On the girls side, GDHS' varsity squad blanked Char-Lan, in Cornwall, to advance to the senior 'A' final versus host and top seed la Citadelle.

The junior girls final will feature Tagwi versus the winner of the semifinal currently underway.

Note: for junior boys and junior girls, the finalists will all advance to EOSSAA, regardless of the outcome of the games, as there are extra berths available to SDGAA. In the senior divisions, only winners will move on.
