Melville and Swan Valley did their part on Friday.
Saturday, the Yorkton Terriers and Wayway Wolverines both did their fans proud as well.
The Terriers rolled to their 8th win in their last 10 games, with a 4-2 win over Kindersley. Only four Terriers hit the scoresheet, but it was enough for two points. Defenseman Davis Vandane scored twice, Clarke Breitkreuz and Robbie Ciolfi each had 1g-1a, and Brent Struble picked up 3 assists.
Yorkton was out-shot 29-21, but Devin Peters made 27/29 saves to earn the win, his 15th on the campaign.
The Terriers are on home ice again Tuesday against Battleford, before heading to Weyburn for the Showcase next weekend.
The Wayway Wolverines won their second straight game, a 5-1 decision over Steinbach.
Shane Goodrunning scored twice, his 20th and 21st on the year, Paul Vandevelde had 3 assists, Stephane Robidoux had 1g-1a, while Brett Pinkerton and Pierre Landry rounded out the scoring.
Riley Feser made 20/21 saves for his second straight win.
Dauphin's no longer the team Wayway's chasing for 5th place. The Kings jumped from 5th to 3rd in the Sherwood with a win over OCN on Saturday. Neepawa's now the team in Wayway's windshield, 6 points up, and with 5 games in hand.
The Wolverines have another home game on Tuesday, when Winkler comes to town.
What would wrap up a PERFECT weekend? A Rider Grey Cup would do it!!!
I fast-forwarded through the July 1st season opener between the Riders and Als the other day on my Sasktel Max. Remember Louie Sakoda? He opened the Rider season with an illegal kickoff out of bounds. But is he a better FG kicker than Warren Kean/Eddie Johnson? Kinda hoping it doesn't come down to a last second kick this year!
