The RWD Squirt B Cheavers continue its search for its first win of the season, enduring a couple tough decisions this past weekend.
After a season opening tie against the Sauk Prairie Flyers ‘B’ Squirts at Reedsburg Area Community Arena (RACA), the locals have dropped its next five contests, including this past weekend as the visiting Waunakee ‘C2’ Yellow Wildcats squad collected a 6-1 at RACA Saturday and the Cheavers fell 10-1 at Viroqua on Sunday.
Wildcats 6 @ Cheavers 1
The Wildcats fired the lone goal of the opening period and added another before Cole Renneberg fired the lone Cheavers goal with 3:12 to play in the middle period. Two goals in the final 90 seconds of the period widened the gap to 4-1 for Waunakee and the Wildcats added another pair in the third.
Jamison Haag kicked out 22 shots in goal for the Squirt Cheavers.
Cheavers 1 @ Thunder 10
On Sunday, the host Thunder settled things quick with a half-dozen unanswered first period goals but the Cheavers held them off the board through the middle frame before the Thunder added another four in the third.
