by Aidan Rai

The semi-finals have concluded, and the Mounties and the Raiders will once again be competing in the finals for a spot in the Minto cup tournament.  Both of these teams showcased quality performances in the first round in order to reach this point.

After dropping the first game in their semi-final series, the Mounties managed to string together three wins in a row to end the Miners’ season.  They ended the series on a strong note, by blowing out the Miners by a score of 17-4.

The Raiders managed to sweep the SWAT in three close low scoring games.  The final two games of the series ended in identical scores, with the Raiders edging out the SWAT 7-6.

The Mounties and the Raiders have met up in the finals on multiple occasions, and the results have been mixed.  The 7-game series will begin on Friday at Stu Peppard Arena.  The arena will surely be brimming with energy as each team will be looking to draw first blood.
