After going through an epic battle in their Sask. Female Hockey League Pee Wee South Division semifinal with the Southwest Cyclones, the Moose Jaw Mavericks apparently wanted no part of close games with a championship on the line.

The Mavericks wasted little time in their South Division final against the Weyburn Angels over the weekend, rolling to a 4-1 victory in Game 1 on Saturday in Weyburn followed by an 8-1 win in Game 2 Sunday morning at Red Knight Arena.

The back-to-back wins gave Moose Jaw a 2-0 victory in the best-of-three series.

They’ll now advance to the SFHL provincial final against either the Western Prairie Stars or Northwest, with that series being played next weekend.

After going through a pair of overtime games just to advance to the South final, the Mavericks turned the deciding contest of the series into a rout early in the game.

Jesse Mielke scored two goals two minutes apart midway through the first period and added two more markers in the final 1:55 of the second as the Mavericks built a 7-0 lead on their way to the commanding win.

Brooklyn Nimegeers added three goals for Moose Jaw, whose quick-strike offence also picked up power play goals only 11 seconds apart in the second period, courtesy of Ashley Breitkreuz at 5:06 and Nimegeers at 4:55.

Weyburn scored their lone goal with 29 seconds left in the game.

Schay Camphaug went the distance in net.

Nimegeers and Brooklyn Hrynkiw also scored for Moose Jaw, who found themselves tied 1-1 after the first and leading 3-1 through two.

Nimegeers and Breitkreuz added two assists each.

Camphaug was the winning netminder.
