Day one for the tournament started with 3 individual team games in the morning, a lunch break, and then 3 more individual team games in the afternoon.

Day two was more challenging for the Webber Women. The scores were not high and the conditions caused the women and Coach Randy Stoughton to change their plan of action. At the end of the 20 baker match games, the Webber Women were seeded 1st for the top 4 teams of best two out of three baker semi-finals matches. The women bowled two baker games against Spring Hill Women. Many great shots were thrown, but in the end, the Webber Women lost the best two out of three match against Spring Hill to be eliminated from the tournament. Even though this is not how the team wanted to end the tournament, the women stayed together and worked hard on each shot during semi-finals.
