BCA1 at Markham Starsfest

Congratulations to the girls of BCA1 on their fantastic effort and play during the recent Markham Starsfest tourney. They went all the way to the finals after 5 wins in a row. They lost a heartbreaker in the final, with a 1-0 loss on a PPG scored in the last minute of the game. Great job on bringing home the silver and representing the Wildcats so very well!! #clawsout
