The Mils started off like any road would love to do and that's with a quick goal as they would get an early power play and Kelvin Walz would deflect in a Adam Dibella point shot for his 7th to give Them an early 1-0 lead. It would stay like that until just under 5 minutes into the 1st as then Austin Daae would go top shelf on Richard Palmer to tie it at 1 and that's what it would sit as after 1 period.!
Then the 2nd would go back and forth until mid way through the 2nd as the Bruins would get their own deflection goal and it would be Connor McKenzie get a stick on the puck to give the Bruins their first lead at 2-1. But a short time later, the Mils would make it a tie game once again as there was mad scramble in front of the Bruins net and Ashton Clark would whack it in for his 1st SJHL goal to make it 2-2 after 40 minutes.
In the 3rd period, Estevan would get a man advantage for the 1st time and tent would captialize just 6 seconds in as Daae would bang home his second of the night to make 3-2 Estevan. The Mils would have their chances including a couple posts off the sticks of Eric Meyer and Colin Mospanchuk but couldn't get anything past Matt Gibney. The Bruins would add an insurance marker as Dase would finish off a one time for his hat trick goal to make it a 4-2 Bruins final.
Gibney stopped 31 shots for the win while Richard Palmer stopped 34 shots in a losing cause.
The Mils return to action on Friday for the first game of a home and home in Yorkton, a game you can hear on GX94 with pregame starting at 7:20 from yeah FAA.
