Brad Girard scored his first two SJHL goals and added one assist, and the Battlefords North Stars edged the Estevan Bruins 5-4, ending a modest two game losing streak for the Stars (13-3-1-0).

Chaseton Braid (1g-1a), Matthias Urbanski and MacGregor Sinclair also scored and Taryn Kotchorek turned away 31/35 shots.

Jake Tesarowski (1g-1a), Kaelan Holt (1g-1a), Arthur Miller and Matthew Chekay replied for the Bruins (14-7-2-0).


The Melfort Mustangs snuck past the visiting Kindersley Klippers 3-2 at the Northern Lights Palace.

Zach Anderson, Andrew Thompson and Loch Morrison scored for the Mustangs (15-4-3-1), and Justin Ball assisted on all three.  Evan Plotnik picked up the win making 30/32 saves.

On the other side, Jordan Funk and Will Van der Sloot scored, and Justen Close made 40/43 saves for the Klippers (10-7-2-1).


The Nipawin Hawks scored early and often as they rolled to a 5-1 win over the Flin Flon Bombers.

The Hawks (13-5-1-2) scored three times in the first period, and Michael Grant had a pair on the night.  Chad McCartney (1g-1a), Brandan Arnold (1g-1a) and Grant Baetsen also hit the net and Declan Hobbs needed just 16/17 saves.

Ethan Daniels scored the only goal for the Bombers (7-10-1-3), and Reese Jones came on in relief and stopped 23/25 shots.


The Notre Dame Hounds (13-5-1-3) scored five first period goals and coasted from there, to a 6-0 win over the La Ronge Ice Wolves.

Colby Brandt (2g-1a) and Marshall Wilton scored twice each while Chaz Smedsrud (1g-1a) and Curtis Wiebe added singles.

Jacob Standen turned in the shutout, making 17 saves, good for his second shutout of the season.

The Ice Wolves’ (5-13-0-2) three game road trip concludes Saturday in Melfort.  They’re 1-1-0 on the swing so far.


Arik Weersink won his third straight start, making 32/34 saves as the Weyburn Red Wings got by the Humboldt Broncos 5-2.

Weersink has allowed three goals during that three game stretch, while improving his personal mark to 8-4-0-1 on the year, to go with a 2.29 GAA and a .928%.

Tyran Brown, Jordan Kazymyra and Ben Hiltz all had a goal and an assist for the Red Wings (15-6-2-0), with Dawson Atamanchuk and Erik Olson adding the others.  The win keeps the Wings two points up on Estevan for the Viterra Division lead.

Replying for the Broncos (14-8-1-1) were Logan Hunter and Logan Boulet.  Conner Lukan picked up a pair of assists.
