On Friday, Kara Kondrat and Kenzie Lausberg scored for the Huskies, while defensively the team held TWU to a lone goal in the first.

Saturday’s meeting was worth celebrating for two reasons — not only did Saskatchewan end regulation time and the two overtime periods tied 1-1 with TWU before going on to secure the victory with a shootout, but it was head coach Steve Kook‘s 400th Canada West game.

On the men’s side, it was a high-scoring affair that ended with a 7-6 victory for the Dogs over the host Spartans on Friday.

BASKETBALL

Saskatchewan’s women’s team turned in a pair of dominant performances over the weekend while playing host to the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack.

On Friday night, led by a 27-point performance by Carly Ahlstrom, the Huskies defeated TRU 90-43.

The green-and-white followed that up on Saturday with a 84-31 win as Huskie Gage Grassick led both teams with 20 points.

The men’s team also played host to the Wolfpack in two games, but failed to secure a victory in either.

While the teams battled back-and-forth in both games, each ended in favour of TWU as they won 85-79 on Friday and 80-74 on Saturday.

Alexander Dewar led the Huskies in scoring on both nights, with 31 and 20 points, respectively.

Both Saskatchewan teams hit the road for their first action of the calendar year, taking on the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.

The Huskie men split their games, winning 3-1 on Friday (23-25, 25-22, 27-25 and 25-19), but fell 3-1 (25-21, 23-25, 19-25 and 20-25) on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the women fell in three straight sets on both nights, losing 15-25, 15-25 and 17-25 on Friday as well as 12-25, 22-25 and 21-25 the following night.

Blades fall to Broncos, defeat Rebels in weekend action

It took a shootout to crown the host Swift Current Broncos as the 5-4 victor in Friday’s Western Hockey League game against the Saskatoon Blades (26-6-2-1).

Swift Current’s Josh Filmon scored at 16:01 into the third period to give his team the 4-3 lead, but Egor Sidorov evened things up for the Blades on the power play just under three minutes later.

Neither team was able to net the game winner in what was left of regulation time, nor in overtime.

In the shootout, all three Blades players were denied as were two of Broncos shooters, but Filman managed to get one by Saskatoon netminder Ethan Chadwick to give Swift Current the win.

That loss was Saskatoon’s fourth in a row, but the team managed to bounce back and snap their streak on Saturday as they posted a 6-2 win over the Red Deer Rebels.

Tied 1-1 in the opening period, Saskatoon went on to score five goals in a row, starting with Conner Roulette at 16:21 into the first and ending with Trevor Wong‘s second of the night at 5:32 into the third period.

Ryker Singer added his and Red Deer’s second goal of the game late in the third, but the visitors weren’t able to complete the comeback.
