STEINBACH, Man. — Ready or not, the Thunder Bay Twins will get another shot at the Bentley Generals in an Allan Cup semifinal today at 3 p.m.

The Twins, who were hammered 9-1 by the Generals in a preliminary contest of the national senior AAA hockey championship tournament Wednesday, rebounded to edge the Lloydminster Border Kings 3-2 in overtime in a quarter-final Thursday afternoon at Centennial Arena, getting the winning goal from Ian Staal.

Joey Nigro and Mike Campaner, whose third-period marker forced overtime, also scored for the Twins. Cole Fern and Ryan Rivett replied for the Border Kings.

Thunder Bay netminders Colin Zulianello and Louis Grenier combined to stop 33 shots, while B.J. Boxma made 29 saves for Lloydminster.

In the evening quarter-final, Dorian Anneck and Kelly Glowa each tallied twice to lead the host Steinbach North Stars past the Dundas Real McCoys of Ontario 8-4 and into a semifinal clash with the South East Prairie Thunder of Manitoba tonight at 7 p.m.

Also scoring for the North Stars were former NHL players Chris Nielsen and Theoren Fleury, Jeff Hoad and Mark Dutiame, while winning goalie Justin Harris turned aside 32 shots.

The Dundas duo of Brett Leggat and Mike Minard made 35 saves.

The final is set for 2 p.m. Saturday and will be televised by TSN.
