The Tri Pen Bantam Female AAA team defeated Central in the Provincial Championship game by a score of 4-3.  The game needed overtime to decide the champion, and Emma Russell buried the OT winner to send Tri Pen to the Atlantic Bantam AAA Invitational.

Tri Pen will now join the Eastern Female Bantam (Host) as representatives of Newfoundland and Labrador at the AAA Female Bantam Atlantics, which is set to take place in Mount Pearl – April 19-21, 2013.   The tournament will feature the Bantam Champion from each of the Atlantic Provinces.
