This matinee started at 1:00 PDT, after originally being announced as a 2:15 PDT game time. Grrrr. Hawryluk has found his form in goal. Although not a difficult opponent, he did make the saves needed for a comfortable victory. This win puts the Herd above .500 for the first time.

Of note, Bison defenceman Liam Schioler was back in he line-up in this one.

Goal: Alta: Schneider (34 shots, 29 saves), Sask: Ross (25 shots, 23 saves)

The Banjo-Mutts came up with a big win to at least claim temporary possession of first place. I was a bit surprised by the way they controlled the Evil Monkeys. There was a bit of an interruption with all CWTV feeds, so I missed a good chunk of all games. And, with three games starting at the exact same time, I missed more than I saw of the out-of-town games.

Goal: Reg: Meger (37 shots, 33 saves), Calg: Tetachuk (22 shots, 20 saves)

The Banjo-Cats disintegrated throughout this game. The 1st period saw them outshoot Bedrock U 12-6 and outscore them 2-1. The Dinos‛ Friday night curse looked to be real at that point. The Dinos gathered steam throughout, outshooting Regina 14-7 in the 2nd period and 18-3 in the 3rd. The paltry three shots in the 3rd period showed that the Cats were not really in this at the end.

The Bluegars dominated The Family Guys in this one. Jackson Berry got a shutout with just 10 saves. Sawchuk‛s goals were his 5th and 6th of the season. If the Mythical Mutants want to escape with Giggity Giggity in the rematch they‛ll need more than one shot in the 1st period, and 10 in the game.

TWU: D. DuBois (00:59 2nd) , L. Spadafora (02:48 3rd)
Goal: Man: Hawryluk (32 shots, 30 saves), TWU: Audet (30 shots, 27 saves)

First, the Bisons were down one more forward as Devon Skoleski (11 points in 5 games) did not suit up for this one. Defenceman Zach Patrick was moved to a forward spot, and notched his first goal. Dylan Thiessen (6 points in 6 games) was also injured in this game, but did return.

I have to credit Holy Trinity. This was their best game of the season by far. It was Alumni Night, so the players maybe wanted to impress their predecessors. The Bisons seemed to want to just let the clock tick down in the 3rd period without suffering any more injuries. They could use the week to recover.


#28 Codey Behun and #6 Mitch Dyck fight for the puck with two Spartans. Behun had his first goal of the season.

The Family Guys could barely muster a shot on Friday and badly needed to turn things around in this one. They boosted their shot total from 11 to 39. They were a completely different side. It appeared that they may have won the game with a goal in the 4-on-4 segment of OT, but it was waived off. This gives the Mythical Mutants three straight splits, which they must find to be satisfactory. The Bluegars seem to be on the verge of a breakthrough but never quite make it. They are now 4-2-2.

Goal: Reg: Evanoff (40 shots, 36 saves), Calg: Tetachuk (23 shots, 22 saves)

Bedrock U, as usual, won the Saturday game of the double-header. The Banjo-Cats were disappointing in this one. They did lose a lot of offence from last year and it seems like they are playing with little confidence right now. Of note Jake Gricius scored his 7th goal in 8 games for the Dinos.

This OTW for the Evil Monkeys made the weekend series 3-2 on points to the Banjo-Mutts, and leaves the teams tied for 1st place. This was a pretty good game I had playing in the background whilst trying to watch the Jets, Bisons, MLB playoffs, and CFL. Sask‛s broadcast quality has taken a nosedive this year. They have a silly little girl who giggles at her own jokes and some guy who just plays along. Very disappointing.

The Bluegars are somewhat of an enigmatic team. At their best, they are a contender and a threat to win a berth in the U-Cup. But just when they seem ready for a breakthrough, they falter. They are blessed with two of the best forwards in the country: Nolan Yaremko (3 goals and 10 assists in 8 games) and Riley Sawchuk (7 goals and 8 assists in 7 games).

The Bisons have some lofty stats themselves, with three players in the Top Ten despite having played just six games. Chase Hartje (4-8-12, leads CW defencemen in scoring), Devon Skoleski (4-7-11, in 5 games), and Brett Davis (4-6-10). After last weekend it appears that the Bison defence is fully recovered from injuries. However, they might need to move two of them to the forward lines due to the injuries up front.

The Achilles heel in the Bison home games was in goal. That problem has evidently been addressed on the road, where Ross Hawryluk found his form. Hopefully he can keep that going at The Rink, where the Bisons appear for the last time.

The linked story is on Tony Apetagon, a kid from a remote northern community getting a chance at a top 6 forward spot on the team.

So far the Banjo-Cats have played three series. They started with 2 points against MacEwan, then had 1 point against Manitoba, then no points against Calgary. The trend is not good, especially when the Evil Monkeys are coming to town. Regina really needs a split here to stay within shouting distance of playoff contention.

The Family Guys have beaten Alberta, so beating the T-irds is not out of the question. They have splits in all three series so far, the others being against Regina and MRU. Their wins have been close games, two in overtime. Their losses have been decisive, one by 3 goals and two by 4 goals. So it might be said that they have squeezed maximum points from their performance thus far. I am not sold on UBC‛s goaltending. If one of their newcomers can solidify that position perhaps they could sweep a series like this one.

NOTE: Saskatchewan, Trinity Western, and Calgary all have byes because there are 16 weeks to the season and each team needs two bye weeks.

Man: none
Goal: MRU: Sims (13 shots, 13 saves), Man: Hawryluk (50 shots, 46 saves)

The good news: The Bisons managed to shut down the Sawchuk/Yaremko duo. The bad news: They sacrificed any offence of their own in the process. Here‛s how they lined up:

MANITOBA
Goal
34 Hawryluk (1 Harkness)

Defence
4 Malchuk - 16 Hartje
12 Patrick - 2 Stewart
27 Gottfried - 8 Toth

MOUNT ROYAL

35 Sims (33 Berry)

Defence
25 Aquilon - 5 Ladyman
2 Walker - 24 Jensen
3 Gould - 16 Blake

Forwards
23 Yarekmo - 13 Sawchuk - 12 Bouchard
19 Gillisss - 9 Regnier - 11 Fyten
8 Moe - 10 Holmes - 18 Stevenson
28 Rawji - 14 Morrisseau - 26 Power

Scratches
3 Pow - 17 Tarzwell - 22 Hakim
27 Senkoe - 34 Farkas

The stats show that the Bluegars were 1-for-8 on the PP, however two more goals were scored just seconds after a Bison penalty expired. Hawryluk had a good game in goal and has clearly emerged as the go-to guy. A few years ago, these teams played the heaviest games in the CW where the boards were rattling all game long. It is not like that now. Most penalties were cheap garbage that could have been ignored.

Saturday night‛s game is thankfully the last one at The Rink. After that it is back to the fully renovated Wayne Fleming Arena. Including pre-season, the Bisons are now 0-5-0 at The Rink, 0-1-0 at The Ralph, and 7-0-0 elsewhere.

The stats on this one were not as bad as the scoreline. The play was relatively even. For the Evil Monkeys, Prokop‛s goals were his 5th and 6th of the season, and Smallwood‛s was his 7th. The Banjo-Cats have nobody with that type of finish this year.

The scoreline is a bit misleading here as well. It was 4-2 with just over a minute to play. Each side had nine PPs, but the T-irds scored four times on theirs whilst The Family Guys scored just once.

The Bisons did not have enough healthy players to ice a full line-up, and played one short. Dylan Thiessen then left early after a blocked shot, so they were down two players. Last week they had extra defencemen, in this game they were down to five. Rookie Eric Fawkes played his first game. Here‛s how they lined up:

MANITOBA
Goal
34 Hawryluk - 1 Harkness

Defence
4 Malchuk - 16 Hartje
2 Stewart
27 Gottfried - 8 Toth

Forwards
10 Skoleski - 22 Davis - 17 Veloso
18 Hooker - 9 Thiessen - 11 Ostir
21 Basarab - 28 Behun - 23 Fawkes
29 King - 19 Arpin - 13 Sutter

Scratches
35 Murphy - 5 Schioler - 6 Dyck - 12 Patrick
20 Apetagon - 14 Keane - 26 McCorrister

MOUNT ROYAL
Goal
35 Sims (33 Berry)

Defence
25 Aquilon - 5 Ladyman
2 Walker - 24 Jensen
3 Gould - 16 Blake

Forwards
13 Sawchuk - 23 Yarekmo - 12 Bouchard
19 Gillisss - 9 Regnier - 11 Fyten
8 Moe - 10 Holmes - 18 Stevenson
28 Rawji - 14 Morrisseau - 26 Power

Scratches
3 Pow - 17 Tarzwell - 22 Hakim
27 Senkoe - 34 Farkas

The positive thing about this game is that the Bisons won‛t be playing at The Rink any more. From here on in they will be back at the Wayne Fleming Arena. Including the two exhibition games, the Bisons were 0-6-0 at The Rink.

If the Bisons want to pick up points in Edmontown next weekend when they face the Evil Monkeys, they will need some injured players back.


Devon Skoleski was back this weekend after missing a game last weekend.

The Banjo-Cats were unable to pick up any points at home, and this has them in a tricky spot if they want to rally for a playoff berth. Tyler Preziuso‛s goal for the Evil Monkeys was his 8th of the season. It‛s peculiar that Regina still has not posted a review.

This series has an ominous feel to it. Although the Bisons split their last trip to Edmontown, they were crushed by MRU a week ago with a short-staffed lineup. The Bisons have to hope for a full roster. Neither side has posted a preview story.

The Bedrock Boys had been splitting every series until they swept Regina. They could win on any given night. Same for the T-irds, in a way. This is a scheduling oddity. In the days of an 8-team league the 1st half schedule was the mirror image of the 2nd half. Not now. These teams split a series in British California, the Dinos‛ win coming in overtime.

Goal: Man: Hawryluk (L) (32 shots, 26 saves), Harkness (11 shots, 10 saves), Alta: Schneider (18 shots, 17 saves)

The sparse Bison roster just did not look like the team they were, and that is likely because of the injuries. They were one man short and had just five defencemen. For good news, captain Geordie Keane played his first game of the year and the 3rd period was tied! THE Evil Monkeys were 3-for-7 on the PP, which got them off to an early lead.

This was a kooky game. The Banjo-Cats dominated the 1st period, outshooting the Banjo-Mutts 20-7 but leading just 1-0. The Canines outshot the Felines 23-11 over the last two periods to rally for the win. The game was tied 1-1 with just over 6 minutes to play when the floodgates opened. Saturday‛s rematch was to have been played in Saskatown but a watermain break has forced postponement of that one to November 29th.

After getting a break in last year‛s Covid schedule (where the T-irds played TWU six times), and getting a break this year (where the two teams they play just once are Alberta and MRU), UBC could have mounted a serious challenge by treading water against the CW middle powers. This series in the Town of Bedrock is an important one for UBC. The teams met earlier, and the standings are now 4 points for the Dinos and 3 points for the T-irds through three games. I was shocked at the margin. The Dinos outshot UBC 14-3 in the 1st period and led 4-0.

Holy Trinity hits the win column for the first time this season! From the little I saw of this game, the Mythical Mutants carried the play ever so slightly. But the Spartans were due for a win. This is a costly loss for The Family Guys. I blame Meg.

I was unable to watch this game so all I know is the statistical summary. The score was 3-1 entering the 3rd period. The Bisons switched starting goaltenders but once again did the mid-game yank thing.

The Dinos are #6 in both the OHT35 and the USports Top Ten. They started the season losing Friday and winning Saturday for three weekends in a row before sweeping Regina and UBC the last two weekends. That adds up to a 5-game winning streak entering the weekend.

Meanwhile, the Bisons are on a 4-game losing streak. This followed a 4-game winning streak. The Bisons are playing at the Wayne Fleming Arena for the first time this season. Maybe this will change their fortunes. They were 0-6-0 at The Rink. Of major concern is the injury list. A full squad is essential if they want to be competitive in this series.

Last season these teams faced each other on the opening weekend in the Town of Bedrock, and split. The summaries and stories are in the links.

There are plenty of featured players to watch. The Bisons have three Top-20 scorers (Brett Davis, 6-8-14; Devon Skoleski, 4-9-13; and Chase Hartje, 4-8-12), and the Dinos have two (Jake Gricius 8-2-10 and Max Patterson 5-5-10).

Quick Summary
TWU: none
UBC: J. Williams (08:42 1st) , C. McNabb (04:08 2nd) , S. Atkinson (18:52 3rd)
Goal: TWU: Berkeliev (49 shots, 46 saves), UBC: Schwebius (25 shots, 25 saves)

Of note, the T-irds were 3-for-7 on the powerplay, and the Spartans were 0-for-8. Sometimes Holy Trinity can be chippy, but so too can UBC. The UBC goaltending has been shaky so they must be happy with the shutout.

This game was the 5th straight loss for the Bisons, all by wide margins. This is with a roster which, on paper, is better than last year‛s and comparable to many recent rosters. There was some line juggling in the 3rd period, notably Colton Veloso was removed from the top line in favour of Hayden Ostir. This was a good move. Veloso is either injured or not fit and has not been able to keep up with his linemates. Ostir was skating much better. Veloso can play a grinding role on another line, where he could be quite effective. Once again, a Bison starting goaltender did not finish the game, as Simon Harkness came on for Rosss Hawryluk to start the 3rd period.

The Bisons also had a full roster, so no excuses there.

There were three near-fights in the 3rd period in what was generally a cleanly-played game. This could lead to some fireworks in Saturday‛s rematch.

After 5 straight losses, the Bisons held a 2-1 lead entering the 3rd period but were unable to hold on. Here's how they lined up:

Scratches
1 Stankowski - 10 Atwal - 11 Massier
22 Horning - 27 Upper

The Bisons made one line-up switch from Friday which I assume was due to injury. Defenceman Evan Toth was scratched, and they played with only five blueliners. I listed the combinations they used. Hartje and Schioler always played LD, and Stewart and Malchuk always played RD. Gottfried was the one who switched. I don‛t know if Fawkes hit the ice as a 13th forward. Bedrock U made one switch (Quigly for Horning on defence).

Ross Hawryluk played well in goal in the first two periods, backstopping the Bisons to a 2-1 lead with 34 saves on 35 shots. Unfortunately, the Dinos‛ 3rd period goals were tainted. The first was a slow trickler through the 5-hole, the second was a rebound on a dropped puck, and the 3rd was an empty-netter. The Bison offence was also limited, especially a powerplay with 5 minutes left when they trailed 3-2.

The line shuffling was fairly effective. Veloso 's line switch made him play better and improved the first line. He was still on the PP, and that needs some work before next week's MacEwan series which could be for a playoff berth.

The Bisons switched to their alternate gold/beige jerseys for this game. Those would be great if they had the logo, rather that the diagonal "BISONS" word-mark.

The Banjo-Cats, though swept, gave the Bluegars a good battle. There were long stretches where they had MRU reeling. But MRU has the blue chip players, and they made the difference. MRU‛s starting goaltender Riley Sims was injured early. I never heard the announcers say what actually happened to him.

Well, another one-sided loss for The Family Guys. That happens every weekend, but just once. On the weekend, these Mythical Mutants had their usual close win and convincing loss. They are the next opponent for the Bisons in a series that will have playoff implications. We can see that MacU can win or lose any time.

This is a big series for the Bisons. The Family Guys have managed to split all six series played thus far, even when they play Alberta, Trinity, or anybody in-between. Their MO is win a squeaker in one game and get whipped in the other. The Bisons are on a six game losing streak. Last year, the Bisons won both games against these Mythical Mutants. This year, the Bisons also beat them in a pre-season game.

As usual, the Bisons have three players in the Top 12 scorers (Davis, Skoleski, and Hartje). The Mutants have no eye-popping numbers up front, but each side has scored 33 times this year.

Both #1 goaltenders are below league average. Mac‛s Ashton Abel is 6-4-0, 3.46 GAA, .898 S%. Manitoba‛s Ross Hawryluk is 4-6-0, 4.32 GAA, .892 S%.

This could be the series of the weekend. These teams have every opportunity of finishing in the top two, and the right to host a semi-final series. The Bluegars started the season being whipped twice by Alberta, but since then are 8-0-2. The Banjo-Mutts have been winning consistently all year, including an impressive 1-0-1 weekend against Alberta.

On offence, six of the CW‛s Top Twenty scorers will be involved. MRU‛s Sawchuk-Yaremko duo are tied for first with 22 points and linemate Connor Bouchard has 12 points himself. Sask has three players in the Top Ten (Hobbs, Dmytriw, Keeler).

In goal, Sask‛s Roddy Ross has the best numbers in the CW (6-0-0, 2.00 GAA, .933 S%). MRU‛s Riley Sims is not far behind (5-0-0, 2.06 GAA, .908 S%).

This is a rematch of last year‛s CW final. After this weekend, the T-irds‛ next opponent will be Mount Royal. UBC will have to pick up some points otherwise they might be looking to salvage a playoff berth rather than seek a bye through the quarter-finals. UBC sits dead-centre in the CW standings. Against the top half, they are 1-4-1. Against the bottom half, they are 5-0-1. The Evil Monkeys are on their usual roll. They have scored the most goals (60) and surrendered the fewest (25).

This was a much-needed slump-buster for the Herd. Three players had two goals each to lead the way to a convincing win.

Quick Summary
MacU: M. Pasemko (08:47 3rd)
Man: L. McCorrister (01:09 1st) , D. Skoleski (16:14 1st) , D. Skoleski (00:49 2nd) , C. Veloso (10:44 2nd) , B. Davis (13:20 2nd) , L. McCorrister (03:59 3rd) , C. Veloso (05:13 3rd)
Goal: MacU: Abel (L) (27 shots, 22 saves), Davis (14 shots, 12 saves), Man: Hawryluk (47 shots, 46 saves)

Not to downplay a near shut-out performance from Hawryluk, but that shot clock seemed inflated to me. The alleged combined 35 shots in the first period seemed excessive. Here‛s how they lined up:

The Bisons are largely healthy now. Linden McCorrister came back last week, and scored two goals in this one. Back from the infirmary this week are Mitch Dyck on defence and Dylan Thiessen at centre on the 2nd line. I am not sure how many of the scratches were healthy, but this was the strongest Bison line-up dressed so far this season. Colton Veloso‛s shift to the 2nd line has paid dividends, as he also scored twice. That makes it a 4-goal game for the 2nd line. The 1st line wasn‛t bad either, with Devon Skoleski scoring twice and Brett Davis once.

Of note, the Bisons have now played twice in their alternate tan/gold jersey. There was also a very lively crowd, featuring the Engineers‛ Marching Band. They were at the hockey game from the mid-1st period and through the 2nd period. I am guessing they also graced the volleyball games with their presence. For some reason, they were razzing Abel and Davis about their water-drinking. "Abel‛s Thirsty, clap clap clap-clap clap" when he took a drink, and after each goal "Drink Some Water, clap clap clap-clap clap" followed by applause when he did so. I found it amusing.


One of Devon Skoleski's opportunities.

I was at the Bison game, but saw the ending of this on CWTV. The Evil Monkeys were down 5-0 but stormed back with some authority in the last 15 minutes of the game. All three goals were on the PP. Several other close calls could well have resulted in an all-time epic collapse. Like the Leafs in the playoffs! Big win on the road for the T-irds.

Three teams never posted game stories on Friday night in time for my post, and here they are now.


➤ Mac: Outworked and in tough against a hot goalie, Griffins fall 7-1 to Bisons


(Mac U uploaded a different game photo, this featuring the returning Dylan Thiessen.)


➤ UofS: MHKY: Huskies Fall 3-1 to MRU Cougars


(The Sask story add this non-archival picture and pointed out that the Mutts played short due to "illness", rather than "injury". I guess the flu bug landed in Banjoland.)

Still nothing from the Evil Monkeys. Their website used to be one of the best for updates. Not so this year.

➤ Mac: Team Website

This big showdown for a playoff berth turned into a romp. The Bison 6-game losing streak is now tucked into the past, and no giggity giggity for The Family Guys as their streak of 6-consecutive splits comes to an end.

Quick Summary
MacU: C. Roach (08:42 3rd) , D. Kope (17:07 3rd)
Man: D. Thiessen (00:33 2nd) , H. Ostir (05:37 2nd) , M. Dyck (12:20 2nd) , B. Davis (05:27 3rd) , B. Davis (11:21 3rd) , L. McCorrister (15:30 3rd) , D. Thiessen (17:37 3rd)
Goal: MacU: Abel (38 shots, 31 saves), Man: Hawryluk (29 shots, 27 saves)

The line-ups were changed only slightly from Friday. The Bisons subbed-in Evan Toth for Sam Stewart on defence, and kept the lines and pairings the same otherwise.

For the Mythical Mutants, centre Carter Chorney was injured on Friday and no replacement was available, so they had just 11 forwards and 5 defencemen. The defence had a 5-man rotation as they did on Friday. The forward lines were mixed and matched throughout the afternoon.

This marks the mid-point of the regular season for both sides. This was the Bisons‛ final home series of the first semester. They face Saskatchewan next weekend, then have a bye, then it is the exam/Christmas break. The next home games are January 6th and 7th against Regina‛s Banjo-Cats.

Of note, each CW team has two opponents they play just once. For the Bisons, those teams are MacEwan and Saskatchewan. This means that in the event of a tie with Mac in the final standings, the Bisons hold the head-on tie-breaker.


Colton Veloso has 3 goals and 3 assists in the 3 games since the line shuffling.

Goal: Sask: Ross (27 shots, 23 saves), MRU: Sims (21 shots, 20 saves)

This was a game of total dominance for MRU. They truly made the Banjo-Mutts look like a non-playoff team. The Bluegars are now on a 10-0-2 roll. Yaremko and Sawchuk had two goals apiece. The statistics do not do the second period justice. It was that one-sided.

The Evil Monkeys did not take Friday‛s loss lightly. They made the T-irds look like beer leaguers, and my mid-way through the 2nd period the T-irds were getting chippy. The T-irds took three penalties in the first half of the game but would up with 50 minutes, aided by a couple of 10-minute misconducts.

This week had much more than the usual amount of news. First, there were two additional non-conference games for the Bisons. On December 30th they are off to Minnesota where they will face the St. Cloud State Huskies (currently 11-3-0). The Bisons split a pair of non-conference games in the Excited States in pre-season, but this should be a tough test.

More interestingly, the Bisons and three other CW teams (Sask, Calgary, Alberta) will host Ukraine‛s Universiade team (dubbed "Ukraine U-25 National Team" at Ticketmaster). The schedule is:
Dec 30th: Ukraine at Saskatchewan
Jan 2nd: Ukraine at Calgary
Jan 3rd: Ukraine at Alberta
Jan 9th: Ukraine at Manitoba

The other teams will be playing at their usual arenas. However, the Bisons will be at the Canada Life Centre (the renamed Jets‛ arena). The linked stories contain links to purchase tickets or make a donation. This series is a fund-raiser for Ukrainian hockey.

In last season‛s October series, the Banjo-Mutts played better against the Bisons than any other team all year. They did fade throughout the year, ending with a quarter-final loss against Calgary. This year, they reached their apex against the Evil Monkeys on Oct 21st and 22nd, when they had a decisive 5-2 win and an OTL. Last weekend, they played down a man and were handled by the Bluegars.

The Bisons won‛t have sympathy for those who play a man short, having just escaped such a stretch themselves. Have the Herd turned the corner? Last weekend they throughly whipped MacEwan, who split with Sask the weekend before. So we‛ll see.

Of note, this is the only series between these teams this year.

I also linked a story about a Mike McGowan, a linesman who suffered a broken jaw last Saturday in a TWU game played at Langley. The photo seems to indicate somebody who looks forward to a diet of soup and milkshakes.

Meanwhile, the T-irds have been on a roller-coaster this year. Even last weekend, when they beat the Evil Monkeys on Friday before being beaten 9-1 on Saturday.

Tic-tac-toe, three in a row. This win in Banjoland was a tough arm-wrestle, typical of games between the Bisons and Mutts in the past.

Quick Summary
Man: D. Skoleski (00:37 2nd), J. Hooker (00:48 3rd), P. Malchuk (04:48 1st OT)
Sask: C. Zimmerman (11:39 1st), C. Stebbings (08:15 3rd)
Goal: Man: Hawryluk (31 shots, 29 saves), Sask: Ross (18 shots, 15 saves)

From the last game, the Bisons made two line-up changes. Forwards Geordie Keane and Tony Apetagon were scratched in favour of Zach Patrick (who played up front rather than on the blueline), and Noah Basarab. Parker Malchuk‛s OT winner was his first goal as a Bison.

Saturday‛s rematch is the final Bison game of the 1st semester, with a chance to get back to the .500 level.

This game had its ebbs and flows. I saw the ending after the Bison game. It was already 5-4 at that time, and the pace and intensity were pretty good, for teams with one win each. Holy Trinity led 2-1 after one, The Banjo-Cats scored four unanswered in the 2nd, and then TWU made it a nail-biter with a pair in the 3rd. Eight of the nine goals were therefore at one end of the ice. Do you think the ice was slanted?

In the Town of Bedrock, the Dinos jumped out to a 3-0 1st period lead, outshooting the Evil Monkeys 20-10 in the process. I tuned in to see the ending of this one after seeing Regina‛s win. The Dinos were really having their way with the Monkeys. Despite trailing entering the 3rd period, the Monkeys were decisively outplayed. The scene shifts to Edmontown for Saturday‛s rematch. Don‛t forget last weekend where a Friday loss was followed by a 9-1 Primate victory on Saturday.

Saturday Morning Links

The later games had no game reports as I posted Friday night, and two (MRU and Alberta) still don't.

In Bedrock, it's yabba-dabba-doo time. They are justifiably happy at taking over first place. Will that still be the case on Sunday morning?

➤ UBC: Clutch goaltending, solid PK key in T-Birds win over Cougars (with boxscore and video)

The UBC story is worth a read. Their website appears to be tops in the CW this year. Their win denied the Bluegars a share of 1st place, moved the T-irds into a tie with Sask, and assured the T-irds that they would not be caught by the Bisons this weekend.

The Vikes scored one more to beat VIU 4-1. It was their first win over someboy other than Logan Lake. This game was in Victoria. Saturday's rematch is in Nanaimo, where they likely have great bars.

November 26: BISONS EXPERIENCE FIRST SPLIT OF THE SEASON

➤ UofS: MHKY: Huskies Win Earning Weekend Split (with boxscore)

This was the Bisons‛ final series of the first semester, and was also their first split series. It was a pretty good one, fast-paced and hard hitting. The Bisons were down a man, missing Jackson Arpin from Friday‛s line-up.

Quick Summary
Man: C. Behun (15:15 1st), B. Davis (08:01 2nd), D. Skoleski (19:48 2nd)
Sask: J. Kaluski (07:25 1st), C. Petruic (13:35 1st), J. Dmytriw (14:56 1st), J. Kaluski (08:03 3rd)
Goal: Man: Hawryluk (38 shots, 34 saves), Sask: Kooy (28 shots, 25 saves)

The Banjo-Mutts built a 3-0 1st period lead, the final of which was a trickler between Hawryluk‛s pads which he wasn‛t quite able to reach. The Bisons were very unfortunate to be behind at that point. The goal-posts and crossbar were their enemy. By carrying the play the game was tied after the 2nd period, including a penalty shot goal by Brett Davis. The Mutts were out for real in the 3rd period, outshooting the Bisons 11-3 and scoring the only goal.

The Bisons have now finished the 1st semester with a 7-9-0 record and seem to be ensconced in the 6th and final playoff berth. They now break for exams and Christmas. Their next game is a non-conference tilt away to St. Cloud State on Dec 30th, followed by a home series against Regina on Jan 6th & 7th, and an exhibition game against Ukraine on Jan 9th.

➤ TWU: JOSS, PENNER SCORE IN LOSS TO REGINA (with boxscore)
➤ UofR: Men's hockey completes weekend sweep over Trinity Western (with boxscore)

Quick Summary
TWU: J. Penner (03:41 1st), M. Joss (14:56 2nd)
Reg: J. Fletcher (05:06 1st), T. Adams (12:44 2nd), B. Pouteau (06:10 3rd), T. Heidt (17:32 3rd)
Goal: TWU: LaBelle (44 shots, 40 saves), Reg: Evanoff (27 shots, 25 saves)

I didn‛t see any of this matinee. Needless to say, the Banjo-Cats needed this sweep to keep at least one or two of their nine lives available for future use. At 3-9-1 a major winning streak is needed for the Puddy Tats. Holy Trinity was likely resigned to playing a spoiler role this season.


MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 3
U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS 2

➤ Summaries: LeagueStat : CW

Quick Summary
MRU: C. Blake (08:10 1st), M. Ladyman (06:32 2nd), C. Bouchard (13:05 2nd)
UBC: J. Wismer (06:35 3rd), T. Rask (09:55 3rd)
Goal: MRU: Berry (25 shots, 23 saves), UBC: Schwebius (29 shots, 26 saves)

This matinee started at 5:00 CST so I was able to see a lot of it before the Bison game. A split series makes sense here. This win allowed the Bluegars to jump over the Evil Monkeys and into 2nd place. How crazy is that? The Bluegars held a 3-0 lead entering the 3rd and appeared to be cruising. The shots were 24-13 for MRU after two, and 12-5 for UBC in the 3rd, which accurately reflected the play.


CALGARY DINOSAURS 3
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2

Quick Summary
Calg: N. King (04:20 1st), Z. Wytinck (17:44 1st), M. Patterson (01:46 2nd)
Alta: D. Davidson (14:44 1st), J. Prokop (05:13 3rd)
Goal: Calg: Tetachuk (27 shots, 25 saves), Alta: Schneider (22 shots, 19 saves)

The 1st place Dinos have opened a 3-point lead over the Evil Monkeys, and a 2-point lead over MRU, atop the CW standings. The 3rd place Evil Monkeys doesn‛t happen this late in the season. I saw the 3rd period after the Bison game was over. The Dinos had a 3-1 lead and were playing kitty-bar-the-door kind of hockey. They had just 3 shots but that doesn‛t matter when you only give up 8.
