On the hockey side, the Miners played their last game of the season Friday night, losing to the Biggar Nationals and putting the Unity SK team out of the SWHL playoffs. Congratulations to the team of local “boys” on a good season and we look forward to next year!

With nearby Kindersley, Saskatchewan hosting the 2014 World Junior A Challenge hockey series, Unity was chosen to host the pre-tournament game between Canada East and Russia. The game was played in front of about 700 local and visiting hockey fans the evening of December 12.
Unity Composite High School’s Journalism class also live streamed the game, complete with pre- and post-game interviews and “Coaches’ Corner” segments between periods.
Russia dominated play early in the first period, scoring the first goal only a minute and 35 seconds after the opening faceoff.
Although Canada bounced back to have numerous scoring chances, outshooting the Russians 33 to 23, Russia’s goalie kept them in the game for the ultimate 5-2 win. Goalie Anton Krasotkin was one of the more sought-after players after the game when it was time to sign autographs.
Enjoy these photos from the game and other events of the evening. Please see the December 22nd issue of the Unity-Wilkie Press-Herald for additional photos and coverage of the events.
