The Estevan TS&M bantam AA Bruins picked up three of a possible four points in their games on home ice this weekend.
The bantam Bruins scored three times in the first period en route to a 5-2 win over the Notre Dame Hounds on Friday night.
Kaden Chrest opened the scoring midway through the first period. After Notre Dame tied the game a couple of minutes later, Chrest and Mason Kukura tallied less than two minutes apart late in the frame for a 3-1 advantage.
Colby Cuddington scored midway through the second to give Estevan a 4-1 lead, and while the Hounds scored late in the stanza to pull within two, Carson Birnie would get a goal in the third to restore the three-goal advantage.
Mason Fichter had both of Estevan goals in a 2-2 tie with the Battlefords Barons on Sunday afternoon. Fichter’s first goal came eight seconds into the game to open the scoring, and his second in the middle period gave Estevan a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes.
The Barons notched the tying goal late in the third.
Jackson Miller was in goal for both games.
Estevan (10-8-3) will visit the Saskatoon Generals on Jan. 12 and the Warman Wildcats the following day.
