A Memorable Hockey Season for the Cupar Canucks
Mr. Hart: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, the Cupar Canucks, the senior hockey team, certainly had a memorable hockey season that ended this past Saturday. Back in January they celebrated their 100th anniversary Mr. Speaker, and they went on to finish first in the Highway Hockey League. But their claim to fame this hockey season, Mr. Speaker, was in the Senior A provincial playoffs where they defeated such teams from Indian Head, Langenburg, and two games straight in the southern playoffs, and won the southern championships in a hard-fought series with the Southey Marlins where the Canucks won the final game in front of a capacity, home crowd.
After winning the southern championships, Mr. Speaker, they want on to play the Kindersley Klippers in the provincial championships. It was a very close series, Mr. Speaker, with each team winning their home game, and the final game being played this past Saturday in Kindersley. The game was a close game back and forth with one team leading in one period and the Canucks leading in the third period, but Kindersley came on late in the third period to tie the game, Mr. Speaker. And unfortunately the Canucks lost the game in the third period, third overtime period, Mr. Speaker.
But congratulations to the Canucks and all those people associated with them, particularly manager Kelly Findling, the coaches, Jamie and Wade Herauf, and Rob Wolsley, Kevin Bonish, and Neil Schulhauser. Mr. Speaker, way to go, Canucks.
