Both games were hard fought and the Aces had their chances but could not find the back of the net.  Saturday, Stratford needed a win to guarentee a place to the medal games against LLFHL Toronto East division North York. In the back and forth game there were many chances at both ends of the ice. At 2:41 of the 3rd period Laura Skinner found the back of the net which proved to be the game winner Assisting on the goal were Nicole Crowley and Leah Matthews.  Megan Jesse earned her second shutout of the tournament with superb goaltending.  Saturday night Stoney Creek again was the opponent for the semi-finals.

The Aces had many chances including hitting the post twice but were not able to get the equalizer. Stoney Creek scored again on an empty net with ½  second left in the game to make it 2-0.  With Sunday’s game the Aces were going to win the game with their never quit attitude and determination, and attacked the Canadettes all game long.
