Barons Face Bobcats in Second Round Playoff Battle

With the first round of the AJHL playoff in the books, the Fort McMurray Oil Barons are to take on their next challenge: the Lloydminster Bobcats.

The Bobcats set up the matchup after defeating the Whitecourt Wolverines 4-2 in game five of their first round series. The Spruce Grove Saints will face the Sherwood Park Crusaders in the other North Division semi-final, with that series set to get underway on Friday as well.

While the Bobcats are coming off a big win Wednesday night, MOB head coach Gord Thibodeau said he expects his team to be ready to face the Bobcats this weekend, despite having a few days of rest after eliminating the Drayton Valley Thunder.
