The Vixens opened by falling 4-0 to eventual tournament champion Dawson Creek with Embleton going the distance in net for Game MVP.

The Caliber Sports crew lost 1-0 to Kamloops Saturday morning with Embleton again earning MVP.

Vernon then bowed 4-3 to Revelstoke with Martin taking an outlet pass from defenceman Cassie Bosworth for the first goal. Revelstoke answered back with a breakaway goal in the first period.

The Vixens went ahead 40 seconds into in the second stanza when Michaela Case converted from Adrianne Dewhurst off-face in the offensive zone. Revelstoke levelled the score with three minutes left in the second frame.

Revelstoke counted two goals in 10 minutes to take the lead in the third period, converting once on a power play. MVP Adrian Dewhurst banged in some rebounds from Cheryl Meir and Edeen Yamada to pull Vernon within a goal.

Hayley Silcocks, Bernie Dwan, Angela Boulduc and Katelyn Holland were the other Vernon players in the Vixen lineup.
