(Jesse Mireau with a 6 point night Sunday in Kindersley)

The Melville Millionaires are starting to show they belong in the upper echelon of the SJHL's Sherwood Conference.

They're 4-0-1 in their last 5 games, after taking 5 of a possible 6 points on a road trip to Kindersley-Battleford-Kindersley on the weekend.

They capped the weekend (after Saturday's 5-4 SO loss in BAT) with a 7-2 triumph in Kindersley, and the Millionaires top line cashed in big, combining for 12 points.

Half of them went to Jesse Mireau, who had a break out night with 4-goals and 6-points. Russell Trudeau, who was held pointless on Saturday for the first time in Melville Colours, scored twice and added an assist on Sunday, giving him 10 points (7g-3a) in 5 games since coming over. Ian McNulty chipped in three assists. Michael Desjarlais had Melville's other goal.

Blake Voth played both games in Kindersley on the trip, and stopped 34/36 on Sunday, making his early numbers 2-0, 1.50 GAA, .955%.

The Mils are now knocking on the door of the two teams they're chasing. They sit 3 points back of Estevan with 2 games in hand, and 5 behind Weyburn with 3 in hand.

Melville's back at home on Wednesday against Notre Dame.


The Wayway Wolverines bounced back from a disappointing home ice loss to Selkirk on Saturday, by heading into Dauphin on Sunday, and beating the Kings 4-3 in overtime.

Curtis Veitch potted the OT winner, while Jean-Michel-Naud, Stephane Robidoux and Shane Goodrunning had the others.

Brett Pinkerton and Thomas Ward-Cardinal had 2 assists, while Cory Simons stopped 41/44 shots.


The Swan Valley Stampeders dropped a 5-2 decision at home against OCN Sunday afternoon.

Justin Valentino put the Stamps ahead with the only goal of the first period, but OCN scored three unanswered to begin the 2nd. Dylan Reimer also scored for Swan.

The Stamps are off until the weekend, when they have a tough 3-in-3, at Selkirk, Winkler & Portage.
