Another weekend of wins for the Humboldt Broncos.
The Broncos played a pair of games this weekend as they travelled to the Battlefords to take on the North Stars on Friday before returning home and hosting the Weyburn Red Wings on Saturday. The green and gold didn’t disappoint as they came away with 5-1 and 4-3 (OT) wins, respectively, extending their winning streak to six games.
Friday night was 2004-born rookie, Matthew Perkins’ coming out party. Perkins netted his first career hattrick, and his third straight game with a goal. Alec Saretzky scored his league leading 12th of the season, and Quinn Myles scored his first career SJHL goal to round out the scoring.
Rayce Ramsay stopped 24 of 25 for his 11th win on the season.
Saturday night was back in Humboldt where that Broncos have been perfect, accumulating a 6-0-0-0 record so far this season.
Thew Red Wings scored the game’s opening goal and took a 1-0 lead into the second period.
In the middle frame however, the Broncos dominated. Logan Kurki, Connor McGrath, and Cody Hough scored consecutive goals to give the Broncos a 3-1 lead, while limiting the Wings to just one shot on net the entire period.
The Broncos relaxed a bit in the third period and evidently, let the lead slip away with back-to-back goals from Weyburn to tie the game up 3-3 and force overtime.
In overtime, after Rayce Ramsay made a pair of key saves to keep the game alive, Matthew Perkins was once again the hero, scoring for the fourth straight game and providing the game winning goal.
The Broncos have now won six games in a row and are tied with the Flin Flon Bombers for the top spot in the SJHL.
The Broncos will welcome in the Kindersley Klippers on Tuesday, November 2nd looking to extend their winning ways to seven.
