The Swift Current Innovation Credit Union Female AAA Wildcats registered a two-win weekend at home to stay atop the Saskatchewan Female U18 AAA Hockey League’s standings.
A late third-period goal by the Wildcats was just enough to squeeze past the Saskatoon Stars Saturday night 3-2.
Swift Current forward Jerzey Watteyne had the goal with 2:14 left in the game. The other two Wildcats markers came from Cydny Price and Amiyah Jones.
Karlee Lehner was solid in the Swift Current net stopping 29 shots improving to 4-1 on the season.
Three goals in the game’s final seven minutes propelled Swift Current to its second straight victory over the Saskatoon Stars on Sunday 4-1.
Defenceman Taylre Becker and Caitlyn Perlinger each had goals and so did forwards Sadie Keller and Watteyne.
Goalie Paige Fischer was outstanding in net turning aside 38 shots.
