Oliver scores game-winner for Oil Caps

Elkhorn’s Curtis Oliver scored the game-winning goal with 4:55 left in regulation time for the Virden Oil Capitals as they edged the host Waywayseecappo Wolverines 3-2 on Saturday night in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

In Saturday’s other games, it was: Dauphin Kings 6, Swan Valley Stampeders 5 (SO); OCN Blizzard 5, Winkler Flyers 1; and Selkirk Steelers 6, Steinbach Pistons 3.

Sunday’s games featuring the Kings at the Blizzard, the Wolverines visiting Neepawa and the Oil Capitals hosting the Stampeders were all postponed due to poor weather and road conditions.

At Waywayseecappo, Mack Hardy and Corey Haverstick also scored for Virden (27-13-3), while Melita’s Lucas Oliver had a pair of helpers. The Oil Capitals are still tied atop the Sher-Wood Division with the Kings.

Cole McCaig had a goal for the Wolverines (12-29-2), while fellow Brandonite Justin Holderstopped 25 of the 28 shots he faced. Alex Keena also scored for the Wolverines.

Kings 6 Stampeders 5 (SO)

At Swan River, Brandonite Brayden Cuthbert had two goals and an assist in regulation time and then scored the shootout winner for the Kings (28-14-1), who also got a goal from Killarney’s Aubrey Chapman. Clearwater’s Avery Hunt had a goal for the Stampeders (19-26-2), who rallied from a 4-0 first-period deficit to force extra time. Swan Valley netminder Graham Hunt made 52 saves in regulation and overtime.

Blizzard 5 Flyers 1

At The Pas, Rhett Law, who’s from McCreary, opened and closed the scoring for the Blizzard (17-24-4), and added an assist. Michael Sofilias was the only Flyer (14-29-4) to beat Killarney’s Brian Archibald, who made 38 saves for the Blizzard.

Steelers 6 Pistons 3

At Steinbach, Shane Gingera recorded his first hat trick of the season as the league-leading Steelers (38-6-2) stretched their winning streak to 18 games. Connor Lockhart had a goal and an assist for the Pistons (33-12-2), who are in second place in the Addison Division.
