Just over a week ago it really wasn't looking like the Ste. Anne Aces would see game seven of the South Eastern Manitoba Hockey League final.
After losing the first two games by scores of 4-1 and 4-0, Ste. Anne gave up five first period goals in game three and fell 9-3 in Morden.
The Bombers were thinking sweep while the Aces just wanted to prolong their season one win at a time.
Prolong their season they did.
Three wins in four days means there will be a game seven in the SEMHL final Saturday night in Morden.
Just 24 hours after dominating the Bombers 9-3 in game five, Tanner Harms scored 16:47 into overtime to lift the Aces past Morden 4-3 Wednesday night at the Maurice Chaput Arena.
"It's never going to be a pretty one in overtime," said Harms. "Back-to-back games, everybody is tired so just trying to get pucks on net. Shot from the point, I got a stick on it and I think it went off one of their guys and in. Lucky for us."
Mike Rey had a pair of goals for the Bombers who enjoyed a 3-1 lead midway through the third period in game six.
Joey Moggach got Ste. Anne within one when he beat Morden netminder Reed Peters with 9:18 left and then Keith Grondin potted the equalizer three minutes later.
Harms talked about the run the hockey team is on after losing the first three games of the final starting with Sunday's 6-4 victory in game four.
"We were getting away from our game plan early on. We weren't doing the things that we wanted to do. We've stuck to a game-plan and it's been working so far."
Harms is looking forward to a battle with the Bombers on Saturday night now that the final is a best-of-one.
"They're going to give it everything they've got and hopefully we can do what we can to take it away."
