Jets oh-for-two in opening weekend

It was back-to-back losses for the Morinville Junior B Jets on their opening weekend.

They fell 3-1 and 6-1 against the Beaumont Chiefs in their road and home outings. The Jets accumulated 86 minutes in penalties in those two games, 68 of them in the season opener Friday night.

Ky Buchanan got the Jets’ single goal Friday night, assisted by Josh Mcrae and Dylan McFadridge. McRae got the Jets’ only goal Sunday night unassisted.

The Jets play the Chiefs again on Friday on the road and Sunday in Morinville at the old arena at 7:30 p.m.
There will be a two-week break after that, followed by back-to-back games against the North Edmonton Red Wings.
Morinville Youth Basketball are searching for coaches for this season. Teams have been running since early September and they are in need of coaches for a variety of ages, from U7 to U18.

The Association’s practices run once per week and they have strict COVID-19 protocols in place.

Those interested in being involved can email or contact them through their Facebook page.

School sports cancelled until after Christmas

Four area school divisions released a joint press release last Wednesday, announcing the cancellation of school sports.

The joint release from Conseil scolaire Centre-Nord, Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools, St. Albert Public Schools and Sturgeon Public Schools says the divisions made the joint decision to postpone all school-based extracurricular junior and senior high athletics until after Christmas. 

The release says the decision was not made lightly but was necessary due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in area communities.
