MVP for the bantams was Paige Bell, while the workhorse winner was Karla Barteski.

The midget team went 3-0 during the round-robin against  Langley, Burnaby and New West 2.

In the crossover game, the team was involved in a fast-paced game that went back and forth and was tied 1-1 after regular play.  Near the end of an overtime period, PoCo scored for a 2-1 win.

During the bronze-medal game, the Burrard’s dispatched New West 2 with a 5-2 win.

MVP was Megan Kinna, while Megan Stewart was named workhorse for the midget team.

The juniors went 2-0 during round-robin play, with wins against PoCo and Port Moody.
