Fairbanks won the all-out hard-hitting, riveting Best of Five, 3-2, and will now host the NAHL Robertson Cup.
Bliss Littler, coach of Wenatchee, told reporter John Meissner of Juniorhockey.com “…I am very proud of our effort. From where we started to where we ended, we’re awfully proud of this season.”
