U15C Marauder Bandits Claim City Championship

by guest

The U15C Martensville Marauder Bandits claimed the Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association City Championship on March 22. The win capped a successful season for the team.

The playoffs, which were a double knockout tournament, began with the second place Bandits playing the Flyer Hounds on Wednesday March 9 coming away with a 5-1 win. Beating the Renegade Storm 5-2 on Friday March 11 set up a game against the number one team, the Legendary Aces. The winner would advance to the final series, the loser having to play their way back in to the final. The Aces won 4-3 on Wednesday March 16 clinching their spot in the final.

The Bandits played the Wild Fire on Saturday March 19 with the loser eliminated from the playoffs and the winner having to beat the Aces twice to win the Championship. A 3-2 overtime win sent the Bandits to the finals.

The first game of the finals on Monday March 21 was won by the Bandits 4-2. This was the Aces first loss since November 2021. The next night both teams came out flying in front of a large crowd at the ACT arena. After 60 minutes of well-played hockey, the Martensville Marauder Bandits prevailed with a 5-4 win to claim the Saskatoon City Championship.
