The Yettis finished the game scoring three more times, with a final score of 18-7.

A season-long goal for the Yettis is to play their game from the start, and to stay out of the penalty box. During the May 22 game the Yettis had a total of 13 minutes in the penalty box.

The Yettis were penalized early in the game for having too many men on the court.

Rival Renegades spent 31 minutes in the penalty box for various offenses such as slashing, holding and roughing.

With this win the Yettis are poised in second place, just behind the first place Renegades.

The Yettis are on the road for their next game before returning home on June 1 for the first of four straight home games.

The Calgary Wranglers will take on the Yettis at the NexSource Centre on June 1, with the ball dropping at 1 p.m.
