But the Wolves won the tie-breaker on the strength of a 15-10, come from behind win over the Cardinals on July 24 in Estevan.

The Cubs, meanwhile, moved into a tie for third place with the Carnduff Astros at 6-3-1, however, the Cubs won the tie-breaker because they won a game against Carnduff early in the year.

The Redvers A’s will finish fifth at 5-4-1. They finished their season with a 7-5 win over the Kipling Royals on Friday.

The Oxbow Chiefs (4-6) wrapped up sixth place Friday with a 15-8 victory over the Southeast Fireballs (1-7-2), who will finish eighth. The Royals will be the seventh seed after compiling a 3-7 mark during the season. 

The Arcola Threshers finished ninth at 0-9-1, and will play the Fireballs in a play-in game on Monday. The winner of that series will play the Wolves in the opening round.  

The league will run its playoffs in August, using best-of-three series throughout to crown a champion.
