Devon scored with 15 minutes left on a penalty then quickly added another goal to make it 3-2. Rushton Davis-Hall scored with 5 minutes left to ensure the victory.

Game two on Saturday was a 3-0 win for Stettler over Whitecourt. The Stettler defensive line of Mark Molchanko, Brandan Hoskins, Lucas Smith, and Mike Kossowan was solid. Goals came from Rushton Davis-Hall (2) and Cody Hoskins.

With a 2-0 record, Stettler advanced to the gold medal game against Three Hills. In a fabulous game, Stettler came up on the short end of a 1-0 score.
