The Midget “AA” King Miners did what they needed to on the final weekend of the regular season to find themselves, at least for now, atop the NorMan Midget “AA” Hockey League.
The King Miners went into Cross Lake Saturday, and came away with a 6-4 victory. Isaak Weenusk stood tall between the pipes, stopping 30 shots to pick up the win. Chase Gurniak led the way for the offence, scoring a hat trick while adding two assists. Matthew Rempel added two assists.
Sunday had the Thompson squad in Norway House, where they laid a 9-3 beating on the Northstars. Harley Horning and Brendan McKay each had a goal and three assists, Matthew Rempel and Drayden Spence each had two goals and an assist, while Kale Mayor added a pair of goals. Skylar Szocs made 30 saves for the win.
Former Norman Northstar Henry Muchikekwanape had a goal for Norway House.
The King Miners currently sit first in the league, one point ahead of the Islanders. The team now needs Norway House to beat Cross Lake Thursday in the final game of the season to maintain their position.
