REDVERS - The U15 Redvers Rockets capped off a great season by winning the Moose Mountain Minor Hockey League championship.

In their best-of-three playoff series, they swept both the Estevan Bears and Weyburn. In the final, they defeated the Milestone Flyers in two straight games, winning their last game on the road.
In their six playoff games, they outscored their opposition 35-18.
Jody Jorgensen was the coach of the U15 Rockets. The team assistant coaches were Syd Chicoine and Chad Lawless.
“We had a great group of kids that were eager to learn and easy to teach. To them, team wins were much more important than individual accomplishments. Thank-you to all the players, our coaches and executive of the team and Redvers Minor Hockey. And a big thank-you to all the parents and our fans,” said Jorgensen.
“The parents, grandparents and community members have all really enjoyed watching these kids come together as a team and dig deep for so many Ws,” said manager Courtney Gavelin. “All 21 kids wanted to feel this win and they worked really hard all year to get it. It’s been a fun and exciting year and we are very proud of them.”
