It was an exciting 7-6 game yesterday in Saskatoon as the U18 West Central Wheat Kings took down the Saskatoon Screaming Eagles for their first points of the season.

The first period was busy with 5 goals, as the Wheat Kings entered the second down 3-2. Each team would score in the second to make it a 4-3 game headed into the third, and then another 5 goal period in the third set up an exciting overtime.

West Central was down 6-3 at one point in the third, but mustered 3 goals in the last five minutes to tie up the game and set up this overtime winner by Austin Shepherd from Leighton Partington!

The Wheat Kings next action is set for Saturday afternoon in Shellbrook, against the Parkland Elks.
