Arnprior, ON - Team Quebec captured the coveted Abby Hoffman Cup (Gold Medal) at the 2002 Esso Women's National Hockey Championship with a 1-0 victory over Team Ontario (Beatrice Aeros). The game was played in front of a jam-packed crowd of 2,817 people at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior, Ontario.

Quebec goaltender Kim St-Pierre's fourth shutout of the championship led Quebec to their eighth Esso Women's National Hockey Championship crown. St-Pierre stopped 43 shots for the gold medal victory.

Esso Nationals Most Sportsmanlike Player, Lisa Marie Breton of Team Quebec, scored the game's only goal at the 10:33 mark of the second period.

Team Canada gold medallists Lori Dupuis (2 goals), Jayna Hefford (2 goals) and Vicky Sunohara (2 assists) each had two points in the victory. Marie-France Morin recorded the win for the hosts, stopping 24 of 25 shots.
