The Yorkton Bulldogs won their first set of back-to-back games over the weekend and it did not go by without a little bit of surprise. In a twist ending, their match with the Regina Riot was stopped just prior to the start of the third period. Officials called the game on a count of poor floor conditions at the Kinsmen Arena. A statement issued on the game sheet read the followig: "CALLED DUE TO DANGEROUS CONDITIONS." The decision resulted in an 8-2 victory for Yorkton, whose record now has them with three wins on the season.
