Lumby opened with a 9-2 win over the Valemount Wildcats. Zachary Young supplied 2+1, while Linden Catt earned 1+3 and other goals came from  Mia Maltman, Ryder Quibell and Quintin O’Neill.

Catt and Krause each posted 3+2 as the Stars ambushed Abbotsford 8-0 Saturday morning. Romailler and Quibell added singles, while Young had two assists.

Catt and Krause again produced 3+2 as Lumby shut down the Kamloops Spartans 8-0. Young and Romailler provided singles, while some amazing assists were recorded by Kaleb Pachal, Cameron Smithson and Domenik Porteous.

In the semifinals, Parker Stadnyk registered his third shutout of the tournament as the Stars grounded Kamloops #8 4-0.
