The defending South Eastern Manitoba Hockey League Champion Morden Redskins improve to 5-4 on the season as they edge the Notre Dame Hawks 6-4 Thursday in Morden.

"It's just nice to get into the win column now," shared Redskins defence Dallas Holenski, who chipped in with a pair of assists in the game. "We were struggling to get some points lately, and it's kind of nice to get a few before Christmas. We aren't satisfied with that. We have to put a stretch together."

It took under a minute for the Hawks to get on the board as Jamie Mousseau was able to find the back of the net. Notre Dame held that 1-0 lead until roughly the half way point in the first when Chris Reimer beat Hawks net-minder Marc Lesage, who made 32 saves in a loosing effort. Before the period was over Steve Clark scored his first of two on the night, with Nicolas Chanel and Ryan Robidoux picking up the helpers.

"It was a bit of a surprise," explained Notre Dame head coach Rick Prejet. "We weren't expecting a high scoring game like this against Morden. The last time we played them it was a 2-1 game. Typically their games aren't really high scoring, so we weren't expecting a ten goals in the game. Having said that, our guys battled hard right to the end, and a couple of breaks could have changed the game pretty quick."

The second twenty saw the Redskins jump out in front with goals from Graham Leiding and Kelby Friesen. In the final five minutes of the middle frame Steve Clark, and Jason Yuel beat Morden's goaltender Reed Peters, who go the win and stopped 30 shots along the way.

The Hawks went into the final period leading the defending champions by one, but Morden scored three unanswered goals by Graham Leiding (2), Tyler Peers, and Clint Olsen (EN)

This was the second meeting between the two clubs. The first meeting was to open the season for both teams with Morden coming out on top 2-1, and tonight's game would have been a one goal game as well, until Olsen's empty net goal with :27 seconds left.

"I just think it's to good teams that work hard, and are evenly matched," shared Yuel. "The way Morden checks, they are going to keep you in a tight game. They want to slow the game down, keep the game close, and capitalize on your turnovers, and they did that tonight."

Notre Dame (4-5) will entertain the (8-1) league leading Winkler Royals Saturday, while the Redskins will prepare to head to Altona to square off with the Maroons Tuesday.

"Obviously, for one getting the puck to (Jayme) Janzen for sure," said Redskins coach Mark Thiessen. "They got a pretty good team over there, there's no question about that. I think the biggest thing is the physiological thing against Jayme right now, because he's kind of got our number. We have to battle hard to get it back."

laptop morden council

Morden City Council Members will be receiving laptops purchased by the city, to save paper as well as alleviate some frustrations on the part of the city's tech department.
    
Mayor Ken Wiebe says until now all the councillors have been working off a different device, with different capabilities. He adds, this was making it difficult for the technology department to maintain the software needed to make sure councillors had the information required.

"Everybody will have the same laptop, every laptop will have the same ability, every laptop will be programmed the same, and when it needs to be updated, it will be updated the same. It's just going to eliminate a lot of frustration," explained Wiebe.
    
He adds, at the end of their four year term Councillors can keep the laptop after all data has bee scrubbed from it, if their leaving council. If they will be staying on, the laptops will be upgraded at that time.

Katie Care's was in the giving spirit this week when it made a number of donations to organizations and groups which Katie used before her passing.

"One will go to Garden Valley Collegiate for $1,000, the second one will go to Ronald McDonald for $630, Candlelighters (Childhood Cancer Support Group) got $630, and (Winkler) Emmanuel Mennonite Church got $500," said Katie Care's Ruth Reimer.

Meanwhile, Candlelighter's representative Naomi Fehr stated they are very grateful for the contribution.

"We plan events throughout the year for families who have children who live with cancer," shared Fehr. "This covers all of Canada, and that's where this will be going to."

Reimer noted the money donated was the interest accumulated on the Katie Care's endowment fund held at the Winkler Community Foundation.

She explained why they chose these four organizations.
