Saturday's game was very similar to Friday's. The Bisons dominated play (shots were 40-18) and could have really run up the score had they capitalized on their abundant chances. At no point in time did Lethbridge ever give the impression that they would even come close to winning the hockey game.

It is true that the H0rny Ones gave it all they had. They just lack talent to mount a threat. They played it quite chippy and by the last half of the game there were scrums after every whistle. After a bye week they were no doubt prepared for this series. As the season marches on I can easily see them being stomped.

Both sides switched goaltenders, the Bisons replaced Eric Mestery with Brock Sutherland, the `Horns juggled their 3rd and 4th lines, and otherwise the lineups were identical to Friday night.

The Bisons took a 2-0 lead 13 minutes into the 1st period. Jeremy Schappert scored (his 3rd) unassisted from along the boards immediately after a sustained scramble in fron of the Lethbridge net. A few minutes later Luke Cain cashed in (also his 3rd) on a wide-open net.

Tyler Dittmer scored (his 4th) only 9 seconds into the 2nd period, following which the game deteriorated with the pushing, shoving, and cheap shots coming in droves. And the puck seldom leaving the Lethbridge end of the rink.

A mini-comeback was launched 44 seconds into the 3rd period when Hayden Rintoul scored (his 3rd) on a crazy rebound off the glass behind the Bison goal. Thereafter, however, the 'Horns only had 3 more shots on goal. Each team had one more score. Ian Duval cashed in (his 3rd) on the best passing play of the night. Killian Hutt notched his 2nd of the season on a PP for Lethbridge's only orthodox goal of the weekend. Bison Matthew Lowry was snakebit, and even hit the post on an empty-net chance.

The Bisons are off to British California next weekend before coming home for their final two series of the semester, against Regina and Saudi Alberta. Lethbridge plays home-and-away with Mount Royal.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 1
REGINA COUGARS 2

Normally when a contender loses to Regina they outshoot them by a wide margin but Regina's goaltender steals the show. However, the Banjo-Mutts had only 20 shots on the Banjo-Cats as the Felines clamped down on the Canines Saturday in Regina.

This win, IMO, makes it official that Regina is a mid-pack team in the CW. They looked gawd-awful in the pre-season, soundly beaten by Manitoba, Sask, and Alaska.

Lucas Gore was in goal for Regina, after Andrew Hayes played Friday. Ryan Holfield started again for Sask, as he has for every game this season. Last year he split games with David Reekie every weekend. Reekie is injured now.

Matt Strueby scored his 5thand Ryan Deck his 1st for the Cougars. Strueby, Tyler Henry, and Troy Hunter account for the vast majority of Regina's goals. D-man Zach Stebner had the Huskies' goal.

IMO, Sask's record is deceptive. They were badly outshot and outplayed in their split with Manitoba and sweep of Alberta. Had they lost those games they would be 5-5 and tied with Calgary for #5. But, wins are wins and so they (justifiably) entered the weekend ranked #1 in both the national CIS Official Top Ten and the OHT35.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4
CALGARY DINOS 4

The Evil Monkeys shut down the Dinos in the Town of Bedrock to sweep the home-and-home. But for a 3-game losing skid, the Monkeys have run the table thus far. It seems that the teams replayed Friday's game. Both sides shifted goaltenders, the Dinos using Dustin Butler Friday and Jacob DeSerres Saturday, and Alberta using Kurtis Mucha Friday and Real Cyr Saturday.

Next weekend Alberta is off to Regina and Calgary hosts Sask. IMO these games will help us gauge all four of those teams a little better.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 3
MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 2

This was a series Her Majesty's Royal Kittens could not afford to lose, but the did. They did outshoot UBC but that is small consolation. This puts MRU a distant 7th in league standings. They need something dramatic, like a sweep of Lethbridge next weekend, if they want back into the race.

UBC will host the Bisons next weekend. This is traditionally a tough road-trip for the Bisons.
