The Battlefords Sharks had good news to report about the future of one of their star players.
It was announced that Haylie Biever had committed to Minot State Beavers women’s hockey for 2020/21.
Biever plays goal for the Sharks and is also the team’s captain this season.
The Sharks were also back in action following the holiday break, playing two games in Regina versus the Rebels at Co-operators Center.
The first game Saturday saw Regina win 6-0 as the Sharks couldn’t get their offence going. Regina outshot the Sharks 52-25.
The second game on Sunday saw Regina beat the Sharks 3-1 in a game that wasn’t decided until the final two minutes.
Kiana McNinch got the lone goal for the Sharks in the third period shorthanded to tie the game, but a power play goal from Tavia Terry and then from Sydney Pedersen late in the game gave Regina the win.
The Sharks were again outshot 40-25 and goaltender Biever was named one of the three stars for stopping 37 of the 40 shots.
The next action for the Sharks is at home Saturday and Sunday to Notre Dame and Weyburn at Battleford Arena.
