Monday night the Boston Pizza / Western GM Bantam Raptors had a unique opportunity to win their third banner of the year.  

The Raptors had a very successful year with 16 wins and 2 losses with 6 ties through the regular season and the tiering round.  With their success this year, they qualified for the Bantam B Provincials after winning the zone banner.  The teams they faced in Vermilion were Tier 1 and Tier 2 teams.  The Raptors got into the final against the St. Paul Canadiens after beating the host team in the semi-finals.  Drumheller would end up winning the provincial final and the Bantam B Provincial banner.

On Sunday, March 24, the Raptors traveled to Hanna to face the Hanna Colts for the league championship.  Hanna lead the series 1-0 going into the game on Sunday and also won the Bantam D Provincials.  Drumheller was down in the third period and was able to tie the game to take it to overtime.  The game would need three overtime periods before Drumheller would score to force game three on Monday night.bantamcoltsgoalieHanna Colts goaltender preparing for the next shot

Monday, was a do or die game for both teams in Drumheller.  The Bantam Raptors got a treat from the Drumheller Dragons as the team was able to use their dressing room with lockers and nameplates on their lockers. Dragons Head Coach Kevin Hasselberg also spoke to the team to get them prepared for the game.  It was a hard fought game between the two teams with Drumheller coming out on top 6-3.   

Congratulations to the Bantam Raptors on a very successful season and playoff!!!
