(Bradford, ON; February 27, 2014)

The Bradford Rattlers will have to bounce back after a 6-4 defeat yesterday evening against their second round opponent the Toronto Blue Ice Jets. The Jets are a expansion franchise new to this season, but have recorded one of the most successful start-ups in the history of the GMHL.

The Jets were able to take both match-ups off Bradford during the regular season and will pose a competitive series for the veteran Rattlers.

Several key players from Bradford's championship run last season still remain on the roster. Captain Dino Gombar, Illes Gallo, Cody Bateman, Aaron Scott, Brandon Scott and Duncan Cameron were all on the championship roster last season.

Bradford will have to rely on the experience of these veterans to rally the club and respond in Game Two on Sunday, March 2nd. Pre-game coverage begins at 7:00pm on at the BWG.

The best of five series schedule continues:
Game Two: Home - Sunday, March  2 - 7:00pm BWG
Game Three - Away - Sunday, March 3 - 1:00pm
(If Neccessary) Game Four: Home - Monday, March 4 - 8:00pm BWG
(If Neccessary) Game Five: Away - Wednesday, March 6 - 2:30pm
