The Kindersley Red Lions swept last week’s games, winning all three playoff contests and advancing to the league semifinals.

The Red Lions defeated the Biggar Nationals 2-1 in overtime on Thursday night in Biggar and followed that up with a 5-1 victory back in Kindersley to take the best-of-three Sask West Hockey League series.

They also played Sunday night, hosting the Shaunavon Badgers in Game 1 of their provincial senior A series, winning by an impressive 5-1.

Scott Brownlee celebrates after he scores the Red Lions’ fourth goal of the game in a 5-1 win over the Biggar Nationals on Friday in Kindersley. The win was also a series victory after winning 2-1 in overtime in Game 1.

The Red Lions must now wait to see who they play in the league semifinals.

Meanwhile, they head to Shaunavon on Friday to try to close out that best-of-three provincial series. If not, they play again in Shaunavon on Sunday afternoon.
