Two-win weekend for Elk Point Elks

The Elk Point Elks won 6-5 and 8-6 over the past weekend.

ELK POINT – Elk Point Elks topped off Friday night’s 6-5 home ice victory over the St. Walburg Eagles with an 8-6 win the following evening when they headed across the border to take on the Hillmond Hitmen. The teams play in the SaskAlta Senior Hockey League. 

The visiting Eagles were first on Friday’s scoreboard, but Dyson Karbashewski, assisted by Austin Caouette and Cory Wozniak, and Calvin Laschowski, assisted by Tristan Kean and Brayden Labant, put the Elks in the lead by the end of the first period. Dyson Roy, off assists by Orrie Wood and Matt Boulianne, and Laschowski, assisted by Labant, bumped that lead to 4-1 before St. Walburg scored their second of the evening.

The visitors added another pair before Laschowski and Labant combined talents for the second time of the game, and then the Eagles added another to tie the score late in the third. Just over a minute was left on the clock when Bailey Lonsberry slammed in the winner off assists by Curtis Witney and Kean for the win.

Saturday’s game also started off with a goal by the opposition, but it took Arron Gagne only a minute and a half to tie the score, assisted by Labant.

Labant, assisted by Bryton Beattie, added another to the scoreboard at the end of the period, a full 10 minutes after the Elks’ second goal, by Dyson Karbashewski assisted by Brett Bacque and Wood hit its mark.

Labant and Beattie teamed up for two more goals within four minutes in the second frame, with one Hillmond goal added to the board in between them. Hillmond added three goals in the third period, each of them answered by another from the Elks, two of them by Labant, assisted by Beattie in the first and Roy in the second, with Roy scoring one of his own in between, assisted by Beattie and Labant for an impressive 8-6 final score.

This week, the Elks have two home games, with the Lashburn Flyers coming to visit on Friday evening and the Kitscoty Monarchs on Saturday for their final games of 2022, before taking a break until Jan. 7, 2023.
