Two minutes into the second half freshman Jessica Burma beat couple of defenders and made a brilliant pass to Emily Nicholson who's cross was first timed by Jolene Nagy into the back of the net to open the scoring, Nagy would go onto score three more goals in the 60th, 64th and 74th minute of play for a 4-0 final, center mids Jess Burma and Jess Weninger both from Kelowna were dominating along with wingers Caity Genereaux and Emily Nicholson.
