The Estevan Tap House Wolves will be a busy bunch come Friday, as they'll be hosting the Senior AA Tier 2 provincial tournament and battling five other teams for the title.

A couple of their opponents will be familiar...the Oxbow Chiefs lost to the Wolves in the Saskota playoff final, and only suffered one loss all regular season long. The Carlyle Cardinals lost in the semifinals, and finished third in the season standings. However, there will be some teams that Estevan will be facing for the first time this year.

"The Yorkton Yankees hosted it last year, and they just lost their league final but they've won that league many, many times. Kindersley (Stallions) is a new team this year that we haven't seen yet, but they finished in their league final and they've combined a few of their players with the team that beat them, so we expect them to be at the top of their game. Border City (Blue Jays, from Lloydminister) has won this tournament a few times in the last five years, including last year, and we went into a double extra inning game last year with them as well," observed Wolves player Danny Ewen.

"It's just going to be some really good baseball. There's a chance for any team to win any game, which is going to make it pretty good to watch."

On their side, the Wolves aren't taking any chances. 

"We've just been trying to practice, and stay loose, because we know two of the teams that are going to be at the tournament, Carlyle and Oxbow. We've got three others, we saw two of them last year but they're going to be brand new competition. We've gotta be on our A game to win this thing."
