The B Event final featured the Port rink taking on the Yamamoto rink in one of the closer games of the finals, with the Port rink claiming the victory by a final score of 7-6.

The C Event final came down to the Rona rink and the Scott rink. The Scott Rink proved to be too much for the Rona squad as they took the C Event with a 9-2 victory in the final.

The D Event championship between the Rosario rink and the Bernhardt rink came down to the final stone. The Bernhardt rink was down by three with one counting and one just outside of counting, but the last stone wasn’t able to make the necessary takeout and the Rosario rink took the game by a final score of 10-8.
