Langley went 4-0 during pool play and lost twice in the playoff round to the eventual provincial champs, the Richmond Islanders, and the silver medallist Surrey Storm.
The team finished the tournament 8-2.

The team is lead by Head Coach Kim Payne and Assistant Coaches Charles Dickens and Don Smith.
