The Prince Albert NAPA Raiders won’t be heading back to the Saskatchewan Hockey Association pee wee division finals after they were eliminated from further play in a second-round match-up against the Humboldt Broncos.
The Raiders, who were finalists in each of the last two years before falling to Yorkton for the provincial title, lost the opening game of the two-game, total-goal series 5-3 on Sunday and then were crushed 15-4 in the second game in Humboldt on Tuesday.
Braden Schneider, Jack Kowblick, Kevin Ledoux and Dylan Scriven scored for the Raiders in the Tuesday game.
The season is not over for the Raiders as they still have some work to do in the Centre-Four Hockey League. The Raiders, who are 8-6-2 in regular-season play, return to action on Feb. 1 when they head back to Humboldt. The Raiders then play at home on Feb. 2 when they will host the Battlefords at 4 p.m. at the Steuart Arena.
Prince Albert concludes its regular schedule on Feb. 23 with the playoffs to follow.
