With a superior record and a win over the Hot Shots earlier in the tournament, the Injectors were crowned winners.
It was a similar tale in the under-15s mixed final as the Stars and the Boarders played out an entertaining 6-6 draw in a seesawing affair.
The honours went to the Stars due to their superior ladder position during the competition.
The Hot Shots capped off an undefeated tournament in the open women's with an enthralling 2-1 over the Injectors which left both teams exhausted post-match.
The Hot Shots reigned supreme in the under-18s mixed play-off as they pipped the Stars late in the piece to secure bragging rights with a 4-3 win.
The under-13s mixed was a clear cut affair as the Boarders ran riot in an impressive attacking performance to win 8-4 over the Hot Shots.
