The Swift Current Innovation Federal Credit Union Wildcats remain winless on the SFU18AAAHL season after a 2-1 loss to the Battlefords Sharks at S3 Arenas on Sunday afternoon.

After a scoreless first period, Evangeline Hill opened the scoring for the Wildcats at the 3:06 mark of the middle frame before Anneka Aspaas tied the game on the power play with 11:30 left in the second. Grier Slabaida broke the deadlock with 5:59 left in the third, and the goal would hold up as the winner as the Sharks took both ends of the weekend set. Jordyn Ottenbreit made 26 saves as Swift Current outshot the Battlefords 33-28.

The Wildcats (0-3-0-0) will host the Notre Dame Hounds in their next game on October 15.
