It’s now nine straight wins in the month of October for the Weyburn Red Wings, who resumed their four game road trip Friday with a 4-2 win in Flin Flon.
The teams traded goals twice in the first forty minutes and the Red Wings (11-2-1-0) went up for good in the third when Carson Scheschuk and Cole Woodliffe (1g-2a) scored. Erik Olson scored the first two for the Wings and Carter Phair made 34/36 saves.
Calvon Boots (1g-1a) and Ethan Daniels replied for the home side.
The Wings will try to cap a perfect month when they wrap up their four game swing in Nipawin on Saturday night.
16-year-old Yorkton Terrier goalie Nolan Maier surrendered five goals Friday, but it was a star-worthy performance as the 2001-born tender faced 72 shots from the Battlefords North Stars, as the Stars kept their unbeaten in regulation streak going with a 5-2 decision.
The Stars (9-0-1-0) jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, out-shooting the Terriers 28-3 in the first period.
Layne Young and Dakota Huebner each had a goal and two assists. Keith Anderson (1g-1a), Chaseton Braid (1g-1a) and Levi Kleiboer did the rest of the scoring and Kolby Matthews stopped 17/19 shots.
Replying for the Terriers (3-11-2-0) late in the second period were Cole Keenleyside and William Brochu. The two teams battle again on Saturday.
Brandan Arnold scored a pair of goals and the Nipawin Hawks (9-3-1-1) doubled up the Notre Dame Hounds 4-2.
Josh McDougall (1g-1a) and Brett Harasymuk added the others. Declan Hobbs turned away 31 of the 33 shots he faced.
Chaz Smedsrud notched his 10th of the season for the Hounds (9-4-1-1) and Luke Mylymok added his first.
