Saskatchewan teams were not able to bring home gold at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships in Nova Scotia over the weekend.

Despite having a 5-2 lead heading into the third period, the Saskatchewan male team dropped a 6-5 decision in overtime to British Columbia in the gold medal contest.

Jayden Dureau led Saskatchewan offensively in that one, as he recorded three points. Tanner Martin made 33 saves in a losing cause.

Meantime, the Saskatchewan female team was able to come back with a bronze medal. Saskatchewan dumped B.C. 4-3 in extra time to claim bronze.

Cassidy Carlson of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band played defence for Saskatchewan.  She says she had a blast playing for her province.

“It was an amazing experience, even just being somewhere I haven’t been before,” said Carlson.

Anna-Leise King scored the winning goal 17:27 into the extra session. Janae Neufeld came up with 29 saves for the victory in net.
