The Yorkton Maulers topped Battlefords Sunday.

YORKTON - It was a good weekend for the Yorkton Maulers as they chalked up a pair of Saskatchewan Male AAA Hockey League wins over Battlefords. 

Saturday the Maulers scored two first period goals at the Westland Insurance Arena in Yorkton and skated to a 6-3 win. 

Alex Morrison, Edward Knittig were the first period Mauler snipers, while Lee Burden notched one for the visiting Stars. 

Ayden Belanger knotted the score 2-2 for Battlefords only to have Morrison respond with his second of the contest to restore a Mauler lead 3-2 through two periods. 

Knittig scored his second of the contest to make it 4-2 early in the third, before Jack Forrester made it close again with the third Stars goal. 

Kyle Weisgarber and Leo Jewitt scored late for the Maulers to salt away the 6-3 win. 

Blake Sittler was the winning netminder facing 22 shouts in the Mauler net. 

The teams hooked up again Sunday afternoon in what would prove a lower scoring affair. 

The Maulers took the lead through 20-minutes as Morrison scored the only goal of the first period. 

It was 2-0 through 40-minutes as Luc Fortier scored the only goal of the middle stanza. 

Ethan Sautner cut the Yorkton lead in half with an early third period goal for the Stars, before Shaden Duliak added an insurance marker for a 3-1 Mauler win. 

Sittler was again the winning netminder facing 32-shots. 

The Maulers host Tisdale Wednesday in their next game.
