Graduating Flyers forward Michael Sofillas will suit up for the Huskies this season after earning a scholarship with the University of Saskatchewan (CIS). The Morden native had 35 points (14 goals – 21 assists) in 54 games last season split between the Flyers and the Dauphin Kings.

Sofillas returned to the Manitoba Junior Hockey League for the 2013-2014 season after playing three seasons with the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the Western Hockey League. He was a leader both on and off the ice for the Orange and Black after being acquired in a trade midway through last season.

The Huskies play in the CIS (Canadian Inter-University Sport) which is the top collegiate hockey league in Canada. Sofillas will be a Geology Major at U of S.

The Flyers would like to congratulate Mike for his decision to continue his hockey career and education at the University of Saskatchewan and wish him all the best in the future.

Mohawks Successful In Defending Border West Title

mohawkschampionships 2014Your 2014 Border West Baseball League Champion Morden Mohawks

The Morden Mohawks are back-to-back Border West Baseball League champions after a thrilling 5-1 victory over the Baldur Regals Tuesday night in Baldur. The Mohawks won the best-of-five final series 3 games to 2.

"It feels good," shared Mohawks second basemen Bryson Reimer. "It happened last year too, and it's just a great feeling to have. We would've rather have done it at home, but we got a good win on the road."

The Mohawks put Monday's 7-1 loss behind them and forged on on the road to get the win.

"Pretty much a carbon copy of the first four games of the series," shared Mullin. "It was really tight going into the final innings. It was 1-0 in the fifth for them, and it was a matter of which team could break out first. We managed to find that five run fifth, and that was enough for us to take it home."

The Mohawks scored all of their runs in the fifth inning, and sent ten batters to the plate.

"It just seemed like we stayed positive throughout the whole inning," stated right fielder Kevin Rach. "We never got down on ourselves. When ever an inning ended we were picking each other up, letting each other know we were having good at bats. Once the pitcher got a little wild we just knew that we needed to take our walks, and get our hits when we could get them."

Derek Holenski, who recorded all three wins in the series on the mound, pitched a complete game three hitter, while striking out seven batters.

"It was unreal. He won five or six games in the playoffs, which is absolutely phenomenal for a pitcher to do. All three games in the series, all on the road, and to three hit them in the game is awesome. He was dominant out there again. He's been our ace, and our go to guy. He did exactly what we wanted and hoped he do for us. It was just a classic performance, in probably the most pressure packed situation."

The Mohawks and Regals were road warriors in this series, with the visiting team winning every game in the series.

"I don't know what it is about being on the road," shared Mullin. "We all just seem to pull together. I wish we could duplicate it at home, but something just seems to click for us on the road."
