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.

Parade slated

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.
