The Hanley Saber Football team had another exceptional season this fall finishing the year with an 8 win 1 loss record, losing in a barn-burner of a provincial semi-final game 74-64 to a talented Lemberg team. The Sabers would like to again thank the communities of Hanley, Dundurn and surrounding areas for the incredible support that was demonstrated throughout the season.

The team would like to congratulate our graduating players on their success this year and thank them for their contributions to the club over their years with the team. They are: Dion, Michael, John, Jae, Joel, Kody, and Kirk.

We would like to thank everyone who helped with the upgrades to the field this year – the completed clubhouse and new bleachers and scoreboard: The Saskatchewan Roughriders, James and Marie Mann, Mike Prosofsky, Kaleb Freeden, Ryan Grindheim, Derek Libke, Troy Haroldson, Elance Steel, Darice Carlson and the town of Hanley.

Also, a huge thank you to our parents who have volunteered and helped out wherever needed (and especially Lisa Ashdown for coordinating the concession booth)!!

The football team capped off a fantastic regular season this past Thursday with their exciting win over Gull Lake. The Sabers downed the previously unbeaten Lions in a nail-biting 36-32 victory to finish their regular season undefeated for the second straight year. In what was perhaps the most exciting Sabers game in recent memory, Hanley was led offensively by Kody, Jesse and Joel, while the defense played their strongest game of the season by far, shutting down the powerful Gull Lake offence, including a dramatic last minute goal-line stand to secure the win. The playoffs begin on Saturday, October 19th, as the Sabers host fourth place Central Butte; we hope to see the amazing community and school support continue as we begin what we hope to be a long and successful playoff run.
