MOOSOMIN - The Redvers Rockets are one win away from winning the Big Six Hockey League championship.

Redvers has a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-five final against the Moosomin Rangers, after a 3-1 win in Moosomin on Sunday night. 

Devin McGonigal scored 20 seconds into the first period of Game 2 to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead. It would be Moosomin’s only goal of the night.

Oliver Poirier scored midway through the first period for Redvers to tie the game. Presten Kopeck scored what proved to be the winning goal midway through the second, and Jordon Miller added the insurance goal in the third.

Cody Matthewson (Redvers) and Kyler Beckett (Moosomin) were the goalies.

The Rockets won Game 1 6-3 Friday night. 

Redvers will have the opportunity to wrap up the final March 24 in Redvers. Game time is at 8 p.m. Game 4, if necessary, would be two nights later in Moosomin at 7 p.m.

Meanwhile, two Big Six teams saw their bids for provincial titles come to an end on the weekend.

The Carlyle Cougars lost 4-3 to the Wadena Wildcats Saturday in Wadena. The Wildcats won the best-of-three final in two straight games.

Wadena won Game 1 4-3 in Carlyle a week earlier.

Meanwhile, in the senior D provincial final, the Kyle Elks beat the Carnduff Red Devils in three games.

Kyle won Game 1 8-3 in Carnduff on March 12. Carnduff won 8-5 in Kyle on Saturday to keep the series going. But Kyle won 8-1 Sunday to clinch the championship.
