On Tuesday afternoon, they were were locked in a battle with their crosstown rivals, Surrey Storm ‘01A.

Heading into the matchup against the Renegades, the Storm were 1-1, having opened the tournament Monday morning with a 5-0 loss to the Brampton Blazers, followed by a 16-2 win over Rivercity later in the day.

A second White Rock team, the Renegades 2000, were also 1-1 through the first day and a half. They lost Monday to the Oakville Angels – despite outhitting their Ontario foes – but rebounded Tuesday with a 7-6 win over the Richmond Islanders 2000.

By mid-afternoon Tuesday, the Delta Heat sit atop the standings with a perfect 3-0 record.
