Third place went to the Mannles, who included Claire Linn, Marina Ellison, Caitlin Evans, Zoey Berkey, Miranda Mann and Katrina Waldron.

In fourth were the Wildcats, whose CFHA players included Robin Fleming, Brittany Smith, Emma Dame, Sara Goodman and Kyla Toljander.

Made up entirely of current or former CFHA players were the fifth-place Valley Vixens: Stephanie Yeats, Hannah Craig, Beth Corish, Karey Fiege, Shylayne Davidson, Kelsey Goodman, Teresa Gregus, Alyssa Davidson, Kristie Sykes, Ali Andersen and Sumeet Aujla.

The local organizers of the tournament were praised by Field Hockey BC.
