2017 Goalball Junior Nationals Update 

Ontario Men and Women Capture Gold at the Junior Goalball Championships


          It was double gold medals for the Ontario Goalball teams at the 2017 Junior National Goalball Championships (Under 19). The tournament featured teams from British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec and Nova Scotia and was held at the W. Ross Macdonald School in Brantford, Ontario.


          Team Ontario's Junior Men's team defeated Nova Scotia 9-3 in the finals – they stayed consistent throughout the tournament while really saving their best game for last! Unfortunately, Ontario was beaten twice by Nova Scotia in the round-robin portion of the tournament. Ottawa’s Brice Parker led Ontario with 5 goals in the finals and Nathan Taylor added a hat trick. Nader Ibrahim chipped in with a single goal. In the semi-finals, Ontario beat Quebec/BC  13-3. Brice Parker scored 6 goals, Nader Ibrahim 5 and Nathan Taylor had 2. Parker and Taylor are both members of the National Junior Goalball Team. 

         The Ontario Women’s team went undefeated throughout the tournament. In 5 games, they scored 61 goals while allowing only 15 against. In the semi-finals, Emma Reinke’s 9 goals proved to be the difference as Ontario defeated Nova Scotia 13-3. Tessa Rankin and Gen Hart added 2 goals apiece. In the Finals, Ontario defeated Alberta 13-3. Emma Reinke scored 12 goals and Justice Bushey added a single goal.


          Emma Reinke (Ontario), Gen Hart (Ontario), Meaghan Hargraves (Alberta), Nathan Taylor (Ontario), Brice Parker (Ontario) and Mason Smith (Nova Scotia) were named to the All-Tournament Team.


Team Ontario’s Mens and Womens teams were coached by Bob Mannen and Jen McMillan (and former Paralympian Annette Carmen), respectively.
