Broncos tried hard to come back being down 4-3 but Everett scored 2 EMPTY NET GOALS to sew it up. I think the Broncos will win it at home now as they have 2 chances if needed, to do it in their own Barn. Go Swift Go.

Win it at home Sunday or Monday (if necessary) Swift Current! Saskatchewan is behind you to win the whole thing.
