For the championship game it would be the Falcons against the Dragons.  The Falcons had not lost a single game in the tournament, and they were fresh.  The last time they had been on the court it was to face the Dragons hours earlier.  The Dragons had played two of their games in between, making this their 4th game in a row.

"We have four returning seniors from previous years, and some played last year at the Junior level," said host team Crowsnest Pass Pandas Senior Head Coach Rhonda Jackson.  "I feel that with the skills that we have, as a senior team, we've done extremely well.  We've brought the other girls along and they fit in quite nicely.  It's good to see.  The comments were positive about the tournament itself."
