Royals, C-Hawks prepare for Senior A provincials

After winning their respective leagues, the Deloraine Royals and Miniota/Elkhorn C-Hawks are busy preparing for Hockey Manitoba’s Senior A provincial championship.

The Royals will represent the Tiger Hills Hockey League while the C-Hawks are the North Central Hockey League’s rep at the event, which runs on a pair of weekends starting April 11 and ending with the final on April 19 in Winnipeg.

Deloraine and Miniota/ Elkhorn have been placed in the same pool and will open the event by facing each other in Rivers on April 11 at 8:30 p.m.

The Royals will then take on the Altona Maroons, who play in the South Eastern Manitoba Hockey League and are the wildcard entry at provincials, in a game slated for Killarney on April 13 at 6 p.m.

The C-Hawks close out pool play against the Maroons on April 17 in Winnipeg at 8:30 p.m. The top two teams from the pool advance to the semifinals.

The C-Hawks had a solid season, topping the Tiger Hills league regular-season standings with an impressive 17-1-2 record before sweeping their best-of-five quarter-final and best-of-five semifinal over the Kenton Cougars and Minnedosa Bombers, respectively.

The Grandview Comets proved to be a tough test in the best-of-five league final, but the defending champion C-Hawks won all of their home games, including the fifth game 5-2, to take the series 3-2.

Deloraine also had the best record in its league. The Royals went 22-3-0-0 to finish first in the Tiger Hills’ West Division, earning a bye into the division semifinals.

They swept the Boissevain Border Kings in that series and took four games to get past the Souris Elks in the best-of-five division final.

Deloraine capped its championship run with a 5-3 win over the Gladstone Lakers in Game 4 of the best-of-five series.
