Weyburn goalie Joseph Young did not have an SJHL win before Friday, by the end of Saturday, he had two. Young followed Friday’s 29/30 save performance against Melville, with his first SJHL shutout on Saturday, a 34-save performance in a 2-0 Wings’ win over the red-hot Yorkton Terriers.
Young made 63/64 saves over the weekend (.984%).
Liam Rutten opened the scoring in the first period, and Rhett Fry finished the scoring for the Wings (10-14-0-1) just over a minute into the second.
The Terriers () are still 5-2-1-0 in eight straight road games, and they’ll cap the streak of 9 straight away from home Wednesday in Notre Dame. Chantz Petruic saw his incredible point streak come to an end at 23 games, and he had 27g-25a-52p during those 23 games. This was only the second game all season Petruic was held off the scoresheet. Ryan Ouelette made 33/35 saves Saturday, his first regulation loss since returning to Yorkton (6-1-0, 2.00, .950%).
Dalton Dosch also earned his first SJHL shutout on Saturday, making 19/19 saves as the Nipawin Hawks edged the Notre Dame Hounds 1-0.
The 20-year-old Dosch was acquired from the MJHL’s Virden Oil Capitals last week, and he also earned his first win in three appearances since the move.
Rookie defenseman Mkyllan Couture scored his first SJHL in the first period, and that was all the offense Dosch and the Hawks (13-10-2-0) would need.
Riley Kohonick was the busier of the two tenders, making 29/30 saves in goal for the Hounds (10-12-2-1), who’ve now dropped three in a row.
Shawn Parkinson was about five minutes away from joining the Saturday shutout club when Kindersley scored a late one, but Parkinson and the Melfort Mustangs (15-6-2-1) still picked up a 4-1 home ice win over the Klippers. Parkinson finished with 33-saves on 34-shots.
Colton Schell had a goal and an assist, while Zach Anderson, Alex Rondeau and Adam Nobes also added goals.
Jaxon Georget replied for the Klippers (8-13-2-1) and Matt Sanker made 39/42 saves.
The La Ronge Ice Wolves doubled up the Humboldt Broncos 8-4 in a 2:00 matinee.
Defensemen Ben Manson (2g-1a) and Kalem Hanlon (3a) each had three point nights for the Ice Wolves (13-12-2-0), as did forward Jordan Mish (1g-2a).
Rowan Barnes (1g-1a), Booker Chacalias (1g-1a), Aaron Greyeyes, Kaiden Collumb, and Jake Gudjonson rounded out the scoring. Liam McGarva made 39/43 saves, improving his record to 12-and-5.
