The Bulldogs lost their third round-robin game against the Valley Wild. MacDonald got injured and forward Kerilyn Kennedy went in nets after the first period to finish the game. Katelyn Dunn of New Glasgow scored an unassisted goal for the Bulldogs, and the game ended with an 8-1 score. Kennedy was named player of the game for volunteering to strap on the pads.
The Bulldogs finished in fourth place and played the first-place Valley Wild in the crossover game. Due to MacDonald’s injury, forward Casey Murphy played the netminder position, earning her the player of the game award. The team showed character and class against the Valley team despite a 5-0 loss.
