The Banjo-Cats looked like they were overwhelmed by their trip to civilization. The Bisons scored early and often leaving the Kittens looking as sad and disheartened as a feline can be.

Frankly, based on tonight's performance I am wondering how Regina managed 6 wins and 2 OTLs against the rest of the league. They looked like the same sad-sacks the Bisons trampled twice in pre-season, and last year as well. They also surrendered quite meekly without the chippiness (or intensity) of the H0rny Ones two weeks ago.

Six different Bisons scored on the evening. James Henry (2nd) and Luke Cain (4th) gave the Herd a 2-0 lead before the crowd was even settled. The 1st period was then mostly one-way traffic with the Bisons doubling the Cougars 18-9 on the shot clock. A last-minute goal by Tyler Dittmer (5th) made it 3-0.

The only goal of the 2nd period came early from Brandon Lockerby (1st) on a point shot which at first they thought was deflected by Henry for his second of the night. The Bisons outshot the Hillbillies 14-5. By the end of the period each side only had one minor penalty each.

There was absolutely no threat pf a 3rd period comeback. Dylan Kelly (2nd) scored after 3 minutes and then Matthew Lowry (4th) scored shorthanded after 6. Jesse Deckert stopped 22 shots, including a breakaway from Carter Selinger in the final 2 minutes.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
5 Christensen - 2 Crowley
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee

Forwards:
23 Dittmer - 19 Duval - 26 Macaulay
21 Cowan - 9 Lowry - 10 Rowinski
29 Cain - 11 Henry - 27 Feakes
18 Kelly - 25 Ciarelli - 16 Paradis

Scratches:
G: 34 Dubyk
D: 12 Sutherland - 22 Bestland
F: 14 Green - 15 Scott - 17 Lauder - 28 Chartier

Regina

Goal:
35 Gore (30 Hayes)

Defence:
8 Friedel - 5 Reeves
4 Sonntag - 18 Nielson
7 Schneider - 2 Deck

Forwards:
29 Strueby - 10 Henry - 17 Selinger
13 Appleyard - 14 Cuthbert - 9 Penny
16 Nargang - 15 Murray - 19 King
24 Szucki - 12 Brennan - 20 Sawka

The Bisons' 3rd line was the most productive, with 3 goals. Henry (with a goal and two assists) was the 1st star, followed by Deckert and Lockerby.

Please note that Saturday's game starts at 2:30 p.m.

The H0rny Ones came close to pulling an upset. They walked into Saskatown and staked themselves to a 2-1 lead after the 1st period. But they could not hang on. They were outshot 30-11 over the final two periods and only a last minute goal by themselves made it close.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 0
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2

This one was on CanadaWest.tv, as will be the Saturday rematch. The Evil Monkeys had to fight hard for the win. Kurtis Mucha needed only 21 saves for the shutour. The final goal was an empty-netter.

These cross-town rivals played a home-and-home series in the Town of Bedrock as part of the Crowchild Classic multi-sport competition. This one went Thursday-Friday, with the New Kittens on the Block taking game 1 before the Dinos rallied to salvage a split.

Thursday's game was a defensive one. MRU built up a 3-2 after two periods, while edging Calgary 15-14 in shots. MRU then played cling on in the 3rd, being outshot 13-4 in a scoreless period.

The Dinos had the edge throughout Friday's rematch. Only a goal with 5+ minutes left broke the shutout for MRU.

Calgary once again split the games between goaltenders Jacob Deserres (Thursday) and Dustin Butler (Friday). Neither one seems to be hitting full stride.
