The unstoppable juggernaut of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) has finished what they started over seven months ago.
The Battlefords North Stars defeated the Flin Flon Bombers 6-5 in Game 4 of the Canalta Cup Final on Wednesday night, sweeping the championship in four straight games and winning their first league title since 1999-2000.
Battlefords capped off one of the greatest regular seasons' in SJHL history (48-9-1) with an even more impressive performance in the playoffs.
The North Stars went undefeated in postseason play, a perfect (12-0) sweeping away the Weyburn Red Wings in the quarterfinals and the Power Dodge Estevan Bruins in the semi's before racking up four straight wins against Flin Flon in the final.
Battlefords will now advance to the Western Canada Cup held this year in Penticton, British Columbia after an historic hosting performance in Estevan in 2016.
The Western Canada Cup pits the champions of the SJHL, MJHL (Manitoba), AJHL (Alberta), BCHL (B.C.) and the host team. The tournament runs from April 29th - May 7th.
