The bantam AAA Yellowhead Chiefs spoiled the Norman Wolves’ final pair of games at the C.A. Nesbitt Area this season by beating them 6−1 on Feb. 2 and 8−2 on Feb. 3.
Saturday’s game was a lot more one-sided of the two contests, since the Chiefs scored four unanswered goals in the first two periods, tallying 46 shots compared to the Wolves’ 10.
Even though Brady Krentz got the Wolves on the board four minutes into the third, the Chiefs responded with another two goals, and wouldn’t let their opponents generate any offence in response.
On Sunday, the Wolves did a better job of keeping up with the visiting team for the first 25 minutes.
Even though the Chiefs scored on just their second shot of the game, the Wolves took the lead with two quick goals at the beginning of the second period courtesy of Cheechoo Lathlin and Ian Snooks.
However, this brief comeback was quickly cut short by the Chiefs’ offence, which recaptured the lead with a quick pair of goals from Cole Topham and Aiden Sotas.
From there, the Chiefs completely took over and would go on to score another five goals before the end of regulation time, resulting in an 8−2 final.
This latest pair of wins helped the Chiefs secure their first place position in the league’s Bantam 1 West division, while the Wolves are still struggling in last place.
The Wolves’ last series of games for the 2018−19 regular season will take place in Flin Flon Feb. 16−17, where they will be taking on the third-pace Southwest Cougars.
