The Yellow Grass Wheat Kings jumped past the idle Carlyle Cougars last night to move back into first place in the Big Six Hockey League. The Wheat Kings handed the visit Bienfait Coalers a 4-2 loss. With the win, Yellow Grass is in first place with a record of 5-1.

The Wheat Kings got on the board in the first period, when Shelby Gray scored what would be the first of two goals in the game at the 7:21 mark. The goal was assisted by Devin Cobbold. The lead wouldn't survive the period, though, as Ryan Curzon would reply for the Coalers with 1:46 left on the clock. His goal was assisted by Keegan Malaryk and Matt Bourassa.

In the second period, two goals in quick succession would restore the lead for the Wheat Kings, and expand on it. Captain Justin Richter would find the twine behind Bienfait goalie Jackson Walliser with 6:57 on the clock. His goal was assisted by Brendan Vertefeuille and Brandt Hudson. Then just 1:11 later, Cobbold would score a goal of his own to make it a 3-1 game. Mike Onstad assisted on the tally. It would become a three-goal lead by the end of the middle frame when Gray scored his second of the night, assisted by Reid Paterson.

The Coalers pressured in the third, looking to swing the momentum. They could only muster one goal, though, as Blaine Herzberg scored on Tanner Erickson. His goal was assisted by Carson Benning and Stephane Peloquin.

The Wheat Kings are now off until December 15th, when they will host the Kipling/Windthorst Oil Kings in a battle of Big Six royalty. For the Coalers, they are back on the ice Saturday. They visit the Wawota Flyers.
