Wranglers looking to put icing on the cake

100 Mile House lads in Keystone Cup final today (April 17) at 1:30 MST

The 100 Mile House Wranglers face off against AGI Insurance Quakers for the Keystone Cup title in Co-operators Centre in Regina, Sask. today (April 17) at 1:30 p.m. MST.

The winner of this game will have the glory of being the Western Canada Junior B Champions.

The two teams faced off last night (April 16) in a mean-nothing game because the Quakers (5-0) and Wranglers (3-2) in the tourney were destined to meet each other in the championship final.

The Quakers won the last game of the round robin 6-4 in a penalty-filled affair.

Ryan Friesen open the scoring at 15:43 with an unassisted power-play marker, but the Quakers tied it up three minutes later.

Wranglers captain Stephen Egan (Alex Hanson) made it 2-1 at 9:12, but the Quakers came back with two unanswered goals for the 3-2 lead going into the first intermission.

Justin Bond (Tavis Roch) knotted the score at three with a power-play marker at 10:58 of the second.

Again, the Saskatchewan squad scored two power-play goals to lead 5-3 going

into the third period.

The Quakers open up at 6-3 lead early in the third, and Kyle Lindstrom (Bond, Roch) closed out the Wranglers scoring at 16:05 to make it 6-4.

Wranglers D-man Jaydon Gilding was named the game’s second star.

Wranglers Adam Derochie went all the way between the pipes and recorded the loss.

Check out the Keystone Cup website – pay-per-view webcasts available.

Parade slated

There will be a parade for the Wranglers through downtown 100 Mile House, starting at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday (April 19).

It will be followed by a tail-gate party at the community hall.

Everyone is invited to come down and cheer on our home-town heroes.

Assistance sought

The Wranglers have a GoFundMe account online in an effort to get help with the cost of having the Wranglers playing in the Keystone Cup.

They’re looking at a $29,000 bill to be challenging for the Western Canada Championship, so any financial help would be appreciated.
