It's two steps forward, one step back for the Kenora AAA Midget Thistles.

They took two from the Parkland Rangers in Dauphin Friday and Saturday, only to get shutout 3-0 by the Yellowhead Chiefs Sunday afternoon in Shoal Lake, Manitoba.

Now nine points back, Sunday's loss eliminated the Thistles from the post-season in the Manitoba league. However, Kenora still has a chance to beat Thunder Bay in the branch championships.

The best-of-five series starts in mid-March. The winner gets a berth in the western regionals of the Telus Cup.

Kenora finishes out their regular season with a four-game homestand. It starts next Saturday night against the Interlake Lightning.
