The AJHL-champion Brooks Bandits erased a 4-2 deficit and battled back for a 6-4 victory over the host Estevan Bruins Wednesday evening to conclude round robin play at the Junior A Western Canada Cup.

With the win, the Bandits finished the round robin at 4-0 and advance to Saturday night's 1-2 Playoff Game against the BCHL-champion West Kelowna Warriors (7:00 pm).  The Bruins concluded the round robin at 0-4 and will not play on the weekend at Affinity Place.

In a playoff format borrowed from curling, Saturday afternoon's 3-4 Playoff Game features the MJHL-champion Portage Terriers against the SJHL-champion Melfort Mustangs.  Faceoff is at 2:00 pm.

The winner of the 1-2 Playoff earns a berth in the 2016 Royal Bank Cup in Lloydminster while the loser goes to Sunday's final against the winner of the 3-4 Playoff.  The winner of that game will earn the second berth into the RBC.

We broadcast Thursday's SportsCage live on 620 CKRM from Estevan and it was a real treat as we were joined by SJHL President Bill Chow, Clark Munro of the Estevan Bruins, NHL great Glenn "Chico" Resch and former Bruins Coach & GM Nick Sereggela.

Thank you Estevan for hosting us!  It's been a fabulous event.
