Both the Unity Midget AA and the Midget A Lazers played provincial final games in Unity, SK, Saturday, March 29. Although neither team emerged as provincial champions, these hard-working teams of young men deserve credit for their excellent seasons, including coming oh-so-close to claiming their respective provincial banners.
See the April 7 issue of the Unity Wilkie Press-Herald for a wrap-up article on the minor hockey season and additional photos. In the meantime, are some action shots from both games.

MIDGET A LAZERS vs. Yorkton Mintos
The Unity Midget AA Lazers are playing for a provincial banner, going up against the Notre Dame Hounds in the final. They also have advanced to the Centre Four Hockey League final.
REMAINING HOME GAMES: In provincials, the Unity, SK Lazers host the Hounds Saturday, March 29, at 4 pm while, in league, a tentative game 3 – if needed – against Beardy’s has been scheduled for Friday, March 28, at 7:30 pm.
These photos are from the second northern provincial final against the Saskatoon Icehawks, which the Lazers won 3-0. They were tied at 4-4 with the Icehawks going into the second game of the total-point, two-game series. Justen Close, shown in the first photo shaking hands with the linesman after the game, had the shutout, stopping 29 shots.
With eight wins, a loss and two ties, the Unity Midget Lazers stand in second place in the Hi-way 14 Hockey League, behind Kerrobert who has nine wins and a tie. Eston, Eatonia and Leader are all hot on their heels, tied for third place with seven wins, one loss and two ties apiece.
These photos are from the Lazers’ home game against the Rosetown Redwings 1, January 5, which game the Lazers won 10-3. Their next home game is Saturday, January 18, at 6:15 p.m. when Elrose comes to town.
The Unity Midget AA Lazers opened their 2013-14 season in the Centre Four Hockey League Midget AA division with back-to-back games against the Prince Albert Raiders Oct. 12 and 13. The Unity team won the first game 4-0 and lost the Sunday game 6-5. See the October 21 Unity-Wilkie Press-Herald for full coverage of the games. Meanwhile, here are some photos from Sunday’s action.
The final cuts were made after an exhibition game played against Meadow Lake, in Unity, Sept. 29. The nine veterans on the team will be joined by five first-year midgets. Players come from the communities of Unity, Wilkie, Luseland, Kindersley, Macklin, Neilburg and Kerrobert.
Scott said traditionally the teams in the eastern part of the province are very strong although, until he sees this year’s teams, he can’t say for sure what will happen this year. Nevertheless he expects the Midget AA Lazers to be “in the middle of the pack or higher” this year.
The midgets will play in the Centre Four Hockey League again. They open the regular season with back-to-back home games against Prince Albert, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 13 at 2:15 p.m.
In the exhibition game, the Lazers beat Meadow Lake 8-3.
Assistant captains Devan Bertoia and Blake Robertson are both Unity boys and are joined on the team by Brandt Bertoia. Players from Wilkie and Luseland are Kirklan Glassford and Tyson Logan Munt. Ryan Donald of Rockhaven and Zach Herle of Neilburg are both attending school in Unity as well as playing with the Lazars. Cut Knife’s Dax and Declan Desmarais are also on the team.
