Can the Unity Miners repeat?

With the regular Sask West Hockey season over, playoffs are set to begin February 6. Finishing in sixth place in the league, the Unity Miners take on the third place Kindersley Red Lions in the first round of playoffs.

Last year, similarly sitting near the bottom of the league standings, the Miners pulled off a surprise upset and knocked out the then reigning league champion Red Lions. They then carried on through the playoffs, ultimately winning the SWHL 2014 championship. Can they repeat?

The Miners travel to Kindersley SK Friday, February 6 and play at home Saturday, February 7 at 8 pm.

Below are scenes from Unity’s last home game of the regular season, co-incidentally also against the Kindersley Red Lions. The game, played January 24, ended with a 3-1 victory for the Kindersley team.

  • why disposing of garbage costs money;
  • reaction from the victims of the recent thefts in our area as well as insurance tips from local insurance brokers and theft prevention tips from the RCMP;
