“We left it all out there today and earned this win. I’m proud of this group and what we’ve been able to accomplish. We didn’t even know if we would win our province and here we are now. We’ve got one more tomorrow and we’re not done yet.”

- Vienna Rubin (Fraser Valley Rush) on the shootout victory on Thursday

“This is the best hockey we’ve played all season. We came here to compete and win. The competition here is tough, but we need to keep doing what we have been doing to be successful.”

- Sadie Hotles (Durham West Lightning) on the Lightning mindset heading into Friday 

“To get the win here tonight feels great. We’ve been working hard but haven’t been rewarded. To beat our rivals from Saskatchewan makes it even sweeter. The pressure is on us now heading into the last day. I think this team is built for this moment and I know we will push forward.”

- Ryann Perrett (Notre Dame Hounds) on Hounds’ first regulation victory
