Thornton, Richards and Snyder led the Highlanders offensively, while Enzo Ruscitto, Tulenko and Moore, the team's starting goaltender, stood out on defense.
Leydig was assisted by Jack Halley and Matt Unger.
Baldwin was joined at the tournament by Shaler, University School, Bethel Park, Peters Township, Moon, Gateway and Chartiers Valley.
The Highlanders ended up 4-0-1 overall.
