The Kindersley Sr. Klippers remain undefeated after five games this season, and the team has opened its home schedule with a big win over the Biggar Nationals.

Kindersley played two games last week including a mid-week affair on Nov. 21 in Unity and the home opener against Biggar on Nov. 24 at the Co-op Arena. The Sr. Klippers held a special ceremony before Saturday’s game to honour four former players.

The team has retired five numbers in honour of the team’s alumni players. The retired numbers belong to Don Jackson (#12), Wally Jackson (#14), Gary McManus (#6), Ed Young (#10) and Chuck Newmeyer (#1). Their names and numbers are on a banner that has been hung in the Co-op Arena.
