In their next game, the team emerged with a 6-5 victory over Guelph in a back and forth affair where the lead changed hands several times.

In their next match, they found themselves tied with London at 3 goals a piece early in the final frame before netting 6 unanswered goals for a 9-3 victory. After dropping a 4-2 decision to Forest they put together a much needed 6-3 win over Whitby in their final round robin game to secure a spot in the semi-finals. The semi-final was a rematch with Whitby where they emerged with a 4-3 victory and a spot in the final against Ottawa. In the final the Lightning took an early 1-0 lead before falling behind 2-1 and 3-2.
