PureChem Cougars ready to pounce on new season

Flashback to November 3, 2017 when the Carlyle PureChem Cougars opened their 2017/2018 season with a convincing 6-0 win over the Arcola-Kisbey Combines, who had just returned back to the league after a leave of absence in 2016. With about 740 boisterous fans in attendance, the local Cougars saw Kelly Currie score the first goal of the season and goaltender Josh Hohn record the shutout. By the end of the season, the Cougars had battled hard for the final seed of the playoffs, but came up short against the tough, top-seeded team during the 2017/2018 regular season - the Carnduff Red Devils.

So with all teams now prepared for the kick off of a new season this week, November through to February for the Big Six Hockey League (www.bigsixhockey.com) brings a renewed optimism by all ten teams, yes that would be ten with the addition of the Kipling/Windthorst Oil Kings. While the fans will see a reduced regular season schedule compared to the 24 games last year, they can expect some exciting and tight races for playoff spots all season long.
