The Ogden Mustangs swept the weekend and season series against the Cheyenne Stampede last weekend with 10-2, 9-0 and 9-1 victories.
In total, the Mustangs outscored the Stampede 85-11 in nine games played this season. The Mustangs’ 33-game winning streak against the Stampede is the longest winning streak in the Western States Hockey League for any team against a single opponent.
Sunday’s win gave the Mustangs 44 on the season, passing the single-season franchise record that was set two seasons ago. If the Mustangs can win out on the road this weekend, they’ll end the season with a record of 47-2-2, the second-best regular season record in WSHL history, only behind the El Paso Rhinos’ 49-1-1 mark set last season.
Individually, two Mustang players set records of their own last weekend.
