The RWD Squirt ‘B’ Cheavers earned a split in a three-game weekend, wrapping up a 2-2 tie and a 5-3 win against the host Sparta Spartans then returned to the Coulee Region and dropping a 5-4 decision to the host Onalaska Tornado on Sunday.
Cheavers 2, 5 @ Spartans 2, 3
Something about Sparta agreed with Cheavers’ forward Owen Meyer who played a part in all seven goals scored on Saturday.
After firing both goals, unassisted in the opening contest that also saw a three-minute scoreless overtime period, Meyer notched the hat trick in the second game, setting up Thomas Bowen on the other two.

On Sunday, the Cheavers made the trek to the Omni in Onalaska coming up just short in a one-goal defeat.
Bowen and Meyer formed a nice tandem again, Bowen scoring twice and Meyer once, both earning assists on the other’s goals.
William Fenwick counted the other RWD goal, unassisted.
Isaac Howe handled the work in goal in all three games for the Cheavers.
The weekend results pushed the team’s record to 4-12-2 on the season. They will be back in action this weekend returning to the same area for the tournament in West Salem.
