In the Championship Game, the Castlegar Giants worked hard but were no match for the rep team the Cranbrook Kings.

Carter Gretchen was awarded team MVP for his strong efforts playing defense in the game. The players, coaches and parents are very proud of finishing second in a tournament which hosted many high level hockey teams.
