On November 25th & 26th, the London Gold Medal Basketball club hosted a pre-Ontario Basketball League (OBL) season opener and the Midgets came out on top. The players swept their pool and worked hard to beat York South Silver Knights (65-45), the tournament hosts London Gold Medal (39-32) and Brantford CYO (46-41), earning them a spot in the championship final. Scoring 18 points in the last quarter of the finals brought the Spirits within shooting distance of the gold. Oakville Vytis took home tournament honours with only a 7 point lead over Belleville (34-27). The Midgets silver medal sets the bar high for the rest of the season as it represents a mere 10.5 hours  of training as a team and speaks volumes about the skill, determination and drive of the players.
