Sandy Lake Storm takes the inaugeral KHL title

Keewaytinook Hockey League finally finished their first year of action in a tournament style of play. The tournament was held in Sandy Lake on April 3 to 6, 2003.

Sandy Lake Storm of the Keewaytinook Hockey League (KHL) went undefeated in KHL's inaugeral season. Storm finished off the regular season with a record of 24-0, scoring 359 goals and only allowing 69 goals.

Sandy Lake Storm continued their domination over the other KHL teams that they faced in the play-offs and Championship game. The first team they faced was Kitchinoomaykoosib Icehawks (KI Icehawks) in a best out of three format. Sandy Lake went on to defeat KI Icehawks two straight games.

Storm then met the Kasabonika Jr. Kings in the Championship Bear Cup. Kasabonika had defeated Wunnimun Whiskeyjack in a hard fought play-off series that had to go to the deciding third game.

In the Championship game Sandy Lake Storm had a battling team to contend with. At the end of the first period the game was tied at 3 a piece and by the end of second period the score was 10-5. But the score did not indicate the closeness of the game. Storm held their composure and kept pounding the Kasabonika netminder with shot after shot. The eventual final score was 16 to 8 for Sandy Lake Storm.
