The SWT U13 AA Broncos fell 6-4 to the Warman Wildcats in a back-and-forth opening game of the best-of-three Provincial Final on Tuesday night in Warman.

Chad Logan opened the scoring for the Broncos 6:15 into the game before Reid Viden and Jesse Scriven scored just nine seconds apart to give Warman a 2-1. Carter Bleau tied the game at 2-2 with 3:21 left in the first, and then Sullivan Bursaw restored the Wildcat's lead just 2:01 into the middle frame before Dallin Mitchell tied it back up with 6:13 left in the middle frame. After Scriven and Caleb Philip put Warman up 5-3 in the third period, Dylan Bye got the Broncos within a goal with a power play marker with 2:24 in regulation, but Will Kasner would get an empty-netter to seal the victory for the Wildcats.

Cole Anderson made 24 saves as Swift Current outshot Warman 58-30.

The Broncos host a must-win game two of the series on Friday at 5:00 p.m. from S3 Arenas with game three, if necessary, on Sunday in Warman.
