The Notre Dame Hounds played in a 3-2 overtime game for a second straight night, but unlike Tuesday’s win over the league-leading Battlefords North Stars, the Hounds fell 3-2 (OT) on the road to the Weyburn Red Wings, who went into Wednesday’s action last in the overall standings.
Quinton Hill’s first SJHL goal came with 23 seconds left in overtime, while Shayde Peterson and Jevon Schwean also scored for the Red Wings (12-19-1-0), and Noah Decottignies made 20/22 saves in the win.
Jackson Tillinghast opened the scoring for the Hounds (12-16-3-1), notching his first SJHL goal in the opening frame. Braydon Iwaschuk also scored and Logan Dyck stopped 22/25 shots. Notre Dame sits tied with Kindersley for the 8th and final playoff position.
The Battlefords North Stars have four losses (6-3-1) in their last 10 games, and for a team with an .855 winning percentage, you might almost call that a cold streak as they picked up one of a possible four points in Notre Dame and Estevan this week, falling 3-2 to the Bruins on Wednesday.
Keenan Rancier stopped 29 of the 31 shots he faced, while Tanner Manz opened the scoring just 11 seconds in, and Jayden Davis and Griffin Asham-Moroz added first period goals for the Bruins (11-13-2-1). 17-year-old rookie defenseman Alex Von Sprecken added two assists.
Elijah Loon-Stewardson and Matthias Urbanksi scored for the North Stars (26-4-1-0). After the Bruins jumped ahead 3-1 midway through the first period, Adam Dmyterko came on in relief and stopped all 26 shots he faced.
The Stars head home to start a weekend home and home with Kindersley on Friday.
