Wildcats vs Pembina Valley
Feb 13, 2016, 3:19 pm

The Westman Wildcats were defeated 4-3 in a shootout on Friday night in Manitou.  

The Wildcats got off to a rough start in the 1st period, giving up an even strength goal at the 16:29 mark of the opening period.  Pembina Valley would stretch that lead to 2-0 with a powerplay goal midway through the period.  Each team took 1 minor penalty.  Pembina Valley outshot the Wildcats 10-9 in the frame.

In the 2nd period, the Wildcats came out much more focused and energized.  They slowly began to dominate the game territorially and generate numerous scoring opportunities.  They were rewarded at the 8:59 mark of the period when Courtney Ganske fired a shot top shelf with the assist going to Ashton Bell.  Ganske would score again on the powerplay with 3:23 remaining in the period to tie the game.  Bell tallied the lone assist. Unfortunately, PV would score on a powerplay of their own with 56 seconds remaining in the period as the puck deflected off a Wildcats defender.  Each team took 1 minor penalty.  The Wildcats outshot PV 16-3 in the period.

The Wildcats tied the game midway through the 3rd period as Andrea Sanderson finished off a pretty passing play.  Courtney Ganske and Ashton Bell picked up the assists on the play.  Westman pushed hard to take the lead but the PV goaltender stood tall.  Westman took 4 of 6 penalties in the period and outshot PV 11-7.  

Overtime solved nothing and PV were able to score on the 5th shot of the shootout to win the game.  

Jenna Marshall suffered the loss in net despite making a couple of game saving stops when the Wildcats worked to tie the game.

The Wildcats finish the regular season with 17 regulation wins - 5 regulation losses - 1 overtime/shootout win - and 5 overtime/shootout losses for 41 points.  They now await the conclusion of the regular season to see who they will play in the 1st round of playoffs.  Game 1 is this Wednesday, Feb 17th, in Hartney at 7:30 PM.

Wildcats vs Yellowhead
Feb 11, 2016, 7:40 am

The Westman Wildcats defeated the Yellowhead Chiefs 2-1 last night in Hartney in front of a large and raucous crowd.

Andrea Sanderson helped the Wildcats get off to a great start scoring on a breakaway 31 seconds into the 1st period, with the assists going to Mackenzie Roach and Courtney Ganske. The remainder of the period was a back and forth affair as both teams fought for open ice.  Yellowhead outshot Westman 10-7 in the period.  Each team received one minor penalty.

The Chiefs returned the favour 15 seconds into the 2nd period as some wet ice behind the Wildcats net led to a turnover that resulted in the tying goal.  It took a couple of minutes but the Wildcats were able to overcome the momentum that Yellowhead received with the quick goal and get their game back in order.  Westman went on the powerplay with just under 5 minutes remaining in the period where Ashton Bell was able to score off a great pass across the seam from Katie Crowe at the 4:22 mark of the period.  Courtney Ganske picked up the other assist.  The 2nd period would end with the Wildcats leading 2-1.  Westman outshot the Chiefs 8-4 in the period and the Chiefs took 3 of the 4 penalties.

In the 3rd period the Wildcats got off to a rocky start again for the first couple of minutes but they were able to clean up the play in their own end and get back to their puck control game. Their penalty kill and shot blocking was the difference in the period as they would have to kill off two penalties in the 3rd including one in the final four minutes of the game.  The game would end 2-1.  Westman outshot the Chiefs 3-2 in the period and took 3 of 4 minor penalties.

Kaitie Slator picked up the victory in net, stopping 15 of 16 shots on net.

Wildcats vs Central Plains
Feb 6, 2016, 9:55 am

The Westman Wildcats were defeated 2-1 last night in Hartney.

Sheridan Oswald gave the Capitals a 1-0 lead midway through the 1st period on a wrist shot that squeaked its way through the Wildcats goalie's equipment and found the back of the net. That would be the only scoring of the period as the post save the day twice for the Wildcats in the final few minutes of the frame.  Shots in the period were 11-6 for Central Plains.  The Wildcats killed off the lone penalty of the period.

The 2nd period really tightened up for the 1st half of the period as both teams struggled to generate any solid scoring changes until the midway point of the frame when Oswald, who was left unchecked, scooped up a rebound and found the back of the net to put the Capitals ahead 2-0.  The Wildcats seemed to get their feet moving after that and generated a couple of good scoring chances, including a 2 on 1 chance where they hit the post. The period ended 2-0, however, with the Capitals outshooting the Wildcats 7-6.  There were no penalties in the frame. 

In the 3rd period the Wildcats came out hard and were rewarded as Ashton Bell scored to make it 2-1.  Brianna Williams and Shae Vallotton assisted on the goal. The Wildcats pushed for the equalizer and missed on a couple of glorious chances to tie the game but, in the end, the Capitals hung on for the win.  Shots in the 3rd period were 8-4 in favour of Westman.  The Wildcats took the lone penalty in the period as they took a late one in the 3rd as they pressed for the tie.

Kaitie Slator suffered the loss in net.  Final shots were 22-20 in favour of Central Plains.  The Wildcats took 2 penalties while the Capitals took 0.
