A slow start to game 1 for the Mustangs resulted in a deep hole for the home side part way through game 1 of the SJHL finals. Some late goals by the Mustangs saw the opener end in a 6 to 3 score for the visiting team in a game that showed a lot of fatigue for the Mustangs after a difficult semi final 7 game set vs their rivals in Nipawin.
Game 2 was a different story as the Mustangs roared back early and often jumping out to a 4 to 0 lead after 1 and finished the game with a win and a final score of 7 to 4. A much better effort by the home side has made this series very interesting heading to the Whitney Forum for games 3 and 4. Game 5 goes Friday night at 7:30 PM at the Northern Lights Palace. Tickets go on sale Thursday at Noon.
