The Battlefords AAA Sharks are winless no more, following an offensive output this past weekend in two wins over the Weyburn Gold Wings.

Every single Sharks player except for one registered at least one point in the back-to-back wins, as the Sharks won 9-0 on Saturday night and 7-3 on Sunday afternoon.

They are now 2-8 this season.

Ali Aitken stood out for Battlefords with six goals in the two games, two of which came shorthanded. Defenceman Maya Tupper registered five assists. The Rowley sisters, Sydney and Brooklyn, also each had four points in the two games, as did Celena Kissick.

Saturday's game was a rough one according to the gamesheet, as the teams combined for 126 penalty minutes, including a fight and six misconduct penalties.

The Sharks penalty kill went a perfect 11-for-11, but the power play couldn't cash in, going 0-for-6. 

The shots on goal in Saturday's win favoured the Sharks 36-26.

Sunday's game was significanty closer on the scoresheet, as the game was tied 1-1 after 20 minutes, and the Gold Wings went ahead 2-1 early in the second.

But the Sharks rung off three straight second-period goals to go up 4-2, before a flurry of late third-period goals made the final 7-3.

Battlefords' power play on Sunday went 2-for-4.

The Wings were outshot again on Sunday, this time only marginally, as the shot tally was 46-43 for the Sharks.

The Sharks will host the Notre Dame Hounds this coming weekend, with Saturday's game being held in Wilkie at the SaskCan Community Centre and Sunday's game moving back to Battlefords Arena.
