What do you call a team that won 4 straight to close out November? We call them the Calgary Mustangs!
Beginning on Saturday, October 21, in a game against the Bonnyville Pontiacs, the Mustangs began their epic run that has still yet to find a conclusion. Beating the Pontiacs 3-2 in a shootout was the launch the team needed. The team then beat the Lloydminster Bobcats and the Olds Grizzlys twice to close out the month.
The Mustangs are now 9 – 9 – 1 for the season and are sitting 5th in the Viterra AJHL South Division. What is important to note about this team is that last year in the 2016-2017 season the team only had 8 regulation wins. This is a new year, and very clearly a new team.
The Mustangs organization is very proud of what these boys have accomplished, and we cant wait to see how far they can go! Thank you to all of our fans that have come out this season to support the Stangs as they continue their pursuit for excellence.
The Mustangs have outscored their opponents 20-8 during the 4 game win streak, outshooting their opponents 188 – 142 and Mustangs players tallying a total of 48 points.
