We featured a U13 girls team on Classic Hits Radio for the past 2 weeks. In our community events calendar each player from the team invited the listening public to come watch them "play at home this weekend".
In the first inivitational weekend they faced the Weyburn Youngfellow Gold Wings. They won both games. In the second weekend they faced the Lumsden Bethune Lynx. They won by even higher margins this time. They managed to outscore their opponents 37-3, in those final four games.
Saturday February 11th they skated to a 8-1 victory. Sunday the 12th was a 8-0 shutout. The visiting team was from Weyburn.
Lumsden Bethune Lynx were in Kindersley this past weekend to take on the girls, who are mostly from Rosetown and Kindersley. Saturday February 18th the Thunder won 10 - 0. Sunday the 19th was lopsided as well, with a final score of 11-2.
Western Prairie Thunder U13AA girls had the best record in the Sask Female Hockey League. 25 W - 1 L - 0 ot - 0 otl.
Their first place finish allows them to take a break at the same time students are out of school for the February break. We wanted to ask team manager Amber Rennie about the gap in games. "We earned a bye in the first round of playoffs." Sask Female Hockey league playoffs will serve as provincials for all the divisions that include all teams.
Rennie says that they may try to line up some competition. "We're waiting on the winner of Estevan and Lumsden. It might be two weeks off, so we'll line up an exhibition game."
She helped line up the radio station tour on Feb 8th. She played her minor hockey in Kindersley. As any scouted player can attest, hockey will have you moving around a lot. She managed to land at a College in the States. She played NCAA Div 1 for four years at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, Penn.
Her statement about the formation of a female U22 Junior league in the province: "It'll be a great option for girls to continue to play hockey. It will also help build women's hockey in the province."
