Local footballers headed to Winnipeg for weekend

Part of Sask contingent at Red River Cup

The Red River Cup is this weekend in Winnipeg and that means a number of local football players will be headed to the Manitoba city.

The nine are among 40 players selected to make-up two Saskatchewan teams for the Red River Cup in Winnipeg, where teams will player six-aside football.

The nine players are; offensive line Alyssa Sander, Shay-Lynn Pelletier, and Katelynne Hoffman, Austen Dubreuil, quarterback, Brooke Hannotte, running back, Camryn Dubreuil and Katelyn Dixon-Appelton on the defensive line Caelan MacLean, linebacker, and Makayla Pelletier, defensive back, and their coaches will need to adapt on the run.

Local coaches involved include Chris Sander, Daryl Zimmer, Jeff Hannotte, and Tyrell MacLean.

The teams will play some ‘mini-games’ to set the seeding, then move to full games for the semi-finals, leading up to the Red River Cup final July 17.

The local girls made the Saskatchewan teams at a camp in Melville, where the majority of the players were from the region, Melville, Moosomin and Yorkton, but players from Regina, Saskatoon and Tisdale were also selected, said MacLean.
