Provincial midget hockey weekend

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.

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.
