Then it was Consort against Castor in a co-ed learn to play game. Points started being counted with the 12:30 p.m. Castor Atom Cyclones vs. Delburne game, which the Cyclones won with a decisive 8-2 victory.

At 4:30 p.m the 3 Cs Coyotes girls played Okotoks with another win against the visitors, this time a 7-0 blowout.
