The Redvers Rockets are still celebrating after a big championship win over the weekend.
The Rockets defeated the Moosomin Rangers 10-2 Friday night to clinch the Big Six Hockey League title.
The Rockets won three straight games to sweep the series with the Rangers.
"They were all primed and ready to go with the crowd. It was a sold out crowd in Redvers, and everyone fed off of that," said head coach Ken Potapinski.
The Rockets were the top team in the league all season, finishing first in the standings.
"It's the last game that matters, the last series that matters. Everybody was set to finish it, that's for sure," Potapinkski said.
The Rockets had a tough loss last year, losing the finals in four games to the Carnduff Red Devils.
"That left a sour spot for us obviously whenever you lose when you're that close," Potapinski said. "We talked about it all summer and we started off with a loss at the start of the year. And with the veteran leadership we've got on our team, they just said we've got to pick it up. And everybody did and followed suit and they played hard all year."
The Rockets did not lose a game since the season opening loss to Oxbow, rattling off an impressive 27 straight victories to win the championship.
"We were determined after losing the first game of the year," Potapinski said.
Potapinski also guided the Rockets to a championship in 2018.
He said the win is particularly special to his returning guys.
"Eventually it's going to come to an end. There's a lot of ex-junior players from Redvers that are there and have been there for a lot of years," Potapinski said. "It's hard to win, and it's so much more sweet."
He also touched on the impact the victory had on the community.
"It's great whenever something like that happens to a small town community with so many local players, and obviously the support we had all year and the fans coming out, and they enjoyed it," he said. "It means a lot to the community, and it doesn't happen very often."
