Adam Brooks' goal (pictured above) was the game winner as the Regina Pats beat the Swift Current Broncos 3-2.
While Game 1 arguably saw Daniel Wapple save the Pats bacon by making several big saves, Game 2 flattered the Broncos as the Pats were by far and away the better team.
Brooks' goal came with 13 and a half minutes to go to give Regina the lead after Swift Current tied the game at 2 in the second period on a controversial goal.
Its the first time the Pats have been up 2-0 in a series since 2000.
