New MJHL Rankings see Neepawa drop one spot


Here are the new MJHL team rankings for Tuesday Oct. 7: The top three clubs from last week, Portage, Winnipeg and Winkler remain status quo. However, there is some movement further down the list after the Old Dutch/MJHL Showcase in Winnipeg.

1) Portage Terriers(Last Week: 1) – The impressive start to the season now has people asking the question; just how many games will Portage lose this year? Through seven games the Terriers are averaging 6.3 goals per game.

2) Winnipeg Blues(Last Week: 2) – In the shadow of the Portage Terriers the Winnipeg Blues are quietly going about their business and have yet to lose in regulation this season.

3) Winkler Flyers (Last week 3) - Winkler was one of three teams to sweep their schedules this past weekend at the MJHL Showcase. A good looking 4-2 come from behind win against OCN and a 4-0 shutout over Wayway. 

4) Dauphin Kings (Last Week: 6)– A strong week for the Kings who picked up five of a possible six points. The only slip up came at home in a 2-1 overtime loss to the OCN Blizzard

5) Steinbach Pistons (Last Week: 4) – Steinbach was the latest team to feel the wrath of the Portage Terriers, dropping a 7-1 decision to them Saturday. Before that they picked up a big 4-3 shootout victory against Winnipeg.

6) OCN Blizzard (Last Week: 7) – The OCN Blizzard could have easily gone 3-0 this week, but a loss to Winkler at the Showcase had them snagging four of a possible six points over the last seven days.

7) Virden Oil Capitals (Last Week: 11) A blip on the radar with a 4-2 loss to OCN on Saturday but two solid wins against Winnipeg and Selkirk this weekend have the Oil Capitals seeming to get back on track.

8) Selkirk Steelers (Last Week: 5)– Selkirk’s weekend was mixed, a close game against Dauphin that could have gone either way on Friday, a strong victory against Neepawa on Saturday and then a slip up Sunday against Virden. 

9) Neepawa Natives (Last Week: 8)– A split for the Neepawa Natives at the MJHL’s Showcase, but a concerning 11-4 loss to the Selkirk Steelers Saturday night. 

10) Swan Valley Stampeders (Last Week: 9)– Not the best week for the Swan Valley Stampeders. The lone bright spot came in a 7-6 OT win against Virden early in the week.

11) Waywayseecappo Wolverines (Last Week: 10) – The longest current losing streak in the MJHL belongs to the Wolverines, they’ve dropped their last five.
