The Blackfalds Bulldogs have won four straight games.

On Tuesday night they continued their streak through the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) defeating the Bonnyville Pontiacs 4-3.

In front of 450 fans at the Eagle Builders Centre in Blackfalds, the Bulldogs came out with a tight victory.

Brendan Ross, David Brandes, Alexander Dimitriadis, and Dakota MacIntosh all finished with two points each for the Bulldogs.

After Jayden Joly scored in the opening frame, Blackfalds took a 2-0 lead early in the second period when David Brandes scored less than a minute in.

The Pontiacs got on the board three minutes later off the stick of James Schneid but the Bulldogs extended their lead midway through the frame notched by Alexander Dimitriadis.

In the third period, the Pontiacs made a push scoring early to cut into the deficit 3-2 but two minutes later, Dakota MacIntosh reinstated their two-goal lead.

The Pontiacs scored once more late in the third by Max Seguin but were unable to find the equalizer.

Bulldogs goaltender Wilson Maxfield finished with 27 saves on 30 shots and for the Pontiacs, Nathan St-Germain 28 saves on 32 shots.

The Bulldogs winning streak began back on Sept. 23 with a 4-2 win over Okotoks followed by a pair of victories at the AJHL Showcase in Calgary over Bonnyville and Canmore.

Blackfalds will look to continue their success on the road in Whitecourt on Thursday, Oct. 5, and in Grande Prairie on Friday, Oct. 6 before returning home next week.
