There were quite a few times in Saturday's AAA Stars game when head coach Norm Johnston had his head in his hands because he didn't like what he saw.

It was an exciting 6-5 win for the fans, but for him and his coaching staff, the sloppy play was all too evident.

The North Stars struck three times in the first six minutes of Friday's home game against Melville, which was enough to lead them to their fourth straight victory.

All of a sudden, the Battlefords North Stars' 3-0 lead turned to a 3-2 lead.
