Blues roll over Neepawa 8-1

Let’s just say the Blues are on a hot streak (knock on wood). They’ve now won their last four straight and are working toward solidifying their playoff spot.

Tonight, the last place Neepawa Natives were in the city. The Blues were strong from top to bottom.

Rookie Mikol Sartor kicked off the scoring in the first with an unassisted goal, and Codey Behun followed it up with another goal to put the Blues up 2-0 after the first.

The Blues kept the peddle to the metal throughout the second. Jayson Szun, Riley Cusack, and Sulivan Shortreed each added the score, extending the lead to 5-0.

It was more of the same in the third with Tony Apetagon, Nathan Adrian and Ethan Unruh all finding the back of the net.

Neepawa did add one goal on their side, scored by former Winnipeg Blue, Cam Olstad.

With a lot of momentum under their belts, the Blues will take their hot streak to Winkler on Saturday, Feb. 16 to take on the Flyers, who are on the cusp of a playoff spot. Puck drop for that game is at 7:30 p.m.
