Team Carruthers capped off a championship run on Sunday afternoon as they downed Team Calvert, 6-3, in the finals. Team Carruthers stole two points in the 10th end to seal the victory.

Brad Jacobs, Derek Samagalski, and Connor Njegovan round out the foursome as they will head to Regina for the Brier that takes place from March 1 to 10.

Team Todoruk of Dauphin consisting of Greg, Darcy, Rob Fisher, and Terron Stykalo put together a great weekend against the top teams in the province. They played six games and qualified for the Elite 8 where they lost to Team Stewart, 8-4. 

The Parkland U18 Rangers started their weekend with a blowout loss and ended their weekend with a tight defeat.

On Saturday afternoon, they managed just 20 shots in an 8-0 loss against the Winnipeg Thrashers. Then on Sunday, Parkland battled right until the end; however, they came up short in a 5-4 loss against the Winnipeg Bruins.

Maddox Shindle, Hayden Seib, Cash Clarkson, and Cade Legaarden scored for Parkland in the win. The Rangers return to Credit Union Place next weekend for a pair of games against the Bruins.

The Rangers remain nine points back of a playoff spot and they can earn a maximum of 12 points the rest of the regular season. 

They did it for Myles Haverluck.

The Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy U15 Kings made their way to Brandon this weekend for the Tournament of Champions and after a thrilling final against the Saskatoon Northstars, the Kings are champions and they have dedicated their gold medal to the late Myles Haverluck of Dauphin.

In the final against Saskatoon, Dauphin won 5-4 in a shootout. Jordan Height was the only goal scorer in the shootout. Scoring in regulation was Ethan Zalischuk, Alex Lopez, Bodhi Bloomer, and Lyric Smith.

In Dauphin's semifinal victory over the Regina Blues, four Dauphin skaters scored in a 4-2 win. Dominic Chartrand found the back of the net twice while Lyric Smith and Josh Beyette also scored.

Six different scorers found the back of the net in Dauphin's second game of the tournament as they cruised past Minot with a 6-2 victory. They were Hayden Billet, Bodhi Bloomer, Riley Durston, Slade Nepinak, Josh Beyette, and Lyric Smith.

Dauphin opened their tournament with a 5-4 win against Melville. Josh Beyette recorded a pair of goals while Brody Kaminski, Alex Lopez, and Dominic Chartrand also scored. 

It was a weekend to remember on the court for the Ste. Rose Celtics junior varsity boys basketball team. 

They hit the road for a tournament in Carman and have come back home to the Parkland as champions. In the team's two-game round-robin, they downed Teulon, 52-36, and Dufferin Christian, 69-32. 

That led the Celtics to the gold medal game where they went up against the host Cougars and they ultimately were no match for Ste. Rose. The Celtics came up clutch defensively and found a way to get the job done offensively in a 61-55 win to capture the tournament's title. 

The team's coach this year is Nathan Zadorozny. 

The Dauphin Kings pulled off one of their biggest comebacks of the season on Saturday night to earn two points.

Falling down 3-0 to the lowly Winnipeg Blues, Dauphin scored three straight goals to tie it before winning the game in overtime, 4-3.

The win gave Dauphin three of four points over their two-game weekend homestand after a 3-2 shootout loss to Waywayseecappo on Friday night.

Rylan Gibbs kept up with his consistent play as of late as his sixth of the season with just more than five minutes left tied the game before Cayden Glover ended the game with his 13th of the season, 2:50 into overtime while Dauphin was on the power play. It was Cayden's second goal of the game while Havryil Simchuk also scored for the Kings. 

The Kings are now 27-13-1-1 on the season as they prepare to head to Waywayseecappo on Tuesday. 

The Dauphin Kings secured only a single point on Friday.

Playing Waywayseecappo, the Wolverines downed the Kings, 3-2, in a shootout.

Gabriel Bugeaud and Cayden Glover scored for Dauphin while Cole Sheffield was brilliant once again, making 34 saves.

The Kings welcome the Blues to town Saturday. 

The Parkland U18 Rangers hopes of making the playoffs were minimized significantly on Thursday evening.

Playing in Yellowhead, Parkland failed to get anything going offensively all night long as they were blanked in a 5-0 defeat. Chase Glover made 36 saves in the defeat. The Rangers had just three shots in the second period and 22 overall while they went 0-for-2 on the power play and just 5-for-7 on the penalty kill.

Sitting nine points back of a playoff spot with seven games left, the Rangers will have to likely win six or seven of those games in order to even have a chance at qualifying for the playoffs. 

Greg Todoruk and his foursome are just one win away from advancing to the playoff round in Stonewall.

Competing in the Viterra Championships, Greg, Darcy, Terron Stykalo, and Rob Fisher won their second straight game. On Thursday, they downed Team Freeman, 7-5. They scored two in the ninth and stole a single in the 10th to record the win.

They will now go up against Team Calvert in a qualifier game on Friday morning at 8:30. Team Calvert is one of the tournament's top seeds. 

Other qualifier games will see the event's top-ranked team Reid Carruthers go up against Team Smith while Team Walter will battle Team McDonald. Team Wiebe will also go up against Team Richter for a spot in the playoff round. 

They battled hard; however, they're coming back to the Parkland early.

Earning a spot to play in the Viterra Curling Championships in Stonewall, Team Toews of Dauphin was ousted from the event after an 8-6 loss on Thursday morning. After scoring three in the eighth and forcing Team Irving to just a single point in the ninth, Team Toews found themselves down by just a single point heading into the 10th end. Ultimately, Team Irving stole a single point to advance in the event.

Team Toews, consisting of Glenn, Nick Ogryzlo, Cory Toews, and Steve Procyshyn lost their first match against Team McDonald, 9-2. The foursome will now travel back to Dauphin after representing the community on the provincial stage. 

Team Todoruk of Dauphin continues on. 

The Grandview Agricultural Community Centre will be turning 69 this year which means in 2025, the heartbeat of Grandview will be turning 70 years old.

As upgrades are very much needed at the rink, a group of dedicated community members has begun raising funds for a new ice plant for the facility. New boards are also needed at the rink and they come in at a cost of about $250,000. 

Raising these funds without help will be a very difficult challenge and that's where Kraft Hockeyville comes in. Every year, they give one lucky community $250,000 to upgrade their arena and Alia is hoping that the GACC will be crowned champions this year.

At this point, you're asked to share your stories and photos about the GACC. 

"Like any small town in Canada, the GACC is where it's at in the winter," said Alia Marcinkow. "It's always the hub of the community and we want that to continue for many years to come, hopefully for another 70 years."

The deadline to post your stories and photos about why you love the GACC is February 17. From there, the Kraft Hockeyville committee will narrow things down and choose a group of finalists. 

"It's a place not only where kids are learning leadership skills, it's a place where parents come together to chat and have a great time," ended Marcinkow. "No one is ever down at the GACC, it's a pretty special place and we would love to be crowned Kraft Hockeyville champions."

So if you've ever spent time at the GACC, head to Kraft Hockeyville to share your great stories and photos and in turn, you could become a reason why $250,000 in upgrades could be on the way to the heartbeat of Grandview in just a few short months.

The Viterra Championships are underway at the Veteran's Memorial Sports Complex and what a start Team Todoruk is off to.

The Dauphin rink won their first game of the tournament against Team Irwin, 9-7. Featuring Darcy and Greg Todoruk as well as Terron Stykalo and Rob Fisher, the foursome from Dauphin got off to quite the start in their first game as they took an 8-1 lead after six ends.

Team Irwin fought back to come within a single point heading into the 10th end without hammer; however, the Dauphin foursome put together a perfect 10th end to finish with a single point as they clinched the victory. Their next game goes on Thursday at 12:15 against Team Freeman. If they win that game, they will advance to an A-qualifier on Friday morning. 

The tournament features 32 of the top Manitoba men's teams, excluding Team Dunstone, as they have already qualified for the Brier. The provincials this week is a double knockout format.
