It took more than sixty minutes to reach a decision, but it was the Estevan Bantam Bruins coming up favoribly in their lone game of the weekend against the top team in their division.

Facing the Regina Pat Blues on Saturday, it was Mason Ficther carrying the Bruins through the first two frames, a goal in each, to give Estevan a 2-0 lead into the third. Then the Pat Blues came out in the third with a pair to tie the game with just over a minute left to play. It was Kaden Chrest who found the net in overtime to put the Bruins up 3-2 over Regina. Jackson Miller stopped 33 of 35 shots in the win.

"We've been competing with all the top teams, and we've been close. To get a victory over one of them was a big confidence booster...it was a good game, the way our boys all played, we had strong goaltending and some timely goals," said Head Coach Blaine Chrest.

"It actually didn't take long, either," he added of the overtime period, "We controlled the puck, and got a break on a pass and scored on a break away. It was a good win, that's for sure."

The Bantam Bruins are back in action on the 21st and 22nd of December, when they take on the Yorkton Terriers and Regina Monarchs, respectively.
