The host Saskatoon Contacts have punched their ticket to Sunday’s Telus Cup West final.
Saskatoon (2-0-0) has the tournament’s only perfect record following Friday’s 5-1 win over the Saskatchewan-champion Notre Dame Hounds (0-2-0) at Rod Hamm Memorial Arena. Although the Hounds won’t play beyond the round-robin, which wraps up Saturday, both the Winnipeg Wild (1-0-1) and the Kenora Thistles (0-1-1) have a shot at qualifying for the final.
Saturday’s final round-robin action sees Kenora play Notre Dame at noon, followed by Saskatoon and Winnipeg at 3:30 p.m.
Sunday’s final is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Rod Hamm Memorial. The winner will represent the West region at the national Telus Cup championship in Quispamsis, NB, April 18-24.
