The Midget AA John Hulbert Construction Wings were at home for a pair of games on the weekend. The friendly confines of Crescent Point Place, though, weren’t enough to help the Wings to a win, as they dropped both of the games.

Saturday, the Melville Midget Millionaires were in town. It was a back and forth game, but in the end, it was the road team who won the game, with a final of 3-2 in overtime.

The Millionaires were first on the board when Mason Hoffman scored with 11:01 left in the opening period. Weyburn replied shortly after the first intermission when Hudson Hall netted his seventh of the year just 1:24 into the second period. Tanner Rowland was credited with the assist.

Melville would regain the lead shortly after the halfway mark of the third period when Ethan Lang got the puck past Matt Dutchak with 8:21 remaining. The Wings were undeterred, though, as Sam Chittenden scored a power-play goal less than three minutes later. His tally was assisted by Gavin Doud and Parker Douglas.

With the game knotted up at two, an overtime period was needed. In overtime, Hoffman would score the game-winner with 2:49 left on the clock.

Sunday, the Wings had the chance to bounce back from the overtime loss as Prairie Storm was in town. It would be the road team once again who skated to victory, though, the final score again 3-2.

Weyburn opened up the scoring in the game when Mitchell McDonald found the back of the net with 4:40 left in the first period. He was assisted on the goal by Parker Douglas and Baron Lawrence.

Prairie Storm came out roaring in the third period, scoring three goals in just under four minutes.

The first goal came at the 1:51 mark when Lane Novak beat Kobe Kmita. Novak would then score his second of the game just two minutes later on the power play. Zach Cain rounded out the scoring for the visitors at the 5:33 mark of the third.

The Wings would get one more goal, as Brogan Schmeltzer scored with 5:31 left on the clock, assisted by Hall and Kale Williamson.

The Wings are now off until the weekend. They will be at home again for a pair of games, as the Moose Jaw Warriors are in town Saturday, and the Yorkton Terriers on Sunday.
