Just a quick one as I want to get working on Melville's halfway report. Let's start with the positive:

The Swan Valley Stampeders have now won 4 of their last 5 games, and they're 2-and-0 on a tough 3 game road trip, after a 3-2 shootout win over the Winnipeg Blues. The Stamps were down 2-0 in the second period, but chipped their way back, with goals from Justin Valentino and Riley Hiebert.

Beau Taylor assisted on both regulation goals, while Derek Falloon scored the shootout winner.

Jayson Argue stopped all three Blues he faced in the shootout, and 24 of 26 shots the rest of the way.


The Yorkton Terriers' 4 game win streak is over, while the Battlefords North Stars saw theirs reach 10, as they blanked the Terriers 3-0.

The Terriers managed just 21 shots, and Dawson MacAuley, who's started all three meetings against the Stars so far this season, stopped 25/28 shots.

The Dogs were without forward Tyler Giebel, who was picked up by the WHL's Red Deer Rebels. He scored in his debut in Regina on Saturday.

Yorkton's back at it Sunday at 6:00 against Estevan.


Melville's now lost 4 straight, as they watched 2-0 and 3-2 leads slip away in Notre Dame, and lost 5-3 to the Hounds.

Shots were 35-18 for Notre Dame. Ian McNulty, Colin Mospanchuk and Tyson Newell scored for Melville, while Alex Wakaluk got the start in goal, making 30 saves.

The Mils and Terriers didn't lose any ground in the middle of the pack, as Estevan also lost to Nipawin.

The Mills better pick up the slack...cannot count on one line to win....wish Fiesel would realize he needs a D man badly and they got to shoot the puck not make a pretty pass....hope this new guy they got in on trade deadline will help.... Lucas is back so hoping his line will start producing.
