Rio Grande Valley forward Tyler Bruneteau scored all four goals in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Lone Star Brahmas.

Soo Eagles 4 @ Springfield Jr. Blues 7 – The Springfield offense erupted for seven goals completing a weekend sweep of the Eagles. The Eagles led 2-1 after the 1st period on goals from Darren Brady and Derek Lodermeier. Nick Belger had Springfield’s goal. However, the Jr. Blues would explode for five goals in the 2nd period, two from Trevor Stone and others from David Dekorte, Oliver Takacsi-Nagy and Logan Wendling. That trumped Soo goals from Michele Marchetti and Jacob McDowell. Dekorte added his second of the game in the 3rd period. Boxscore

Lone Star Brahmas 2 @ Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees 4 – Third-year NAHL forward Tyler Bruneteau had a game of his career as he scored all four goals helping the Killer Bees to a 4-2 win and complete a weekend sweep of the Brahmas. Bruneteau scored the lone goal in the 1st period. After Anthony Mousseau tied the game at 1-1 late in the 2nd period, Bruneteau responded with a power play goal to put Rio ahead 2-1.  Two more power play goals in the 3rd period from Bruneteau secured the 4-2 win for the Killer Bees. Ryan Watson had the other tally for Lone Star. Boxscore

Coulee Region Chill 2 @ Fairbanks Ice Dogs 1 – The Chill will leave Fairbanks with peace of mind that they took two of three games over the weekend, which is an impressive feat. That is thanks to 24 saves from NAHL September Goaltender of the Month Adam Carlson in a 2-1 win over the Ice Dogs. Lonnie Clary would get the home side on the board first in the middle of the 2nd period in front of the sold out crown. However, the Chill responded with a goal late in the period from Griff Jeszka.  With just 1:35 to go, Mac Jansen scored the game-winner for the Chill. Boxscore

Corpus Christi IceRays 3 @ Kenai River Brown Bears 4 (OT) – It was a dramatic night in Soldotna as the Brown Bears continued their hot streak with a come-from-behind 4-3 win in overtime over the IceRays. After a scoreless 1st period, the IceRays took a 2-0 lead in the 2nd period with goals from Martin Hojbjerg and Tony Roisum. Brad LeLievre and Nathan Colwell tied the game for the Brown Bears midway through the 3rd period. A goal from Maurin Mouvet put the IceRays ahead with less than two minutes to go, but an extra attacker goal from Jake Bushey would tie the game at 3-3.  In the overtime, a shot from the point deflected off of Vincent Stefan in front for the game-winner.

Johnstown Tomahawks 4 @ Michigan Warriors 3 (SO) – The Tomahawks earned a weekend split with the Warriors thanks to a 4-3 shootout win on Saturday. After Michigan led 1-0 on the 1st period goal from Zack Szajner, Matthew Meier and Alex Jaeckle scored in the 2nd period to give Johnstown a 2-1 lead. Michigan got two goals in the 3rd period from Jon Farkas and Connor Lyons to answer a Johnstown goal from Ryan McNeely to send the game to a shootout. Omar Mullan, Shane Bednard and Zach Wallace scored on consecutive shots to give the Tomahawks the win. Boxscore

Topeka RoadRunners 3 @ Amarillo Bulls 4 – The Amarillo Bulls won their sixth game in the row with a 4-3 win over Topeka on Saturday, which completed a weekend sweep. The teams were tied at 2-2 after two periods as Carter Penzien and Cody Gylling scored for the Bulls and Tyler Poulsen and Sly Sutter scored for Topeka. Tyler Gernhofer gave the Bulls the go-ahead goal just :39 seconds into the 3rd period, which was followed by a power play goal from Matt Sieckhaus. Peter Halash added a late goal for Topeka. Boxscore

Aberdeen Wings 3 @ Minot MInotauros 0 – For the second straight night, it was the Chad Catt show as the Minotauros could not find an answer for the Wings goaltender all weekend long as he posted another shutout in a 30-save, 3-0 win. The Wings scored twice in the 1st period jumping out to a 2-0 lead on goals from Bjorn Sigurdarson and Drew Doyon. Jonathan Grebosky added a third period goal, which was more than enough to secure the win. The Minotauros held a 30-21 shots advantage in the game. Boxscore

Brookings Blizzard 2 @ Austin Bruins 3 (SO) – The Bruins kept the Blizzard winless on the season, posting a come-from-behind 3-2 shootout win in Austin.

The Bruins would respond later in the period with a shorthanded goal from Drew Anderson and a penalty shot tally from Jay Dickman. In the shootout, Brian Bachnak scored the winner as the sixth shooter for Austin. Boxscore

Odessa Jackalopes 1 @ Wichita Falls Wildcats 2 – Ben Kucera provided all the scoring the Wildcats would need to complete a weekend home sweep of the Jackalopes to stay alone in 1st place in the South Division. Kucera tallied even strength goals in the 2nd and 3rd periods to put the Wildcats ahead 2-0.  Matt Beranek added a late 3rd period goal for Odessa, but it would not be enough. Chase Munroe made 18 saves in the win, while Eric Hancock took the loss, making 32 saves. Boxscore

Minnesota Magicians 0 @ Minnesota Wilderness 2 – Kasimir Kaskisuo posted his league-leading 3rd shutout of the season as the Wilderness earned a weekend home-and-home split with the Magicians with a 2-0 win on Saturday in Cloquet. The game was scoreless through the first two periods.  It took 11:56 into the 3rd for the Wilderness to finally score as Dan Litchke finally scored the game’s first goal.  Thomas Lindstrom added the second marker five minutes later. Kaskisuo ended up with 21 saves while Magicians goaltender Atte Tolvanen had 26 saves. Boxscore

Wenatchee Wild 1 @ Port Huron Fighting Falcons 2 – Offense was hard to come by on Saturday in Port Huron, but a pair of goals from Mitch Maloney would be all the Fighting Falcons would need as they took the first of a two game set against the Wild. Maloney scored midway through the 1st period and again midway through the 2nd period.  Sam Becker would answer for the Wild, but Wenatchee managed just 20 shots on goal the entire game. Alex Blankenburg posted the win making 19 saves, while Chase Perry took the loss, making 20 saves. Boxscore
