LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
They got oh-so-close to the Kelly Cup last year, but fear not, the Las Vegas Wranglers will be back in the playoff mix again this year.
With a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Bulls on Friday, the Las Vegas Wranglers punched their ticket to the 2013 Kelly Cup Playoffs.
The Wranglers made it to the Kelly Cup Finals last year, falling to the Florida Everblades in a hard-fought series.
Following a weekend loss to the Colorado Eagles, the Wranglers again topped the Bulls on Sunday, 6-2. Following Sunday's game, eight Wranglers players and head coach and General Manager Ryan Mougenel shaved their heads for St. Baldrick's to raise money for the battle against childhood cancer.
The team raised more than $20,000.
The team will begin a seven-game road stretch beginning on Wednesday against the Ontario Reign before returning to Orleans Arena to face the Bakersfield Condors on Tuesday, March 19.
