Ian McNulty scored his 20th goal of the season on a first period powerplay, but the Melville Millionaires could not beat Notre Dame Matt Smidt the rest of the way, as they dropped their 7th game in their last 8, 2-1 to Hounds.
Smidt made 38 saves on 39 shots, and one night after he stoned the Yorkton Terriers, he did the same to the Millionaires.
Our two local teams managed just 3 goals against the Hounds in the last two nights, none of them at even strength.
That brings Notre Dame just six points back of the Mils for fourth place in the Sherwood.
The Mils are home to Nipawin Saturday, and head to Weyburn on Sunday.
Flin Flon Bombers 1 @ Nipawin Hawks 5
The Yorkton Terriers host Nipawin tomorrow night, and Notre Dame on Saturday to close out their Pre-Christmas schedule.
In the MJHL... rookie defenseman Riley Hiebert had a goal and two assists, and the Swan Valley Stampeders picked up a 5-4 win over the Neepawa Natives.
The Stamps were out-shot 41-35, but Jayson Argue made 37 stops.
TJ Fairall also had a goal and an assist for Swan.
The Wayway Wolverines also got back in the win column, thanks to Cory Simons' third shutout of the season. Simons stopped all 23 shots he faced in a 5-0 win over OCN.

OCN sits second, with 42 points, Wayway's third with 36, and 3 games in hand. Swan Valley's 6 back of Wayway with 30 points.
