The Southwest Booster - - MARKET PLACE -

The Swift Cur­rent Di­a­mond En­ergy Wild­cats dropped down the Saskatchewan Fe­male Midget AAA Hockey League stand­ings when they earned only two of six points in a week­end home stand against the Melville Prairie Fire.

Satur­day, the Wild­cats al­lowed the game’s open­ing five goals in a 5-2 loss to the Prairie Fire dur­ing the Hockey Day in Canada fes­tiv­i­ties at the iplex as their eight-game win­ning streak came to a sud­den halt.

The Prairie Fire re­ceived two goals from Starla Mann and sin­gles from Me­gan Hay­hurst, Al­li­son Hay­hurst, and Heather Fiske over the open­ing 42:20 to open an in­sur­mount­able lead.

The Wild­cats replied with goals from Sara Ken­dall and Kenedee Klev­gaard. Maddy Mc­cleary, Brynne Do­erk­sen, Crys­tal Wale, and Layne Hry­horiw added as­sists.

Amaya Gi­raudier took the loss after al­low­ing five goals on 20 shots over 42:20. Harper Davey stopped all five shots she faced in re­lief.

Cheyenne Jamieson picked up the win with 28 saves on 30 shots.

Sun­day’s game was de­layed by a power out­age, but the Wild­cats even­tu­ally picked up a pair of points in a 2-1 over­time win.

Tay­lor Lind scored in over­time to sal­vage the week­end with an as­sist from Baylee Kir­wan. Tobi Fon­taine scored the other goal in the sec­ond pe­riod to tie the game with as­sists from Klev­gaard and Do­erk­sen.

Jor­dyn Bear had scored a short­handed goal in the first pe­riod to give the Prairie Fire the lead. Jamieson made 36 saves for the Prairie Fire. Gi­raudier earned the win with 28 saves for the Wild­cats.

The Wild­cats (13-10-2-1) are now three points back of the Prince Al­bert Bears (13-8-3-2) for third in the SFMAAAHL.

The Wild­cats will con­clude the reg­u­lar sea­son this week­end with two games against the last place Wey­burn Wings (1-24-0-1). The first game will be Satur­day at 7:45 p.m., fol­lowed by Sun­day’s meet­ing at 12:45 p.m. at Fairview West Arena.
