A total of 33 teams from across Saskatchewan, and even a couple from outside of the provincial borders, were in the city on the weekend for the 14th annual Prince Albert Foxes female hockey tournament. Games were held at most of the indoor community club facilities in the city in addition to a number of matches that were played at the Kinsmen Arena. Competitions were held in five divisions: novice, atom, pee wee, bantam/midget and Midget AA. Prince Albert had at least one club entered in each division with all local teams competing hard and enjoying the camaraderie brought on by the hundreds of visitors that came for the event. In the novice division, the Orange Foxes were 3-1-0 in a round-robin format while the White Foxes had a tie and three losses in their four contests. The atom division also featured five teams with Prince Albert and Humboldt meeting in the final game. After going 3-1-0 in the round-robin, including a 5-0 loss to the Humboldt Fillies, Prince Albert took those same Fillies to overtime in the championship final before eventually losing 1-0. The pee wee division had three pools of three teams each with Prince Albert going winless in its two preliminary contests. Prince Albert then won both of its games against other third-place squads from the other pools as they got past the Parkland Canucks and Nipawin Hawks in their final match-ups. A similar set-up occurred in the bantam/midget group with Prince Albert once again going winless in its preliminary contests. After falling 3-1 to the Saskatoon Comet Tornadoes and 4-2 to Sherwood Park, Prince Albert then faced Edam and the Saskatoon Comet Crusaders in third-place contests, but results were unavailable. The Prince Albert entry in the Midget AA division had three losses and a tie to finish out of the playoffs with Saskatoon and Regina meeting for the gold medal while the Prairie Storm and Lloydminster squared off in the bronze-medal match. Results of those games were also unavailable.
