Jeff Skaley manned the Stettler net for both weekend games as the Lightning closed out their pre-Christmas schedule in the Heritage Junior Hockey League with a 4-3 overtime loss to the Mountainview Colts at Didsbury on Saturday, one night after the Lightning dumped the Three Hills Thrashers 10-1 at the Stettler Recreation Centre.

The Lightning’s latest winning streak ended at five victories, but they remain in first place in the Northern Division with a 17-7-1 record, three points ahead of the Blackfalds Wranglers going into Sunday’s action. Stettler has the same number of points as the Southern-Division-leading Okotoks Bisons (17-6-1), who have played one less game.

Lightning captain Landon Potter scored two goals against Mountainview, while Scott Ternes had a power-play goal and Dylan Houston added two assists.

In Friday’s romp, Wyat Haustein and Kyler O’Connor each netted two goals and the Kid Line combined for 10 points as Adam Ternes had a goal and three assists, while Houston and Scott Ternes each contributed a goal and two assists. Ryan Graff, Connor Doucette and Derek Muhlbach also scored for Stettler, and Skaley made 25 saves. Skaley blocked 27 shots in Saturday’s game.

The Lightning resume action on Jan. 5 when they visit the Banff Academy Bears.
