Mauler effort found lacking

The Maulers were in Regina last Thursday, where the host Pat Canadians rolled from the outset.

Carter Belitski, Adam Kydd and Sebastian Eger scored for Regina to make it 3-0 through 20-minutes.

In the second Cal Caragata and Matt Millette added to the home team’s total to make it a 5-0 score through two periods.

In the third Carson Whyte with two, and Caragata with his second of the game, rounded out an 8-0 win for the Pat Canadians.

The online game information showed Drayden Ramage starting in net for Regina facing only five shots through two periods, with Damion Linkskog finishing the game, facing four shots in the third.

“Give them credit they’re a good team,” said Mauler coach Dalane Lamb, who then admitted the Mauler effort was not what it needed to be. “When you come out without the right effort and the right mentality, it makes it easy in the other team.”

Saturday the Maulers were in Moose Jaw where the Generals took a 1-0 lead through 20-minutes on a goal by Cody Davis.

In the second Carter Dereniwsky tied the game for Yorkton, only to have a goal with only 1:11 left in the period by Steven Kessering re-establish a one-goal lead for Moose Jaw.

In the third the home side would add goals by Brendan Kemp and Evan Sare to round out a 4-1 win.

Aiden Elmy took the loss for Yorkton facing 52 shots in goal.

Lamb said even though the Maulers have won only five games in 35 outings this season, players need to still find “some pride in their personal game,” as the season winds down.

“There’s just not enough guys doing that, and it’s starting to show on the scoreboard in our games,” he said.
