Assists went to Ali Bell with three, Roulston with two, Mueller, Grenestege, Roxanne VanDam and Kirby. In the semi final game, strong defensive play stalled a late push from another Waterloo team in which the Aces won 3-1. Lindsay Neeb, Smith and Mueller scored with Luckhart assisting twice and Hailey Doell and Hannah Bush each assisting once from the back end. The final game was a defensive struggle against Grand River as neither team created many scoring opportunities.
