“We have carried a ton of energy with us all season, and we brought it here again today. It was a long journey to get here, but to open this tournament with a victory is huge and gets the experience off on the right foot. It felt nice to score today, but the win is more important.”

- Jessica Pellerin (Durham West Lightning) on her two-goal performance and a tournament-opening victory.

“The first period was a bit scrambly for sure, but we’ve been practicing hard for the last three weeks and knew this was going to be a challenge. We had some nerves late, but to get this win in front of all our family and friends is a great start to the week.”

- Kaitlyn Gilroy (Notre Dame Hounds) on returning to game action after a long layoff.

“This was a heavy game tonight. Everyone was pulling in the right direction, worked well together, and picked up the win. This was a great way to start off this tournament.”

- Katie Leroux (Fraser Valley Rush) on a hard-fought victory over Richelieu.
