The women, led by goaltender Mackaylen Bickle, made 14 saves on route to a 3-1 win. Haley Giles opened the scoring for the Excalibur, while Kaitlyn Steffler did what she does best, and booted home both the game winner and an insurance marker! Giles also with an assist.
The men, led by captain Aaron Chia, had 3 goals in the Excalibur's 5-0 win! Mitch LeClair made 8 saves for the shutout, while Elliot Exton and David Ogbole scored singles, and Riley Patrick with 2 assists.
