Wyatt Haustein scored with 34.2 seconds left to give the Stettler Lightning a 5-4 win over the Three Hills Lightning in Stettler’s home-opener in the Heritage Junior Hockey League last Friday night at the Stettler Recreation Centre.

Haustein was playing on a line with twins Scott and Adam Ternes, both of whom assisted on the power-play winner.

Jacob Schwarzenberger scored two goals for the Lightning, which also got goals from Scott Ternes and Kyler O’Connor.

Simon Thieleman made 27 saves in his season-debut for the Lightning, who improved their record to 2-0.
