The Wissahickon Boys led by a goal at half and stretched their lead to 3, but Wilson came back to tie the match 8-8. The Trojans scored the next two goals for a 10-8 lead. Wilson scored once more for a final 10-9 victory for the Trojans. Goals in the champioship game were scored by Greg Brocato, Jake Behring, Jeff Beyer and Peter Butler.
The Wissahickon Boys B team placed 3rd in the B bracket. After losing to North Allegheny, the Boys were matched up against Wilson B for the 3rd place game. They set the stage for the A Team by also defeating Wilson, pulling off a 12-11 victory.
