Warman Wildcats Isaiah Arnold  breaks in alone on Prince Albert Mintos goaltender Jayden Kraus

The Warman U18AAA Wildcats are entering the post-season on a positive note after winning their last three games of the regular season.

On Wednesday, February 22 they hit the road to Tisdale to take on the Trojans and came away with a 5-2 victory.

Tylan Henrikson opened the scoring for the Wildcats midway through the first period.

They extended their lead  as Ty Dauvin found the twine in the first minute of the second period.

The lead was 3-0 as Dayne Beuker scored his first goal as a Warman Wildcat. The affiliate player from the U15AA Humboldt Broncos was one of many players stepping into the lineup since the team had key players away at the Canada Games.

Tisdale made a game of it, scoring an unassisted short- handed goal followed by a powerplay marker.

Away game star Jack Janzen regained the two goal advantage early in the third period, and Carsyn Dyck sealed the deal with an empty netter in the last minute of the game.

The final two games of the season were home games at the Warman Home Centre Communiplex.

On Friday, February 24 they hosted the Prince Albert Mintos.

In the first period the Mintos got on the board first on a goal by Roper Blanchard. The Wildcats responded with goals by Dawson Gerwing and Jeter Korte. Chase Hanson’s howitzer from the top of the faceoff circle increased the lead in the second period.

Warman shut down the Mintos until Logan Pickford was able to score with the Prince Albert goalie pulled for an extra attacker late in the game.

Warman was able to control the puck for the final seconds and came away with the hard- fought 3-2 win.

Wildcat goaltender Luke Brunen was solid in net, making 27 saves for the win.

The final regular season game was a Sunday matinee contest against the Swift Current Legionnaires.

Both teams came up with a defensive gem. Warman’s Cade Hynd scored the only goal at 12:06 of the third period.

Wildcat  goaltender Corben Schnurr made 29 saves to earn his sixth shutout of the year. The talented rookie ended up with a 1-93 goals against average, good enough for second in the league.

The top goalie in the league was Regina’s John MacPherson who led the league with a 1.75 goals against average. Like Schnurr he is a Martensville native and Marauders alumni.
