Dates have been set for the SJHL final series between the Bombers and the Estevan Bruins.

The series will begin in Estevan with Games 1 and 2 April 22 and 23, before returning north for Games 3 and 4 April 26 and 27. From there, the games will flip-flop if they need to be played. Game 5 (if needed) will be played April 30 in Estevan, with a possible Game 6 played in Flin Flon May 3. If both teams are tied at three-all, a decisive Game 7 for the league championship would be played in Estevan May 6 - just two weeks before the start of the Centennial Cup, which both teams will play in.

The Bombers are also arranging a fan bus to go down to Estevan for Games 1 and 2 next week. For a cost of $200 each, fans can take in both games, leaving April 22 and staying overnight in Estevan before heading home after Game 2. Reservations can be made by contacting Bomber board member Adam Ricard at adamricard22@gmail.com. At least 50 Bomber fans will be needed to book the bus.

Estevan swept the sixth-seeded Yorkton Terriers in the semi-finals, while the Bombers upset the second-seed Humboldt Broncos in five games.
