For the 2nd time in 4 days the Melville Millionaires fell to the Hawks, this time a 5-3 decision at the Cage in Nipawin.

In the 2nd, Nipawin made it 3-0 just 31 seconds in as Zander Stewart was found back-door and sniped it over the left shoulder of the Mils netminder.

But the visitors responded rather quickly as Noah Wills broke his way into the zone and then feathered a nice pass over to Cooper Chisholm and he snapped it home over the left shoulder of Hawks G Jackson Fellner to get the Mils on the board.

Two minutes later they made it a one goal game as Nathan Fox was awarded a penalty shot after being hooked up on a break and he converted for his 5th to make it 3-2 Nipawin through 2 periods. 

Aidan Robson evened things up for Melville just over 3 minutes into the 3rd as his seeing-eye wrister beat a screened Fellner to complete comeback at 3-3. 

But the Hawks took the lead again and never looked back as Alex Johnson finished of a nice passing play and notched his 7th of the season on the PP making it 4-3 before Joel Mabin added the insurance a few minutes later.

Hawks' G Jackson Fellner earned his 2nd straight win against Melville making 24 saves, while Kelton Pyne in the Mils goal stopped 41 shots.

Just before the 1st period buzzer would go off the Wings regained their one goal lead back as Jakob Kalin banged home his 8th of the season past Allen making it a one goal through 20 minutes.

The Millionaires' got off to an early lead as Cooper Chisholm pulled the Mils in front 1-0 with a 1st period goal after a nice feed in front from Nathan Fox, and then Noah Wills scored a highlight-reel goal, almost half way through the 2nd to make it 2-0.

But that's when the Hounds took over as just over a minute later,  Antoine St. Onge pulled the Hounds within one with a PP goal and then just 13 seconds later, Cyprus Smith-Davis jammed his 2nd of the season to pull the home side even. 

Notre Dame added two more before the 2nd period buzzer off the sticks of Sam Kroon and Will Dawsom to make it 4-2 through 2 periods.

In the 3rd, the Mils pulled back within one as Colby Ball's wrister on the powerplay beat a screened Tucker Inabinet for his 2nd of the campaign.

Will Dawson though would ice it into the empty net with just over a minute to go, his 2nd of the night to ice the game.

Tucker Inabinet turned aside 18 of 21 shots to earn the victory, while Melville G Kelton Pyne made 37 saves on 41 shots in the losing cause.

The Millionaires return to action on Saturday night back home against the Nipawin Hawks at 7:00PM, while the Hounds host the Yorkton Terriers on Friday.
