Each skater recorded either a goal or an assist over the course of the tournament.

Kenzie Baker led the charge offensively with 10 goals and seven assists in the five contests. Mariah Dickey contributed seven goals and four assists, while Nya Barber-Castro tallied eight goals and two assists.

It suffered its lone loss of the tournament on Saturday morning, falling 11-6 to the Ice Dogs. Flathead rebounded later Saturday, winning two games — 7-4 over Missoula and 11-5 versus the Wild — to remain in championship contention.
