Guillaume St. Onge scored 47 seconds into overtime, and the Notre Dame Hounds became the first team not from Yorkton to defeat the league-leading Battlefords North Stars this season, 3-2 (OT) at the Duncan McNeil Arena.
Jarrett Penner added a goal and an assist, while Cole Stevenson tied things up in the third period, forcing extra time. Riley Kohonick had another nice performance, making 36 of 38 saves in goal for the Hounds (12-16-2-1), who snap a three game losing streak and sit one point back of the eighth and final playoff spot.

Luke Nkwama opened the scoring late in the first period for the Millionaires (9-17-2-4) but that was all the offense they would muster. Zach McIntyre added one assist in his Melville debut, after being part of a trade that sent Luke Spadafora back to Humboldt on December 1st.
