Titans bring home bronze at U16 NCL Eastern Championships finals
Congratulation to U16 boys for an incredible year in NCL and probably one of the best games that spectators could see through NCL season at semifinals against DDO. After an incredible comeback from 6:10 in 4th quarter, Titans boys were able to tie the game with 10:10, but there was no luck in second round of shootouts. This year, U16 boys finished third in Eastern conference, right after Camo and DDO teams. Titans Milan Duhaime and Bogdan Djerkovic were named to All Star Team. Congratulations and GO TITANS!!!
Congratulations to John Conway!
John Conway, an ex-Titan, has graduated from University of Calgary in April 2015 with a Bachelor of Commerce and a concentration in energy management. He has taken a 4 course load in several semesters concurrently with the heavy demands of his 2 daily water-polo practices.
John was awarded overall top scorer in the 2015 Union of the Americas Cup and was the 2nd overall top scorer in the recent FINA Intercontinental Tournament qualifier for the World League.
John looks forward to participating in the upcoming 2015 July PanAm Games in Toronto and is hoping to qualify for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. John played in the last 2011 PanAm games in Guadalajara, Mexico where Canada got the silver medal.
John is also looking forward to his participation to the World Championships this summer in Kazan, Russia. John has played in two previous World Championships: Barcelona, Spain in 2013 and Shanghai, China in 2011.
Gold for senior Titans
On April 25/26 two Titans senior teams went to Montreal to compete in the Tiburon water polo tournament in the rec AA and A divisions. The teams were a coed mix of Titans, GGs and Ravens players (many of the GGs and Ravens are ex-Titans). The Titans AA team had many hard fought wins with close scores and managed to bring home Gold in the top division of the tournament with a score of 9-8 in the final. Andrew DiPerna (Raven, ex-Titans player and current Titans coach) was voted MVP by his team mates. The A team had some great moments but were struggling against a very physical style of play being allowed by the referees. Everyone had a great time socializing in Montreal Saturday night and we hope to make it back for the tournament once again next year. (Photo of AA team taken by Yew Lee).

16U NCL Eastern Conferences Updates: Games in Gatineau
NCL Weekly Notes: January 13 to 19, 2015....The other major event of the weekend was a 16U event in Gatineau held at the beautiful Gatineau Sports Centre. 10 games were played over Saturday and Sunday between the local Ottawa/Gatineau teams and the visitors from Montreal. The most exiting games of the weekend were no doubt played between the trio of 16U boys’ teams fighting for the conference lead, CAMO, Dollard, and the Ottawa Titans. Those teams combined have yet to lose a game to one of the other four teams in the division. The games between them are crucial in determining the overall standings, and they did not disappoint. The three games played between these teams resulted in two draws (Dollard 17- Titans 17, CAMO 10 – Titans 10), and a one goal victory (CAMO 12 – Titans 11). As only two of Dollard, CAMO, and Titans can qualify for the National Finals, the Eastern Finals in May seem sure to provide excellent drama.16U . Full NCL weekly notes.
Duhaime stands out with the Titans
The 16U Titans’ Milan Duhaime was a force to be reckoned with in Montreal. He scored 9 goals in the 17-17 tie with Dollard, another 6 in a 15-14 Titans win over CAMO, and added 5 more in his team’s final game rematch against Dollard. Duhaime’s 20 goals easily set the pace for the weekend and his 28 total goals in 5 regular season games make him the leading scorer in the 16U boys category. Full NCL weekly notes.
