After a dominant round robin, in which they won both games by a combined score of 35-5, the girls punched their ticket to the semifinals with a convincing 15-3 game against Toronto Beaches 2.

In the semifinal game the North Stars were matched up against a strong Hamilton team. After getting out to an early lead and playing excellent defence, the girls simply played aggressive smart lacrosse to move on to the finals with a 9-6 win.

Of note, was strong ball possession by the mid fielders, timely offence from almost all of the attackers and very strong goaltending by Payton McKenzie who bravely jumped in net for provincials after their only goalie was injured.
