The Dukes are 1-1-1, their victory a 3-2 overtime decision Monday over Steinbach (0-1-2), the Manitoba-Saskatchewan champions.

The other three teams at the event, Wenatchee (3-0-0), Chilliwack (2-0-1) and Ottawa Jr. Senators (2-0-2), have all qualified for the semifinals.
Wenatchee, from Washington state, won the B.C./Alberta championship. Ottawa is representing eastern Canada and the Dukes central Canada.
