The championship game was intense, with a score of 1-1 at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Emma Stephenson and Charley Kate Squillante led the offensive attack in the fourth quarter, scoring four more goals to finish the game 5-1. It was a great ending to a season with only nine goals scored against the Diamonds.
