Bantam Broncos win league title

Justin Dueck stopped all 42 shots he faced to help lift the Swift Current Broncos to their first Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League title.

The Broncos were out-shot 42-23 but defeated the host Sask Valley Vipers 4-0 Saturday to sweep the best-of-three championship series.

Riley Dekowny led the Broncos with two goals and an assist. Reed Jacobson and Keagon Little also scored, while Mac Gross added an assist.

The Broncos opened the scoring with a power play goal from Little and finished one-for-four on the man-advantage. They also killed off the only shorthanded situation they found themselves in.

The Broncos and host Vipers will both participate in the Western Canadian Bantam AAA Championships in Warman and Martensville on March 30 – April 2.
