1-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (14-5-0-2) -2-
Winners of five straight and nine of ten, they lead the league with a +36 goal differential.
2-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (16-6-2) -3-
Winners of four straight and have earned 17 of a possible 20 points in their last ten.
3-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS (12-6-1-3) -5-
They’ve been, deceptively, consistent since the first weekend of the year.
4-MELFORT MUSTANGS (13-6-1) -8-
Great week from their goaltender (Arps) boosted them into a solid position where just three points separate three teams in the Sherwood Division.
5-NIPAWIN HAWKS (14-7-0-1) -1-
Back to back losses drop them from top perch, but this is more indicative of how close the league is.
6-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS (13-6-2-1) -4-
We will see if they’ve weathered their first real slump of the season and can regain their earlier form.
7-ESTEVAN BRUINS (12-12) -6-
Bruins split four games last week, but look to have regained control of top spot in the Viterra Division.
8-YORKTON TERRIERS (10-9-1) -7-
Haven’t taken advantage of their games in hand and now have a key weekend match up against Estevan on the horizon.
9-WEYBURN RED WINGS (8-11-2) -11-
Wings have put together a couple of wins in a row and nobody is really out of it in the Viterra, it seems, no matter how long the slump lasts.
10-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (10-11-2-2) -9-
Struggled to start the year, got hot and looked poise to surge up the standings, but now are winless in their last five to stall their climb.
11-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES (6-14-2-2) -10-
Winners in three of their last five overall and haven’t been an easy out in the games they’ve lost.
12-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (6-17) -12-
Ice Wolves have dropped their last six, but in their defense, they play in a division where the other three teams are a combined 41-18-1-3.
