Well we have a major problem in the LOSSA senior girls basketball playoffs. My daughter plays for the GL Roberts lakers team who went undefeated this season but were disqualified from the playoffs due to a forfeit when the game they were hosting had its time changed at 12:35 pm last Thursady from 3:45 pm by email instead of a phone call. The coach from Pereyma Patriots contacted the convenor from Lossa after the schedule had been released and confirmed by all teams the day before. The Lossa rules state that any time change has to be agreed upn by both teams and the league assignor. However the GL Roberts coach was not even contacted as to the time change. The girls then forfeited the game because they were not ready to play as most of the girls had classes they couldn't miss hence the 3:45 start time. When the game was forfeited the coach immediately protested. The protest meeting was then held Tuesday Nov.15 but was denied. Then after a bunch of emails went to Lossa and Ofsaa and the media another meeting was held this morning but again they were denied. The convenor even told Lossa that he made a bad ruling and that by rights the game should be played but Lossa would not play it. Then this afternoon the Girls From GL Roberts themselves went to Father Leo Austin in Whitby to talk to the Lossa president about the situation and he would not even talk to the team as he said it was over with and it was final. Well since the CHEX TV in Oshawa wants to interview the team as well does Oshawa This Week. Then a phone call came to my wife who has been spearheading this fight was called by the Fan 590 to be on thier Sunday morning show to talk about this mess. They also want to talk to the GL Roberts coach. CityTv is also possibly going to do a story about this as well. When our girls Played Pereyma in regular season play we beat them 36-12 my daughter the shooting guard scored 24 our points. They then went on to beat Denis O'connor from Ajax 47-22 in the final regular season game. They were so dominate in the second half that they outscored Dennis O'conor 31-3 in the second half. Now is it fair that the best team in AA Lossa basketball should not be able to represent Lossa at Ofsaa? Because of the screw up by the convenore the girls are being penalized. Should we stand for this? if not Everyone Contact the Lossa and Ofsaa representatives.
