HOUNDS BOOK TICKET TO FLIN FLON
The Notre Dame Hounds are moving on to the SJHL Quarter-Finals, thanks to Tuesday night’s 5-2 victory in Melfort. The Hounds took the Best-of-Five Wild Card Series in four games.

Miles Warkentine scored in his final SJHL game for the Mustangs, and Carson Albrecht rounded out the scoring for the two-time defending Canalta Cup champions.
The four SJHL Quarter-Finals will all start Friday night.
