Stars drop two to Tisdale

It was a tough weekend for the Battlefords Stars in midget AAA hockey action, as they dropped two games to the Tisdale Trojans at the Civic Centre.

Battlefords dropped the first game Saturday to the Trojans by a 3-2 score. The Stars opened the scoring from Liam McInnis in the first period; then, with the score 2-1 in the third, Vaughn Watterodt tied it up for the Stars. But Zac Robins got the game winner in the third for the Trojans with four minutes left in the game.

Next for the Stars is a game at home at the Civic Centre on Tuesday night versus the Saskatoon Contacts.
