ELK POINT – The Elk Point Elks of the SaskAlta Senior Hockey League delighted their home town crowd last Friday night when the Dewberry Mustangs came to visit.
The Elks' first goal came from Brayden Labant, assisted by Christian Nypower and Jean-Guy Boisvert, less than a minute and a half into the game.
Nypower, assisted by Bryton Beattie, would add a second marker for the Elks with 6:25 left in the period, just under a minute before Kale Myshak would put the Mustangs on the scoreboard.
Myshak then tied the game before the middle of the second frame, assisted by Mitch Walker; but Morgan Greve wasted no time re-establishing the lead, with help from Curtis Witney and Beattie, keeping the Elks out in front for the rest of the second period and into the third.
Lee Popescul’s goal for the Mustangs, assisted by Austin Hines, tied the score again for all of 21 seconds before Boisvert, off assists by Nypower and Jordan Wozniak, started a volley of goals, followed by Greve, assisted by Witney; and then Witney scoring unassisted to take a three goal lead.
Ty McNab scored the Mustangs’ final goal, assisted by Jacob McCormack, while Labant added the Elks’ final, unassisted, for a final score of 7-4 in the Elks' favour.
This weekend will see the Elks head over the border to take on the St. Walburg Eagles on Friday night and to Onion Lake to play the Border Chiefs on Saturday.
The Elks’ next home game is on Saturday, Dec. 3 against the Meadow Lake Broncos.
