The South Central Squirt B Cyclones youth hockey team wrapped up a busy weekend with a pair of lopsided victories in Viroqua on Saturday, and a tough loss at home in Reedsburg on Sunday afternoon.
Following wins of 8-1 and 7-0 on the road, the Cyclones fell 5-3 at the Reedsburg rink.
In the first game, the Cyclones opened up a 1-0 lead and by the time they rolled into the third period, they had a 6-1 cushion.
Wyatt Jost led the charge, scoring three goals in the win, while Josiah Fanning and Carter Gross both picked up two goals and an assist. Ayman Boutajirit sank the other goal and also had an assist. Other assists came from Elizabeth Haag and Aiden Knull.
Brayden Goyett-Fuller turned aside eight of nine Viroqua chances to pick up the win in goal.
In the second game, Goyett-Fuller went from nearly flawless to completely flawless, handing all of the shots he faced for a shutout in goal.
The Cyclones again used a big second period, turning a 2-0 lead into a 6-0 cushion and wrapping it up with one more down the stretch.
The Cyclones featured seven different goal scorers in this one. Boutajirit and Jost both had a goal and an assist. Other goals came from Fanning, Haag, Wyatt Arnold, Gross and Briana Sullivan.
Back on home ice on Sunday, the Cyclones ran into a tough Tomah squad that opened up a 2-0 first period lead and extended it to 4-1 in the second. Jacob Balfanz notched the lone Cyclones’ goal to that point.
Tomah added another early in the third before the Cyclones rallied back late, Boutajirit scoring an unassisted goal with 5:20 to go and Sullivan getting the home team within a pair a couple of minutes later off an assists from Boutajirit.
Goyett-Fuller was kept busy in goal and turned aside 22 Tomah chances.
