WILDCATS HOST EASTMAN AND PARKLAND

 

 

Westman will host both Eastman and Parkland on Saturday Jan. 12th at the Hartney arena in a 3 game round robin series.

 

Westman will battle Parkland at 11:00am, at 2:00; Parkland and Eastman will face off followed by a 5:00 match between the Host club and Eastman.

 

Parkland plays in the RMFHL and Eastman participates in the Winnipeg AA Female Midget league and Westman has been doing an exhibition schedule with elite level tournaments.

 

This round robin will give each program a different perspective of where they are sitting at this part of the season.

 

With only 6 weeks until the Provincial Championships, which each one of these programs are vying for, it will be a good measuring stick for what work each program needs to do in the next 45 days.
