In their first game the Sharks overcame a 1-0 deficit to get the win. Logan Halter and Madison Guitard scored in the second period and Destiny Fiddler scored in the third on the power play to earn the win. Haylie Biever stopped 30 of 31 in net for the win.

In the rematch Sunday, Weyburn took a 3-0 lead before the Sharks responded with three of their own from Ryder Milne (power play), Kyra Williamson and Kiana McNinch (shorthanded) in the second period.

But a late second period goal by Ally Kosteniuk would eventually prove the game-winner. The Wings added a power play goal from Sydney Keddie for insurance in the third for a 5-3 final score.

The Sharks now sit at three wins and two losses after the weekend, second behind Swift Current in the league standings. Swift Current has 11 points to the Sharks nine. 

The next action for the Sharks is at home Saturday, Oct. 19 against Regina Rebels.
