1-Melville Millionaires (13-3-1-2) ... 1st last week
No regulation losses in nine. Showdown with Yorkton this weekend looms.
2-Yorkton Terriers (13-5-1-2) ... 2nd last week
Best compliment you can pay a team is when other teams say, “They are the best we’ve faced.”
3-Nipawin Hawks (12-9-0-2) ... 5th last week
Won eight of ten and have seized control of Sherwood Division.
4-Kindersley Klippers (13-6-1-1) ... 3rd last week
They couldn’t score for over a week, but finally back in the win column.
5-Humboldt Broncos (11-8-1-1) ... 7th last week
Just two regulation losses in their last ten. Here come the Broncos.
6-Estevan Bruins (9-6-2-2) ... 4th last week
Keeping pace with the Terriers and Mils in the Viterra.
7-Melfort Mustangs (8-8-1-2) ... 10th last week
Almost all of their games are close whether they win or lose.
8-Flin Flon Bombers (10-10-0-0) ... 8th last week
They sweep La Ronge and then get swept down south. Up and down yo-yo season continues.
9-La Ronge Ice Wolves (10-9-0-0) ... 6th last week
Should fans be alarmed? Only three wins in their last ten. Long slumps can kill a team in this league.
10-Notre Dame Hounds (7-9-1-1) ... 11th last week
Brett Soles steals the week with a pair of shutouts.
11-Battlefords North Stars (8-13-1-1) ... 9th last week
They didn’t lose last week in regulation time, but they lose spots in the rankings. That’s parity for you.
12-Weyburn Red Wings (8-12-0-1) ... 12th last week
They beat the mighty Terriers and don’t move up? That’s parity for you too.
Isaiah Plett, Melville (3-0, 1SO, 0.97, .967) ... maybe the biggest reason for Mils’ success.
Kale Thomson, Yorkton (3-0-2, 1.55, .948) ... Terrier workhorse gets better each night.
Brett Boehm, Flin Flon (4-1-5-6) ... with Blair out, he has a lot of weight to carry.
Parker Evans-Campbell, Flin Flon (4-1-4-5) ... maybe Evans-Campbell picks up some slack.
Tad Kozun, Nipawin (9-8-2-10) ... Hey Tad: scoring is supposed to be DOWN this year.
Ty McLean, Weyburn (7-3-5-8) ... With Williams traded, McLean becomes a focal point.
Ryan Cooper, Weyburn (7-2-6-8) ... Realizing his offensive potential.
Brian Farkas, Weyburn (8-4-5-9) ... Quietly enjoying a real productive season.
