t forget their unwavering support for all the boys this season. A huge shout out to our entire U15 FORCE family, including Mary Maesano as Manager!
As OBLX champions, our U15 boys have earned the #1 seed going into the OBA finals where they’ll play in Scarborough May 24-26. Let’s goooooo and come cheer these boys on!
