The other pool featured DCS, École Victor Brodeur and North Island Secondary. Brodeur beat DCS 5-0 and NISS 1-0, and NISS defeated DCS 5-1.

The semifinals on Tuesday saw Brodeur get past QMS 1-0 in overtime, while GNS beat NISS 3-0. GNS then defeated Brodeur 4-0 in the gold-medal game, while NISS topped QMS 3-0 for bronze, and St. Margaret’s edged DCS 4-3 for fifth place.
