In the sixth-grade division, the Eagles held Mandaree to 9 points in cruising to the opening win 36-9. The Eagles had balanced scoring throughout in gaining the easy victory.

Cedar Wolf and Chelsea Quick Bear each scored 8 points, followed by Kamryn Deegan and Shayna Salter, each chipping in 6 points. Cheyenne Fox, Mia Wilkinson and Haley Pettersen also added 4, 2 and 2 respectively in the win.

Salter and Quick Bear were the only two New Town players to score in the title tilt, but it was enough to take the win, 16-11 over Parshall. Each player scored 8 points down the stretch.

In the third-place game it was Watford City outlasting Mandaree.
