Novice Mustangs sweep doubleheader with Estevan

Mustangs White take 7-1 victory in opener, Mustangs Red roll to 10-3 win in second game
The way things are looking for the two Moose Jaw Mustangs teams in the South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League Novice division, the only time they’re going to see a loss this season is if they play each other.

League action Saturday afternoon at the Kinsmen Sportsplex offered the latest example, as the Mustangs White took a 7-1 win over the Estevan Voltz before the Mustangs Red rolled to a 10-3 win over Estevan in the second game of the day.

For the Mustangs White, there was little drama as they rolled out to a 3-1 lead in the first period and never looked back, extending their edge to 4-1 through two before tacking on three insurance goals in the final frame.

Luke Turner scored three times and added an assist for Moose Jaw while Caiden Arnott had a trio of goals. Teegan Kivol scored their final marker. Reid Yeroschak was in next.

Things were far closer in the early going for the Mustangs Red. The two teams were tied 1-1 after the first period before Moose Jaw turned on the jets with five second period goals and a 6-2 lead. Estevan managed to get one back and close to within three goals early in the third, but a four-goal outburst in the final 11:56 turned the contest into a blowout.

Cooper Fulton had a five-point afternoon with three goals and two assists. Aiden McGillvray scored three times for the Mustangs to go along with two goals and two assists from Kashton Smith; Rhyen Ubell and Kaden Flanagan had one goal each, Hayden Nidesh added two helpers.

Jordan Ebbett and Elizabeth Deans were in goal.

The Novice White Mustangs are back in action Monday, May 6 when they travel to Weyburn. The Red Mustangs play their next game May 15 when they host the Thrashers. Game time is 6:30 p.m. at the Kinsmen.
