North Stars beat Weyburn as Urbanski returns

Oct. 5 - The Battlefords North Stars got their tenth win in 11 games Saturday night in Weyburn, as they decisively topped the Red Wings 4-1.

The story of the game was the return of Matthias Urbanski to the ice one day after being cut in the face by a skate in a game versus Estevan the night before. Urbanski scored twice in the win for the North Stars in Weyburn.

It was also a big night for Captain Matthew Fletcher, who scored the first North Stars goal in the first period and their fourth goal in the third period. Fletcher also assisted on both of Urbanski’s goals.

Ben Hiltz scored the only Weyburn goal in the third period.
