Here is a rundown of the hockey action over the past week for Battlefords and area teams.
There was a scary injury for a player from the Battlefords AAA Sharks in female AAA midget play on the weekend.
The Sharks report that Keera Tiringer was taken away in an ambulance during their game Saturday night with the Prince Albert Bears. The team reports on Twitter that her CT scan was good and she was back home recovering.
In that game the Bears won in double overtime 3-2, scoring on a 4-on-3 power play goal from Kate Ball. Brooklyn Rowley and Madison Samsom scored both Sharks goals. Hailie Biever stopped 50 of 53 Bears shots.
The second game on Sunday saw the Bears beat the Sharks 3-1. Sydney Rowley had the lone Sharks goal in the second period. The next Sharks action is Saturday afternoon in Weyburn.
In male AAA action, the Battlefords Stars have dropped three in a row to open their season.
They lost 5-1 at home last Tuesday against the Saskatoon Contacts, and then dropped two weekend home games to the Regina Pat Canadians by 6-2 and 4-1 scores.
Josh Groenwold scored the only Stars goal in the game against the Contacts, who roared back with five goals in a row to win that contest.
Against the Pat Canadians, the Stars got goals from Colby Ralston and then from Luke Fennig on Saturday night, but four unanswered Regina goals sunk the Stars. The lone Stars’ goal in the Sunday contest was a power play marker from Fennig in the second period after Regina built a 3-0 lead on three power play goals in a row.
The Stars’ next action was scheduled for Wednesday night at home to the Saskatoon Blazers.
