STARS & BOMBERS BOTH UNBEATEN IN REGULATION IN 10+
Flin Flon’s Greyson Reitmeier sits just two points shy of the SJHL scoring lead after a two goal, four point performance, in the Bombers’ 6-2 win over the La Ronge Ice Wolves on Saturday night.
Reitmeier now has 60 points on the season, while Notre Dame’s Ben Duperreault continues to lead the league with 62.
The Bombers (30-10-2-3) picked up their 30th win of the season, and are now 9-0-0-1 in their last 10 games.
Nate Hooper (1g-1a), Teal Sobkowicz, Jason Lavallee and Mason Etter also scored and Gunnar Neilsen made 29/31 saves in the win. The Bombers open a four games in five nights road trip Wednesday in Melfort, a trip that will also send them to Melville, Notre Dame and Estevan.
Craig Pejkovic (1g-1a) and Trey Doell did the scoring for the Ice Wolves (6-34-1-4).
Connor Swystun (1g-1a) scored 51 seconds into overtime and the Humboldt Broncos picked up two points in a 5-4 (OT) win in Yorkton.
The Broncos took four points in their weekend home and home with Yorkton, winning 5-2 on home ice on Friday, while improving to 25-19-0-1.
Humboldt raced out to a 3-0 lead in the first period. Chris Van Os-Shaw scored his 32nd goal of the season and added an assist, while Trevor Posch also had 1g-1a. Matthieu Gomercic and Michael Korol did the rest of the Broncos’ scoring and Garrett Mason made 36/40 saves.
LJ Naccarto, Kaleb Bell, Corwin Stevely and Shane Sherban scored for the Terriers (20-22-4-0). Sherban’s goal came with 2:45 remaining to force overtime. Their single point puts them into a tie with Melfort for 7th place overall, one point back of Weyburn.
The Estevan Bruins got back into the win column with a 5-4 victory over the Melfort Mustangs.
Matt McNeil scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season and added one assist for the Bruins (28-14-0-1). Kaelan Holt had three assists while Lynnden Pastachak (1g-1a), Hayden Guilderson and Michael McChesney rounded out the scoring.
Sam Houston, Miles Warkentine, Rock Rushkowski and Kalem Zary responded for the Mustangs (19-20-2-4), who have now dropped three in a row which keeps them a single point out of a top six spot.
The Battlefords North Stars pumped 50 shots on goal, and improved to 10-0-1-0 in their last 11, with a 6-1 win over the visiting Melville Millionaires.
Reed Delainey and Ben Allen each put up a goal and an assist in the win, while Jared Blaquiere, Layne Young and Keaton Holinaty chipped in goals and Taryn Kotchorek made 21/22 saves for the North Stars (37-7-1-0).
Damian Bentz, a big bright spot for the Millionaires (17-24-2-0) since being acquired, scored his 10th goal of the season in the third period.
Melville looks to salvage their trip Sunday with another trip to Kindersley. They opened the trip in Kindersley with a 6-4 loss on Friday.
The Stars are also in action again Sunday, rounding out their two game schedule, as the league leaders look to put an end to Nipawin’s seven game winning streak as they visit The Cage at 6:00.
