The Pure Chem Bantam AA Broncos suffered a bit of a heart-breaker to open their best-of-three series with the Regina Aces Thursday night in the provincial capital.

In Game 1, the two teams traded leads, leading to a 2-2 deadlock, and an extra frame.

There, the Aces buried the game-winner 2:02 into the first overtime frame to take the series lead.

Goals came from Rhett Dekowny and Kalan Lind in the game, Rylan Silzer put up a pair of assists, while Rylan Hildebrand posted 28 saves for Swift Current.

With their backs up against the wall in the series, the Bantam AA Broncos look to avoid the sweep at home this weekend.

The Broncos and Aces face off in Game 2 on Sunday at Fairview West. A 4:45 p.m. start is scheduled for Swift Current's lone home date of the series.
