Rebecca Jacobson's second-half goal broke a scoreless tie against Tigers after Synclaire Hamilton dribbled half the length of the field to set up the winner. In the victory over Anacondas, Lacey Cook scored the lone goal off an assist from Madison Cook.

Green Gators received goals from Katie Courville and Jacobson in the third-place game, while Madison Cook added another assist on a great crossing pass to set up the first goal.
