The Bonnyville Pontiacs will battle the defending AJHL champions in round two. The Pontiacs will face-off against the Spruce Grove Saints in the Northern Division Semi-Final. The Yaks are coming off a three-game sweep of the Whitecourt Wolverines in the opening round. Meanwhile, the Saints took four games before they could knock off the Drayton Valley Thunder.
The Pontiacs went 4-2 against the Saints during the regular season. Spruce Grove is coming off a year that saw them finish third and just three points back of the Pontiacs in the second spot in the AJHL North standings.
Bonnyville will have home-ice advantage in the series due to their better record. Game one goes Friday night at the RJ Lalonde Arena inside the C2. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
