The Sanford Sabres boys hockey team easily sliced through their opposition all year long, and in the end defeated the Lord Selkirk Royals 6-1 to win the Winnipeg High School Hockey League’s Free Press Division championship on March 12 at the MTS Iceplex.

The game capped off an incredible 17-game winning streak.

"We’ve had a pretty strong season all season long," said Sabres coach Ryan Ogilvie. "It’s a nice way to end the season off."

Losing just one game in regular season play, the Sabres were matched against the Miles Macdonell Buckeyes in the first playoff round, beating them in three games. They then trounced the Lorette Scorpions in straight games before meeting Lord Selkirk.

"We’ve worked hard and we deserved it (the championship)," said Sabres captain Chase Kendall, 17.

He said Lord Selkirk and the St. Paul’s Crusaders were their toughest opponents.

Kendall is one of 10 Sabres who will graduate in June, and he credits the team’s depth of experience for their spectacular season record.

But with so many players leaving Sanford Collegiate, Ogilvie knows next season is likely to be a rebuilding year for the team.
