The U15 Highway 9 Predators, a combined team from Canora Minor Hockey and Preeceville Minor Hockey, appears to be clicking early in the season, and came home with first place after the Kelvington tournament on December 11.
This year the two communities came together to form a U15 team as both communities didn’t have enough players to make a team on their own. The team members honour their roots with their logo being a combination of the Canora Cobra and Preeceville Pats logos.
On December 11 the team travelled to Kelvington, enjoying the opportunity to play against teams from outside of their league play.
Teams were all well matched and it made for a great day of hockey, according to reports from the tournament. In three games during the day, The Highway 9 Preds tied 1 to 1 against Wynyard, won 5 to 4 over Stanley Mission, and beat the Park Rams 2 to 0 in the final to win the tournament.
Home games are shared between Canora and Preeceville and everyone is invited to come see the team in action. Follow Canora Minor Hockey and Preeceville Minor Hockey Facebook pages or Majorhockeyleague.ca for game schedules.
