To open the round robin, the Wildcats faced a familiar foe in the Flamborough Fire. Sammi Vlasman came out firing on both sides of the ball, scoring 8-points and picking up 9-rebounds, but the Chatham-Kent girls would fall 41-33. Avia Stone, Jessica Jordan, and Carol Tran each had 5-points in the loss.

In a must win second game, Chatham-Kent found their stride, edging a tough Niagara Red Raiders team 48-44. Jordan paced the Wildcats with 10-points, while Emily Kirkpatrick had 9, and Vlasman had 8.

Facing the Nepean Blue Devils in their third game of the tournament, and second game of the day, the Chatham-Kent Wildcats ran out of gas, falling 45-31 to Nepean, sending the Wildcats to the bronze medal game. Avia Stone led the way with 12-points, while Jordan continued her strong tournament picking up 9-points.

In the bronze medal game, the Wildcats held the Kingston Impact at bay and walked off with a 41-25 victory, and bronze medals. Emily Kirkpatrick scored 10-points, while Tran and Jordan each had 6 in the win.
