In the Bronze medal game Guelph faced the Queens Golden Gaels, who lost the previous night to Toronto 2-1 in the other semi-final game. Guelph came out slow in the first part of the period, and found themselves down 2-0 after eight minutes of the first period. In the latter part of the first, Guelph tied the score with goals from Elaine Dumas (Waterloo, ON) and with her first career OUA goal, Cassie Wilson (Kemptville, ON). The game remained tied through the second period, and well into the third period. With 2:13 left in the third, Brittany Roberts scored to give Guelph a 3-2 lead which would be the final score. Picking up assists were Elysia Desmier with three, Dumas with two and Roberts with one. Aleisha Lusk stopped 26 shots for the victory. Melissa John stopped 25 shots for Queens. Game star for Guelph was Elaine Dumas.
Guelph finished the season with a combined 11-9-6-1 record (regular and playoff season)
