The Nipawin Hawks extended their winning streak to seven games, as they escaped with a 5-4 win over Melfort.

The Hawks led 4-1 in the third, before the Mustangs came all the way back to tie, only to have Nipawin's Jesse Bernard pot the winner with 2:49 to play, giving Melfort a crushing regulation loss as they look for a playoff spot.

The Hawks had a 4-goal second period, thanks to Mitch Doell, Eli Lichtenwald, Taylor Balog (1g-1a) and Ben Johnstone.  Wheaton King and Tad Kozun had two assists each.

Cody Brown, Logan Sceviour, Preston Eshenko and Brandon Parrone scored for Melfort.

** The Mustangs will welcome Yorkton on Friday. There will be a live auction after the game for some of the Special Edition 25th Anniversary Dekalb Jersey's. 

We'll be live auctioning off.....
