Giordano de Paolis (Grade 12) scored three and Tarnvir Bhandal (Grade 11) scored the other two against Port Hardy.

Against North Island the Sabres got goals two more goals from Bhandal, two from Sahail Virk (Grade 10)  one each from de Paolis and Leo Falzon (Grade 12).

Goalkeepers Sheldon Donaldson (Grade 12) and James Saville (Grade 11) posted the shutouts.
