The Mustangs went 3-0 in the round robin over the weekend to advance into the gold medal game. 

They beat the Medicine Hat Sun Devils 1, 9-1, in their opening game with Pladson and Gilroy picking up a hat trick each, and Bennet Burns, Cooper Bruce and Hayden Nidesh potting the other three goals.

Moose Jaw rolled to a 12-3 win over the Calgary Axemen Bandits in their next game, led by four goals from Gilroy and a hat trick and five points from Pladson. Ryder Widdup, Roman Markin, Nidesh and Bruce also scored in the win.

The Mustangs finished the round robin by topping the Swift Current Rampage, 9-6. Pladson scored four more goals, while Gilroy had two goals and three points. Bruce also found the back of the net twice, while Burns picked up a goal and two points, and Markin had two helpers.

The Mustangs 2 were also in Medicine Hat and posted a 1-2 record in the round robin. They beat the Calgary Hornets, 10-5; and lost 8-4 to the Cranbrook Outlaws, 8-4, and the Medicine Hat Sun Devils, 8-3.
