Their second game ended in a 5-0 win over Mission Terminators. Outstanding play by Jessie Olfert, Adra Greig, Melanie Girard and Allana Spooner in the midfield led the team. Lauren Antonovitch, Bryanne Francisco, Shannon Parker, Schuder, and Levesque netted goals. A 4-1 win over Kamloops put the Pinnacles into the finals on goals from Schuder with two and single tallies by Levesque and Chyzzy. Ellen Rutherford had a great game forcing numerous turnovers. The Pinnacles met their league rivals from Shuswap and dominated with a 4-0 win. Goal scorers were Schuder, Parker, Antonovitch and Spooner. Nikita Afonso had a great tournament collecting three shutouts and allowing only one goal. Game MVPs were handed out to Francisco, Greig, and Levesque with two.
