The SSAC Southgate Lions have rolled through a pair of series so far in the ultra competitive Nitro North Division. First, they defeated the 18-8-7 St. Albert Sabres and then won 2 straight as well against a hot Edmonton CAC squad. The usual suspects have been red hot so far in the 4 games this playoffs with 98 born Tyler Benson leading the way with 1-11-12, Giorgio Estephan 6-5-11, Quinn Greenly 4-6-10 and 98 D- David Quennville with 3-6-9. SSAC will now go on to face Lloydminster in the North final.
The Lloydminster Heat who are coming off a successful campaign to which they easily won the Charger North by 11 points have made the North Final. They first disposed of western Canada Bantam Championship host Spruce Grove in 2 straight games, outscoring them 14-4. Then they needed 3 games to beat out Leduc 2 games to 1. Regular season scoring leader Andrew Koep has picked up where he left off by scoring 6-4-10 so far in 5 games, Zach Fischer and 98 D- Kale Clague each have 6 points.
The Calgary Bisons have silenced their nay-sayers in and around the AMBHL defeated the Calgary Bronks in 3 very hard fought games. They then played the AMBHL regular season champs in the Calgary Royals and beat them in 2 straight. The first game against the Royals was one in OT with a bounce off the backboards and off the goalie and in. The story so far for the Bisons has to be 98 born Zach Phillips who leads the team so far with 5-3-8 in 5 games. Braylon Shmyr has 8 points as well while Nick Merkley has just 3 points in 3 games.
Lastly, the Medicine Hat Hounds and Airdrie Xtreme are tied at 1-1 with the 3rd and deciding game to go this afternoon in Medicine Hat. Mitch Hallas enters the game leading the Hounds with 10 points in 5 games while Chad Harrison has 6 points in 4 games for Airdrie.
