SGEU MVP of the Week: Zac Sommers, Melfort Mustangs

The Melfort Mustangs have been red hot as of late winning 5 of their last 6 and getting points in their last 6 games. A big reason for their 3 point weekend against the Flin Flon Bombers was the play of forward Zac Sommers. In both games this weekend Sommers played a big part in the Mustangs offence, finding the back of the net 4 times and adding 2 assists. The 18-year-old has already doubled his stats from his rookie season as he sits with 14 goals and 13 assists this year, ranking 10th in SJHL scoring.

The Yorkton Terriers went 2-1 this weekend and a big reason for that was the play of starting goaltender Caleb Allen.

Allen is now 9-9 on the season with a 3.63 GAA and a .901 SV%. This is Allen’s 2nd time winning Sasktel Goalie of the Week award this season.
