Brandon Dong’s third goal of the day, midway through the third period, proved to be an important insurance goal as the Bantam division-leading Jungletraders held off KHMB, 5-4, on Saturday.

Max Hunter’s third score, an end-to-end breakaway, cut the lead to one, with 1:35 left in regulation. Brennan Higaki donned the goaltender’s gear for Jungletraders and stopped 16 shots, including several point-blank glove saves down the stretch. Tommy Kahle made a day-high 25 saves in net in defeat.
