The top two teams in the Sask West hockey league continued their winning streaks to start the season this past weekend. 

The Kindersley Senior Klippers kicked things off with a 7-3 victory against the Unity Miners on Friday night.  The Klippers out-shot the Miners 32-23 on the night and saw a 5 point game from former Junior Klipper Kyle Donaldson, who had 1 goal and 4 assists.  Kyle Cummings contributed 2 goals for the Klippers on the night, while Unity's Kristian St. Onge also lit the lamp twice.  With the win Kindersley move to 6-0 on the season, the two teams will meet again soon, as Kindersley will once again host Unity this Friday from West Central Events Centre.

Meanwhile the Wilkie Outlaws moved to 7-0 on the season with a wins over the Luseland Mallards on Friday and  the Macklin Mohawks on Sunday.  While the Mallards posed little threat to the Outlaws who took a 10-2 victory, the Mohakws put up one of the biggest challenges to Wilkie this season.

The Mohawks would take an early lead in the first with a goal from Wyatt Watson, but Wilkie would answer before the end of the 1st.  In the 2nd Derek and Ryne Keller would each contribute a goal for the Outlaws while the Mohawks could only get on the score-sheet once, making it 3-2 heading into the third.  The Mohawks would tie the game soon after, on Watson's second of the game, but the Outlaws would answer with two of their own (5-3 Outlaws).  Brian Hillis would get the Mohawks back in the game with a late goal but it wouldn't be enough as Wilkie would take the game 5-4. 

With the wins Wilkie currently leads the league with 14 points, with Kindersley hot on their heels with 12.  The two teams meet for the first time this season December 15th from Wilkie, in a game that the entire SWHL will be paying attention to.
