Another High scoring affair as the Tigers defeat Brandon 7-5
It's going to be a happy Bus Ride home.
Despite being outshot the Tigers out-chanced Brandon by a fair margin in the first period. The Tigers ended up building up a 5-1 lead and took a 5-2 lead into the third period, where they put it on cruise control.
Brandon lost captain Shayne Wiebe after blocking a shot during one of their penalty kills early in the second period.
Good Luck to the Brandon 20's in their future Endeavors.
The turning point in this series was in game 4, where the Tigers were down 4-1 in the third period, and managed to come back and tie up the series. They never looked back from that point on.
The Tigers will Face the Red Deer Rebels in the second Round. I understand It is likely that Tyler Bunz will be ready for game 1.

The Rebels vs Tiger Series should literally be a coin flip. The Tigers will have 3 days off, while the rebels will have a full week off. The Tigers have had the upper edge during the regular season but every game has been extremely close.
