The Steinbach Bantams continue to roll as they came away with a bronze medal during a weekend tournament in Kenora, Ontario.

Steinbach set a blistering pace through the round robin finishing with a perfect 4-0 record.

Friday night saw a 4-2 win over Jarnel followed by another win, this time over Kenora Forest Choppers 3-1.

The winning continued Saturday as they downed Homlund Leafs 3-1 and Green's Predators 3-2.

After already playing two games on Saturday, the semi-finals were set for the same afternoon but the Millers didn't seem to have the same jam they showed earlier in the day.

They put up a tough fight but eventually fell to Wu's Warriors from Fort Francis in a heartbreaking 3-2 overtime.

The semi-finals loss was not only their third game of the day but their 5th in 24 hours.

In the bronze medal game on Sunday, Steinbach showed more life in the legs and brought their game, hungry to get a medal.

After a pretty even first period which didn't have either team find the back of the net, Kenora was able to jump out in front in the middle period, grabbing a 1-0 lead. 

Steinbach answered back five minutes into the third period as Gavin Pidsadny beat the defender wide and made a hard cut to the net and fired a shot blocker side which the goalie got a piece of but not enough to keep it from going over the line, game tied 1-1.

With time winding down in the third and overtime looming for a second straight game, Tobin Sawatzky drove to the net as a point shot from Griffin Plett made its way towards the net. Plett's shot was stopped but the rebound was there for Sawatzky who banged it home and set the bench into a frenzy as Steinbach grabbed a late lead 2-1.

Goaltender Jaxon Loewen played well all tournament long and continued that into the bronze medal game as he shut the door and backstopped the Millers to a thrilling 2-1 win to capture the bronze.
