PLAYOFFS SET AT 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.
