Novice teams earn banners in home tourney


The Swan Valley Novice hockey players took their turn to host a home tournament last weekend (Jan 26-28) where teams from Thompson, Dauphin, Flin Flon and The Pas, along with two local teams participated.
Four teams walked away with championship banners including the Flin Flon Vipers with the A-side championship, the Swan Valley Broncos with the B-side, Swan Valley Mustangs with the C-side and The Pas Huskies rounding it off with the D-side victory.
Both novice teams will be heading to Dauphin next weekend (Feb. 2-4), and Parkissimo Leagueplay-offs will be starting soon.
The Broncos are planning to go to the Grand Plains Tournament while the Mustangs will head to Roblin and Souris for tournaments in the next few upcoming weeks.
Two more minor hockey tournaments are scheduled to take place locally before the season comes to a close – the Bantam A Stampeders from Feb. 16-18 and PeeWee B Feb. 24-25.
