Oil It Ever Wanted

Provost Facing10 Other Senior Hockey
Teams in Oldest League
Provost faces off with 10 other hockey teams this season in the Battle River Hockey League, apparently the oldest mens hockey league in Alberta.
The BRHL marks its 50th anniversary this season.
Marty Lawes for the local Greenhead Blades hockey club says that a league meeting was held in Amisk on September 26 with all 11 teams represented.
On the ice this year will be teams representing the east division from Provost, Consort, Hughenden, Wainwright, Irma and Sedgewick while in the west division will be Castor, Big Valley, Viking, Tofield and Daysland.
The league looks promising this year says Lawes who is manager of the Blades.
Although the east and west play in separate divisions it will be the top eight teams overall who will compete in playoff action.
It is uncertain when the league begins its first game but Bonnyville is schedule to be in Provost on Friday night, October 15 for an exhibition game. Other exhibition games are also being planned by Provost in the meantime.
Last year going into playoffs there were only two or three points separating the top teamsfrom the fourth to the ninth place. That shows you how throughout the year the teams are . . . very competitive. You can win on any night says Lawes.
Last year Daysland beat Consort in the finals.
Daysland has won about seven out of the last eight years or so.
