Leading into Friday's home game against the Melfort Mustangs, it seemed that North Stars captain Layne Young had pretty much done it all this season.

His 18 points in seven games were almost laughable.

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.
