The Swift Current Full Line Ag Broncos were eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Female Midget AA provincial playoffs on Thursday, losing 5-4 in the two-game, total-goal series to the Weyburn Drillers.

The Female Midget Broncos will now turn their attention to the South Sask Female Hockey League playoffs. They finished fifth with a 14-9-5 record and will face the fourth-place Parkland Lions (17-10-1) in a best-of-three series.

The series opens Monday in Ochapowace. Game two will be played Friday at 6:45 p.m. at Fairview East Arena. Game three, if necessary, would be played on Sunday in Melville.
