HUMBOLDT, Saskatchewan (AP) -- This shattered town mourned its revered local youth hockey team, trying to come to grips with a devastating highway accident that killed 15 players and team personnel and injured the other 14 people on their bus.

People filed into the team's home arena Sunday night for a vigil, filing up entry steps piled with flowers, jerseys and personal mementos in a makeshift memorial.

At the vigil, Sean Brandow, the local pastor and team chaplain, described how he happened upon the horrific accident scene Friday night and heard sounds of people he knew dying after a semi-trailer slammed into the bus taking the team to a playoff game.

Canada town gets new shock with dead player misidentified

Norman Mattock, a longtime season ticket holder, said his neighbor housed player Morgan Gobeil, a defenseman who was severely injured.

Three players who stayed with the same family all died in the crash, Mattock added. ''They lost them all.''

Players become part of the community fabric, doing volunteer work or serving in restaurants, he said.

''They lost them all,'' Mattock said.

The Broncos were a close-knit team who dyed their hair blond for the playoffs. Garinger, the team president, said the team won't disband. The home page of the team's website was replaced with a silhouette of a man praying beneath the Broncos' logo of a mustang.

''We're devastated,'' said Randolph MacLEAN, the hockey club's vice president. ''At the center of this, we have 15 souls who'll never go home again. We have 29 lives that will never be the same.''

He said that as is the case with small town hockey across Canada, Humboldt's arena is not just a recreation facility, but a focus of community life with the hockey team at its center.

''It's an energy that spreads through the town,'' he said.
