The season is under way for the Battlefords Sharks in female midget AAA hockey.
But it could have been better for the Sharks as they opened regular season play in Gull Lake against the Swift Current Diamond Energy Wildcats. It was the Wildcats who prevailed 4-1.
Swift Current scored two in the first and two power play goals in the second to put the game out of reach. Lacey Schneider got the only Sharks goal in the third with Kyra Williamson assisting.
Shots favored the Wildcats in the game 38-14.
The Sharks now look forward to their home opener happening on Oct. 5 at Battleford Arena against Notre Dame. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
