Mustangs One Win Away

By Branden Crowe, 04/15/15, 11:00PM CST


The Melfort Mustangs are one win away from an SJHL Championship.

The Mustangs took a commanding 3-0 series lead with a 4-1 win in game three last night in front of 2055 fans.

Jay Aasen sent the rowdy Palace crowd into a frenzy just 90 seconds into the game with his first of the playoffs.

It was the 6th straight game the Mustangs have opened the scoring.

Adam Fauchoux would make it 2-0 later in the period as he notched his 14th of the post-season.

The Mustangs who have been plagued by bad 2nd periods put together a solid middle frame and capped it off with a late Travis Mayan goal to give them a 3-0 lead after 40.

The Hounds would get on the board in the third on a goal mouth scramble as Andrew Cummings got on the board with his first of the series.

Teal Sobkowicz would seal it with an empty netter late in the 3rd period and set off a standing ovation from the Palace Faithful.

Richard Palmer made 20 saves for the win while Alex Thibideau only faced 14 shots but allowed 3 goals in the process.

The Mustangs will try and wrap the series tonight in Notre Dame.

The pre-game show begins on CK750 at 7:10 with Branden Crowe.
