The Estevan Sharks U14 NCL (National League Championships) teams traveled to Regina this weekend for more matchups on the road to the Canadian Finals in Calgary this May.

This past month has been a busy one for all of the Estevan Sharks players that have joined the Prairie League within the 14U NCL. During this weekend of play the Estevan Sharks boys have now secured their spot in the Western Canada Finals which will be held in Calgary, AB on May 10-12. 

The boys played six games this weekend in Regina and played some amazing water polo.  All games during the weekend showed great teamwork especially the final game on Sunday morning where the Sharks faced off against the Regina Armada A team. The Sharks dove in with a new strategy as up until now they could not overcome this team and had lost 8-6 and 10-9 on the previous two days.

So Sunday morning coach Dave Dzeryk and Jason Dalziel changed the strategy up and went in playing off up the right side of the pool. Up until this game Tristan Threinen and Ethan Elliot were being heavily guarded by the Armada team so this game the boy's strategy was to not use them for offense and switch up the lines. This confused the Armada team and the Sharks had a 6-5 lead at half time.

Continuing on this strategy left Lucas Dzeryk and Logan Dalziel fairly unguarded and moving into an offensive play these two scored 4 and 3 goals each this game. Noah Mvula, Dierks Milford, Nathan Threinen and Jace Carritt all did a good job playing a defensive game and Lyndon Sauder did an amazing job in net and held the Armada sharpshooters off as best he could.

Unfortunately, Armada got 2 quick breakaways in the last quarter and they took over the lead and won 11-9 final score. The Sharks also played the Regina Armada B team and won over them in matches that consisted of scores 10-8, 15-4 and 13-11. At the end of the weekend, the Estevan Sharks boys have a 7-3 record and that will earn them a spot going into Western Finals. The boys do have two more games to complete this series but based on their current standings they will retain their spot going into the finals in Calgary.

The Girls team faced both of the very strong Regina Armada teams in a total of 5 games. They started the weekend off with a huge win over the undefeated Armada 2 team 12-9. Jordyn Tarnes found the back of the net 5 times in that game. This was the girls only win of the weekend, but they fought hard and improved throughout the weekend. They play their final two NCL games at the end of March.

Team Sask 19U men and women's teams both finished first in the interconference crossover tournament in Calgary over the weekend. This secures their spots at Nationals in Calgary in May. Four players from the Estevan Sharks water polo club are on the 19U women's team. 16U players Mikayla Hack, Josie Andrist and Alex Andrist and former Shark Teagan Hack represented our club, city, and province in 3 days of games. Team Sask faced teams from Calgary, Edmonton, and 2 from British Columbia. The women won 5 out of 6 of the games.
