The TS&M Bantam Bruins extended a winstreak to five in a row on Friday as the doubled the Notre Dame Hounds in the Duncan McNeill Arena.

The Hounds got the scoring started on a power play less than three minutes into the game off the stick of Jack Hillier. Connor Hewitt tied it up for Estevan before Garrett Hachey gave Notre Dame a 2-1 lead with all zeros on the clock to end the first period. Mason Kukura then scored the only goal of the second frame to knot the two teams at a pair each.

Carson Birnie gave the Bruins the lead with less than three minutes to play, followed by Kukura potting his second of the game to give the visitors a 4-2 victory.

"We actually got stronger as the game went on," observed Head Coach Blaine Chrest, "We kind of started slow...had quite a few penalties in the first period and a half. As the game went on, we kind of took the game over and in the third period, I think we had 27 shots on net to finally get a couple by their goalie."

He noted that if wasn't for Notre Dame's goaltender Andrew Kreis' efforts against 50 shots, the score would have been much larger, but it was Estevan's Jackson Miller who held his team in the game. Miller stopped 39 of 41 shots in the victory.

"Jackson had a really strong game...he showed that he's really come into form, and is going to be one of the top goalies in the league going forward."

The team gets a break from SAAHL over the upcoming weekend, but several players will head to the Saskatchewan Hockey Association's SaskFirst Regional camps November 30th to December 3rd.
