Avery Figliomeni scored her second goal of the game, in overtime, lifting the Schreiber North Shore Stars past the Timmins Blue Heron Flyers 2-1 in the Midget B final. Mariah Gaudet answered with the only goal of the game for Timmins.

Claudine Tubin found the back of the net no less than five times, leading the Sudbury Lady Wolves to a 7-3 win over the Guelph Jr. Gryphons in the final of the Novice B grouping.

Mackenzie Weber and Katie Pilotte rounded out the scoring for the winners, with Myriam Parnell accounting for all of the offence for Guelph, recording a hat trick.

The Temiskaming Shores Scotiabank Puckhounds captured the Atom C title with a 2-1 win over the Timmins Pro Pipe Wildcats. Vanessa Paterson and Shannon O'Reilly scored for the Puckhounds, with Jasmine Groleau getting Timmins on the board.

Breanna Hodkinson provided the offensive heroics with a three-goal effort as the Sault Ste. Marie Sharks blanked the Sault Ste. Marie Lions 3-0 in the Peewee Houseleague championship affair.

Still with the Highway 17 West contingent, the Thessalon Lions returned home a happy crew, outscoring the Hearst Ice Cats 3-1 in the Midget C final. Goals from Kaitlyn Murray, Rebecca Julien and Megan Turcotte were more than enough to offset the a solo tally from Kayla Laurin of the Ice Cats.

Sudbury teams thrived in remaining houseleague divisions, with the Sudbury Lady Predators setting the tone in the Atom age category. A balanced attack would see Krista Korzeniecki, Jordan Malo, Isabel Maki and Zoe Smith all hit the scoresheet as the Predators posted a 4-0 shutout over the Sault Ste. Marie McDonalds Maple Leafs.

Kyla Bruni enjoyed a two-goal effort, with singles coming from Taiya Parry and Ashlyn Werbiski as the Sudbury Lady Lightning bantams bounced the Sudbury Ice Pirates 4-0.

In Novice Houseleague action, Billy-Ann Thibodeau scored three times, leading the Hearst Ice Cats past the Temiskaming Shores Puckhounds 4-2.

Mia Silva chipped in with the remaining goal for Hearst, while Kyra Larocque countered with both markers for the Temiskaming girls.

And in the final game of the day at the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, the Sudbury Bristol Machine Leafs proved to be too much for Sudbury U-Floor-Me, racking up a 4-0 triumph.

Laura Eddy, Natasha Mayer, Haley Leblanc and Emily Pasivirta all found their way on to the scoresheet for the Leafs.
