In the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League, the Notre Dame Hounds have only lost three games all season in 40 games played—just one in regulation.

The Hounds proved their mettle on Saturday as they beat the Prince Albert Mintos 1-0 in a defensive slugfest at the Art Hauser Centre. 

For the first 52:33, the game was a scoreless tie. But on the Hounds’ 34th shot, Notre Dame defenceman Avery Winslow broke the deadlock and gave the Hounds the all-important first goal.

The Mintos were missing a lot of firepower from their lineup. Kyrell Sopotyk, who scored 42 goals last season, missed Saturday’s action with a shoulder injury. Austin Lamotte served his second of a three-game suspension for an interference major from Sunday’s game against the Saskatoon Blazers. Luke Nkwama served his one-game suspension for a check from behind against the Saskatoon Contacts on Thursday.

The Mintos are back in action on Sunday on the road against the Beardy’s Blackhawks.

The Mintos are in third place in the SMAAAHL, just three points ahead of the Tisdale Trojans who have a game in hand.

Bears 3 Hounds 1

The Prince Albert Northern Bears won their game against the Notre Dame Hounds, 3-1 in Wilcox on Saturday night.

Miranda Heidt, Hannah Koroll and Jadyn Kushniruk all scored for the Bears.

The Bears extend their lead on the SFMAAAHL standings with their 19th win in 25 games. They sit two points ahead of the Saskatoon Stars.
