For the second straight year, the South East Prairie Thunder will play for the Allan Cup.
But this time, they get to do it on home ice.

The Thunder will take on the Bentley Generals from Alberta for the title. The same two teams played in last year’s final in Newfoundland, with the Thunder getting a 2-0 win to capture the Allan Cup.
Today’s final goes at 3 p.m. in Steinbach.
