The stage is set for this year’s Creator’s Cup championship game after Saturday’s semi-final matchups between the Niagara Lock Monsters and the Barrie Blizzard in the afternoon game, and the Ohsweken Demons versus Southwest Cyclops elimination game that evening at the ILA in Ohsweken.

The teams traded goals throughout the first half, which ended in a 5-5 tie.
The Demons gained slightly more momentum in the second half, enough to pull ahead of the Cyclops 11-8 in the third quarter and held on for the 12-10 final.
