Wildcats open season at home
The Swift Current Diamond Energy Wildcats will be at home to open the Saskatchewan Female Midget AAA Hockey League regular season Saturday and Sunday.
The Wildcats will open the regular season this weekend when they host the Prince Albert Bears.
Prince Albert opened the season with a 2-0 win and a 1-1 draw against the Weyburn Wings last weekend. The Bears should be led offensively by centre Kaitlin Willoughby, who finished seventh in league scoring last season with 38 points in 28 games.
The Wildcats are icing a young team this season. Maple Creek’s Delaine Feil is the top scoring returnee after registering 15 points in 27 games last season. The return of Karrah Newkirk from a broken leg should also provide some veteran scoring. Newkirk finished third in team scoring in 2010-11.
Saturday’s game will begin at 7:45 p.m. and Sunday’s tilt will start at 1:30 p.m. Both games take place at Fairview West Arena.
