The Nanton Palominos of the Ranchland Senior Men's Hockey League are provincial's bound.

Coach Steve McMasters says they'll head to Innisfail to try and capture the title.

"We got the nod after winning the league championship and our first game will be Friday, April 5th at 2pm in Innisfail against the North Peace Hockey League champion Spirit River Rangers. And from what I hear we're going to have our hands full."

McMasters says they're pretty pumped up about competing against the best in Alberta.

"It's been a little tough here. we've been waiting a long time. The ice has been taken out of Nanton's arena so we've been practicing at the Centennial Arena in Okotoks."

The tournament runs from Friday to Sunday.
