“It was a very entertaining game with numerous lead changes. The lads came away with a second place finish, but I was very happy with their play all weekend. I look forward to another week of development going into the Len Williams Memorial home tournament this weekend,” said head coach Lars Guenther.

The junior girls hosted a home tournament over the weekend.

In their first game on Friday, they beat Radville, and then defeated Fillmore on Saturday morning, which advanced them to the final against Moosomin A girls where they lost in a close game.
