The Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League champions wasted no time making a statement at the 2018 Telus Cup Western Regional Championship in Thunder Bay, Ont.
The Notre Dame Hounds put together a dominating 11-0 win over the Kenora Thistles on Thursday afternoon in the opening game of the round robin.
Cordel Larson had a hat trick and five points to lead the way for the Hounds, while Luke Mylymok picked up a hat trick as well and Cole Stevenson found the back of the net twice.
Coalson Wolford and Stanley Cooley had three assists each.
