All of our local teams were in action, and at one point, it looked like three of them might win. By the end of the night, only the Wayway Wolverines were victorious.
The Wolverines took on the Stampeders in Swan Valley, and on GX94.
Wayway led 1-0 after the first period on a Tyler Posch PP goal, and blew it wide open in the second, scoring three times, while out-shooting the Stamps 17-4 in the middle frame. Zaine Walker, Ashley Howie and Thomas Ward-Cardinal scored in the second, while Pierre Landry had two assists.
Josh Switzer had his shutout big spoiled by Stampeder defenseman Colton Magwood, who scored his first MJHL goal in the third period, on the powerplay.
Switizer stopped 31/32 shots, while the Wolverines put 38 pucks on Jayson Argue at the other end.
With that, the Stamps and Wolverines have identical 3-3-0-1 records, heading into the MJHL Showcase Weekend in Winnipeg.
The Melville Millionaires stormed out to a 2-0 lead in Estevan after the first period, and it nearly stayed that way through 40, until Calder Neufeld buried his 10th of the season with just four seconds remaining in period two.
Neufeld would add his 11th before the night was out, and Dylan Smith scored 28 seconds into overtime, giving Estevan the 4-3 (OT) win.
Jesse Mireau, Michael Sagen and John Stechyshyn scored for the Millionaires, while Alex Sirard made 33/37 saves. Three of Estevan's goals came on the powerplay, including the overtime winner.
The Yorkton Terriers dropped their third straight road game, as they fell 4-2 in Melfort.
The Terriers got on the board first, as Ryan Sookro scored his first of two on the night on a late first period powerplay.
Kamil Przepiorka made 22 stops in goal.
The Terriers host Melville on Friday, and visit the Millionaires on Saturday, as they play their first home and home of the season.
