First Togo Terriers’ home game in 20 years said “awesome”

            From several accounts it was an “awesome” time at the Togo rink on January 14 when for the first time in 20 years, the Togo Terriers hockey team played a game on home ice.

            The Terriers, who use the Broda Sportsplex in Kamsack when the natural ice in the Togo arena is not ready, suit up to play once a week, usually Fridays, but on January 14 the Canora Flames were to in Togo for the game.

            “It was a great time at the rink,” said Amanda Burback, Togo recreation director. “The atmosphere in the rink was all hockey at home. It was a good time and people said that the wings that were served were the best.”

            Although “fun” is stressed over goals scored, the game ended with a win of 11-8 for Canora, Burback said.

            To date three more home games have been scheduled for the Terriers. They were to play a Calder team on Saturday, and then will be playing a game on February 11 and February 25.
