Here they are, your two 2016 YFCHL Champions!!!
The Saskatchewan Valley Wheat Kings had quite the season! After being ousted from the playoffs in a Game 7 overtime loss last year, this group made a point of having a different year! They finished the season in first place after going on a 15 game winning streak and establishing a prominent lead! Come playoffs, they were ready to play winning the first series 4-0 and the final 4-1. It was well earned by this good group of kids, and it was great to see them hold up the Kelvin Cup!
The Saskatoon Stingers finished the regular season in second place. By far the most tight knit group at YFCHL, this group was ready to fight for each other to win that cup! They polished off their first series with ease sweeping the Capitals, but were worried coming up against the first place Saskatoon Eagles. It was projected that these two teams would meet in the finals and it was an eventful series. There was a huge back and forth momentum swing wit hard fought games and heated emotions. At the end of the day, the Stingers just stepped up that extra level to fight off the Eagles and hoist our Stanley Cup. It was an amazing season, and an even better round of playoffs.
