The Edmonton Prospects swept the double-header against the Brooks Bombers, taking game one 15-5 and game two 8-4. The victories give the Prospects a two game lead in the West Division over the Fort McMurray Giants for the final playoff spot, but currently have two more games played.

The Prospects finish their season off against the Bombers on Monday as the Giants conclude things versus the lowly Yorkton Cardinals who currently have a record of 6-47. If the Giants suffer a loss to the Cardinals, their season will be over as the Prospects just need a victory and a Giants loss to clinch a playoff spot. This scenario could also go the other way, as the Giants only need an Edmonton loss and a sweep of the Cardinals to secure their playoff birth. Keep an eye on all the action in the final days of the season.
