Playing as the North Island Wild after bolstering the roster with three players from Courtenay, the team cruised unbeaten through its bracket before topping Mugsy’s Mavericks 5-2 in the division final.

The squad also posted wins of 5-2 over the Delta Buzz, 7-2 over Twisted Sisters and 7-2 over Matalia.

Lacey Mortensen was the winning goalie in each game. Emily Murray was the team’s top scorer with eight goals and an assist. Megan Cairncross and Tanna Wesner scored three goals each and Lisa Klatt and Rose Marra each scored twice.

Top playmakers were Rosie Dugas and Marra with four assists each, while Cairncross, Paula Klatt, Darcie Klatt and Angela Krawietz had three helpers each.

Marnie Ordano, Marnie Godmaire and Carmen Walsh also tallied at least two points each in the tourney.
