For the second time in as many provincial series, the Full Line Ag Female Midget 'AA' Broncos once again find themselves needing a win in game two.

Tuesday night at the Fairview Arenas the Broncos dropped the opening game of their second round two game total point series, 3-2 to the Weyburn Drillers.

In the game Swift Current was able to get off to a very fast start against Weyburn.

Just 49 seconds into the game, Bronco's Forward Sara Kendall got Swift Current on the board for an early 1-0 lead.

Weyburn, however, was able to respond later in the period to tie the game 1-1.

Still tied at one in the middle frame, the Broncos dominated the period but were unable to get anything to show for it.

Swift Current fired shot after shot but never did regain the lead.

They outshot the Drillers 19-3 in the period, however, the score remained 1-1 after two.

In the final frame, the Broncos continued to control majority of the play but still could not find the elusive second goal.

For Weyburn though, they made the most of their opportunities.

Despite only managing four shots in the final period, the Drillers found the back of the net twice for a 3-1 lead with exactly 3:00 minutes left to play.

After falling behind by two, Swift Current was finally able to net their second goal of the game.

With 1:04 left to go Malisa Collier cut the deficit to 3-2 heading into game two.

Although having lost the game, Swift Current will still have plenty to build off of in Weyburn.

The opportunity will be there for the Broncos to carry over the momentum of Collier's late goal, and they should also be able to find confidence in knowing they outshot the Drillers 42-13.

Also in Swift Current's favour is the familiarity of the situation.

In their first round series against the Regina Capitals, Swift Current dropped game one 4-2, before bouncing back in game two for a 3-0 win and 5-4 total point victory.

Game two between the Broncos and Drillers will go Thursday in Weyburn.
