One night after Justen Close and the Kindersley Klippers shutout the Notre Dame Hounds, the Hounds turned the tables on Wednesday as this time Jacob Standen made 29 saves for the shutout, and the Hounds (19-8-1-3) beat the Klippers 5-0.
That lifts Notre Dame back into top spot in the Olympic Buildings Division.
Leading the way was captain Chance Longjohn with a goal and two assists. Fresh off an audition at Canada West camp in Calgary, Jared Hamm (1g-1a) and Tim Gould both scored. Marshall Wilton and Zack Kosteniuk rounded it out.
After back to back games in Wilcox, the Klippers (13-8-2-2) take Thursday off before a pair of games in Weyburn on Friday and Saturday.
Ben Hiltz scored twice to lead the Weyburn Red Wings to a 4-2 road win over the Melville Millionaires.
Tyran Brown (1g-1a) and Erik Olson also hit the net while Arik Weersink made 24/26 saves in goal for the Red Wings (17-11-2-0). The Wings are back to being just one point back of Estevan for the Viterra Division lead.
Clayton Eisler and Isaac Embree did the scoring for the Millionaires (10-18-0-2) who have now dropped three in a row.
The Melfort Mustangs picked up their 20th win of the season with a 4-1 decision in La Ronge.
Daniel Chartrand opened the scoring for the Ice Wolves (6-20-0-2) in the first period, but it was all Melfort after that.
Colin Schmidt, Carson Albrecht and Reed Gunville all struck in the second period, and Rock Rushkowski rounded things out in the third. Evan Plotnik picked up the win in goal for the Mustangs (20-5-4-1).
