Oahe Capital Bantams sweep home series with Yankton Miracle

Saturday brought a back and forth battle between the two evenly matched teams.  Yankton led at the end of the first period 3-2 with the two Capitals goals coming from Ashton Griese.  Jonathan Lyons and Chris Schultz were credited with the assists on the second goal scored by Griese.  Yankton maintained the lead at the end of the second period with a score of 5-3.  Turner Starr was the lonely Capital to score in the second period.  Oahe battled back to tie the game with 6 minutes left on the clock with an unassisted goal by Jaden Flor followed by another unassisted goal by Isaac Polak.  Two more goals would clench the win for the Capitals.  The final goals scored by Lyons with the assist from Polak and Starr with the assist from Chris Schultz and Dre Berndt.

Colin Lee recorded 14 saves in the net for the Capitals.  Yankton would score one final goal to bring the final score to 7-6.  The Capitals carried the momentum into their Sunday afternoon game with another win over the Miracles.  The Capitals scored right out the gate and never looked back after a goal from Berndt and the assist credited to Griese. A goal in the second period from Ayden Anderson with the assist from Schulz, put the Caps up 2-1.  A strong scoring third period from Oahe was more than Yankton could recover from with goals from Polak, Griese with the assist from Lyons and Flor, and Polak with assist from Starr. Kieran Duffy recorded 29 saves in the net for the Capitals.  The final score of 5-3 rounded out the weekend with another Capitals win.
