The Neepawa Farmers have avenged their playoff knockout from last season by eliminating the Carberry Plainsmen Sunday evening. Neepawa defeated Carberry by a convincing 8-1 score in Game 5 Sunday to win the best-of-five series 3-2. The Farmers put the game away by the midpoint of the second period and led 7-1 after 40 minutes. Shane Jury scored three times for the Farmers, while Cam Tibbett and Reg Delaloye scored two goals apiece. The win means the Plainsmen are eliminated from the Tiger Hills Hockey League's (THHL) playoffs while the Farmers will go on to face the Souris Elks in the Finals. Souris swept its best-of-five semi-final series against Deloraine. The Elks were the only team in the THHL to have a better record than the Farmers this season with a 17-win, two-overtime loss record - Neepawa held a 16-win, three-loss record – so Souris will have home ice advantage in the finals. The THHL finals are best-of-seven if both teams agree to it, otherwise the series will be best-of-five; the series' length wasn't decided by press deadline Monday morning. Neepawa took the only matchup between the two teams in the regular season this year courtesy a 5-4 overtime win. In the semi-final against the Carberry Plainsmen, the two teams battled out a physical series as expected with the rivalry between the squads, but the scorelines were often much more spread out than anticipated. Game 4 in Carberry Saturday was the only game that was within two goals, with the Plainsmen winning 7-5 in a game filled with penalties. On Friday in Neepawa, the Farmers jumped out to a 5-1 lead before Carberry battled back to within two at 5-3. Shane Jury sniped a goal late in the third period to end the scoring at 6-3 in Neepawa's favour. Lance Nugent had a hat trick in the game while Jury scored twice and Brett Dreger notched the other. The Farmers powerplay was effective as well, moving the puck very well and accounting for two of Neepawa's goals. Carberry won Game 2, 8-3 while Game 1 was won by Neepawa 9-2.
