The Swift Current Innovation Credit Union U18 AAA Wildcats opened the scoring early, but the Prince Albert Bears scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-1 victory at Art Hauser Centre on Saturday.

Caitlyn Perlinger scored for the Wildcats at 2:29 of the opening frame, but Sasha Malenfant equalized about four minutes later to tie it up at 1-1. Julia Cey scored for the Bears on the power play in the second period and Claudia Lammers added an empty-netter late in the third to seal the second victory of the season for Prince Albert.

Karlee Lehner made 33 saves in the loss for the Wildcats (5-3-0-0), who return to action on Wednesday night when they visit the Weyburn Gold Wings. Their next home games are against the Saskatoon Stars on November 5 and 6 at S3 Arenas.
