OK, so the Ogden Mustangs weren't expecting to go undefeated in their third Western States Hockey League season, but they certainly got off to a red-hot start.
After suffering their first loss of the young WSHL season on Friday at Peoria, Ariz., Ogden bounced back with 6 goals in the next two games to win their series with the Arizona Redhawks 2-1.
Ogden is now 9-1 on the season, just points ahead of the Idaho Junior Steelheads in the WSHL Northwest Division standings.
Ogden suffered an 8-6 loss to the host Redhawks on Friday night.
Instead of losing focus, the Mustangs came out Saturday night with a vengeance.
After giving up an open goal, Ogden got the equalizer from Jon Mencer, leading 3-2 at the first break.
The Mustangs took over in the second frame with five straight goals, adding two more in the third period for the 10-3 victory. David Clements earned the hat trikc.
Early Sunday, the Mustangs got an early goal from Mencer again en route to the 6-2 victory.
With the score knoted at 2-2 early in the third period, Dusty Watt scored twice and assisted on Cam Russell's score to win the series finale going away.
Carson Duggar and Sean Haltam also had goals in Sunday's victory.
Watt leads the team with 15 goals and 25 points; Schuyler Seyfert has six goals and 19 points. Tyler Fallica (5-0) and Niall Quinn (3-0) share the majority of the goaltending duties.
Coach Jake Laime's squad won't have a home game until Nov. 16, but Mustangs fans can follow their team on Friday, when Ogden plays the Salt Lake City Moose at 7 p.m. at the Acord Ice Arena.
Ogden then travels to Boise, Idaho, as the Mustangs face their first showdown with the Idaho Junior Steelheads, who are 8-0 this season.
Game time is 3 p.m.
