Koen Senft is on a roll.
The 17-year-old forward scored two goals — giving him seven in three games — as the Regina Pat Canadians defeated the Yorkton Secon Maulers 5-1 in Saskatchewan Male AAA Hockey League action Tuesday at the Co-operators Centre.
Over the first 33 games of the season, Senft scored seven times — a total he has doubled over the past three contests.
He tallied twice Friday in a 3-0 victory over the visiting Prince Albert Mintos before registering a hat trick Sunday in a 5-4 shootout loss to the host Warman Wildcats. Then came Tuesday’s two-goal outing, which helped Regina improve its record to 23-6-0-4.
Jonah Siverston, Noel Englot and Steven Steranka also scored for Regina. Shaden Duliak answered for Yorkton.
The Pat Canadians are to return to action Thursday against the Notre Dame Hounds (8 p.m., Duncan McNeill Arena, Wilcox).
COUGARS NO. 2
The University of Regina Cougars have moved up one spot, to second, in the weekly U Sports women’s basketball rankings.
The Queen’s Gaels (14-0) are first. Regina and the third-ranked University of Saskatchewan Huskies are tied for first in Canada West at 12-2.
If the Cougars and Huskies finish the regular season with identical records, Regina will get the nod by virtue of having swept a two-game set that was played Nov. 11 and 12.
Six regular-season games remain for the Cougars, who are to play host to the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns on Friday and Saturday. Both games are set for 6 p.m., at the Centre for Kinesiology, Health and Sport.
Regina then welcomes the University of Calgary Dinos (Feb. 3 and 4) before concluding the regular season in Edmonton against the MacEwan University Griffins (Feb. 10 and 11).
The Cougars meet the same teams in men’s basketball. Home games on the next two weekends are set for 8 p.m.
RED WINGS RALLY
Simon Pollock had two of the Weyburn Red Wings‘ five third-period goals during their 6-4 Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League victory over the Kindersley Klippers at Crescent Point Place on Tuesday.
Jakob Kalin and Ryley Morgan each had one goal and two assists for Weyburn. Cash Arntsen scored twice for Kindersley.
Also on Tuesday, Bradley Blake and Alex Izyk each scored two goals for the Battlefords North Stars in their 9-3 victory over the visiting La Ronge Ice Wolves. Kian Bell added his league-leading 36th goal as Battlefords improved to 35-3-2-1.
