Camryn Hockley, Devan Andrusak and Melisa Ardanaz each found the back of the net for Delta, which held leads of 2-1 after 20 minutes and 3-1 going into the third period. Janaka Shahi made 25 saves.

The result avenged an earlier 3-1 defeat in round-robin action to the Manitoba opponent. PBA went 22-1-2 in league play while Delta was second with a 15-8-2 record.

Earlier Delta goals were scored on the power play by Logan Hamilton, Allison Jakeway and Lee.

The girls opened the championship with a 4-1 win over the Okanagan Hockey Academy.

The Wild roster also features Sienna Basi, Melody Pilchak, Jesse Kask, Makenna Bergen, Tristan Craig, Emma Killman, Kirra Montrose, Regan Elmer, Lainey Joyce, Jaylyn Morris, Lauren MaKay, Camryn Hockley, Sarah Hartle and Shea Elmer.
