A group of 24 teams invaded Brockville rinks on Jan. 24 to 26.
The Selects blew past their competition with ease, earning three consecutive wins and shutouts.
Their undefeated streak continued with a 1-0 victory in the semi-finals against familiar competitors, the North Glengarry-Stormont Braves, adding another shutout to the pile.
