Hur­ri­canes cling­ing to top spot

The Southwest Booster - - CLASSIFIEDS / SPORTS -

The Swift Cur­rent K Mo­tel Hur­ri­canes re­main in top spot in the South Sask Midget AA Hockey League af­ter fac­ing a pair of ri­val Regina teams on the road.

The Hur­ri­canes were sup­posed to be in Wilcox to face the Notre Dame Ban­tam Hounds on Wed­nes­day but that game was can­celled.

Fri­day, the Hur­ri­canes saw their nine-game league win­ning streak come to an end in a 3-0 loss to the host Regina Cap­i­tals. Regina scored all three goals on the powerplay and the Hur­ri­canes failed to cap­i­tal­ize on six man-ad­van­tages.

Satur­day, the Hur­ri­canes got a shutout per­for­mance from Blade Roh in a 1-0 win over the host Regina Flames. Darby Crozier’s eighth goal of the sea­son, scored mid­way through the first pe­riod with an as­sist from Wade Auger, held up as the win­ner as the Hur­ri­canes kept the ri­val Flames off the score­board.

The Hur­ri­canes fin­ished the week in top spot in the league with a 20-6-3-0 record, two points ahead of the Cap­i­tals. They will be off from league ac­tion un­til Fe­bru­ary 15-16 when they host the Wey­burn Wings and Regina Wild. The Hur­ri­canes will be in Lethbridge for a tour­na­ment this weekend.
