SJHL POWER RANKINGS EDITION XI
They finally lost. Two in a row, actually. But, back on the winning track now.
2-MELFORT MUSTANGS 36-12-4-1
Beat the Hawks, beat the North Stars.
3-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS 39-12-2-0
Four points behind Nipawin with five games left in the race for first overall.
4-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS 32-17-3-2
They’ve won 9 of their last 11 and will be in the middle of a fierce first round playoff series against Melfort.
5-ESTEVAN BRUINS 30-18-3-2
Playing better as we come down the stretch and clinching first place in the Viterra Division is a foregone conclusion.
6-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS 25-20-4-3
Three straight wins and seven wins in their last ten have opened the door to getting out of that Survivor Series and a potential 6th seed.
7-WEYBURN RED WINGS 27-22-4-1
Trailed 3-0 and 4-1 against Estevan last night before battling back for a single point, which may be huge given the logjam in the standings.
8-FLIN FLON BOMBERS 20-24-3-4
A four game road trip looms for a team that is 6-16-0-and-2 away from the Whitney Forum.
9-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS 27-21-1-4
Hounds haven’t found any traction in the second half and are, dangerously, close to slipping into the Survivor Series group.
10-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES 20-29-1-2
While unlikely, the Mils can grab the 9th seed as they trail Flin Flon by four points and play them head to head on Wednesday next week.
11-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES 10-40-0-3
4-and-0 against Yorkton, 3-5-0-and-1 against Flin Flon. 3-35-0-and-2 against the rest of the league.
12-YORKTON TERRIERS 12-36-3-2
Strangest split you may ever see: 6-5-1-0 against Estevan and Melfort. 6-31-2-and-2 against the rest of the league, and three of those wins are versus Melville.
