The Trail squad went undefeated through the tournament, beating Castlegar on Friday afternoon 5-1 to kick off the weekend. They trounced Palouse, Wash. 9-0 in the evening and followed that up with a 7-0 victory over Spokane. A hard fought 6-5 win against Kelowna on Saturday clinched a bye to the finals where they played Castlegar.
