It was an action-packed day for lacrosse in Weyburn on Saturday, with nearly every team in the city having at least one game.  

The day started with the U17 Panther Drilling Thrashers taking to the floor, hosting the QCMBL Chill out of Regina for a 9:00 a.m. start.  

The Thrashers would get a good start to the day, as they would finish off the game with two goals in the third period en route to a 5-4 win over the Chill. Max Vennard and Brody Morrice scored twice each for the Thrashers, with Callie Dammann also finding the back of the net.  

The next game of the day had the U11 Weyburn Credit Union Thrashers up against the Moose Jaw Red Mustangs. Weyburn would let Moose Jaw get the first goal of the game before they put up three of their own – on a period – en route to a 3-1 win. 

The U11 Thrashers had goals from Jett Fox, Owen Eberle and Henry Riviere in the victory.  

The U15 Young Fellows Thrashers, ranked as the best defensive team in their league heading into the weekend, were looking to stymie the Swift Current Rampage in the next game of the day. The Rampage would come out and take a 4-2 lead after the first two periods, but Weyburn would rally back in the third to tie the game up 5-5.  

Hudson Maloney had three goals for Weyburn in the win, with Shiloh Mickler scoring two more himself. Quinton Stinson continued his strong performance in goal this season, turning aside 36 shots.  

The Panther Drilling Thrashers would then play the second game of their doubleheader with the Chill. The U17 squad scored four in the first, and four more in the third as they came away with a 9-8 victory. Alex Labrecque had four goals, and Brody Morrice had two. Also scoring for the Thrashers were James Ashworth, Mx Vennard and Branson Law.  

The next game on the busy schedule had the U13 Weyburn Security Thrashers against the Swift Current Rampage. Weyburn would score four goals in the third in a late rally, but it wouldn’t be enough as Swift Current held on for a 7-6 win.  

Julie Labrecque had two goals for Weyburn, as did Simon Wawro. Ryder Stepp and Felix Wawro also scored for Weyburn in the loss.  

The U15 Completely Branded Thrashers then played Swift Current, as they stayed in town to take on both of the Weyburn squads in one trip. The Rampage would score a late goal to get past the Thrashers 4-3. 

Chayse Willoughby had two goals for Weyburn in the loss, with Steele Ozmun scoring the other goal.  

The second game of the doubleheader between the Moose Jaw Red Mustangs and the U11 Weyburn Credit Union Thrashers was next on the docket.  

Weyburn would again be the ones to come out on top, as Owen Eberle scored twice, and Jett Fox and Bennett Baumgartner added a goal each as the Thrashers picked up the 4-2 victory.  

The U13 Young’s Equipment Thrashers then took to the floor to play the Swift Current Rampage. While Swift Current was hoping to come out of Weyburn with two wins, the Thrashers had other ideas. Weyburn held on for a 4-3 victory.  

Cohen Baumgartner had a pair of goals, with Judd Vennard and Bentley Wilson also finding the back of the net in the game.  

The final game of the day had the two U15 teams from Weyburn playing each other. The Young Fellows Thrashers would score five goals in the first period, and held on for an 8-5 victory over the Completely Branded Thrashers. 

The Young Fellows Thrashers had four goals from Korven Pouteaux, with Hudson Maloney scoring twice, and Shiloh Mickler and Nathan Rosengren also tallying. The Completely Branded Thrashers got two goals each from Maddox Mohan and Leo Missal, with Chayse Willoughby also scoring.  

After the weekend, players from Weyburn also find themselves dominating many of the leagues in terms of statistics.  

In the U15 South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League, the three top scorers are all from Weyburn. Hudson Maloney leads the way with 23 goals – more than double the next player in the goals race – and has five more assists for a total of 28 points. Then, Maddox Mohan is second with 16 points on the season, and Leo Missal is third with 13 points, including 10 goals.  

Weyburn’s Brody Morrice is third in goals scored in the U17 league with 10, followed by Max Vennard in 4th with nine. In the U13 league, Julie Labrecque is the top point-getter so far this season with 25. Her 18 goals are the second-most by any one player in the league as well. The third most points in the U13 group is Cohen Baumgartner with the U13 Young’s Equipment Thrashers.
