The Yellowstone Quake survived two close calls to sweep the visiting Butte Cobras over the weekend, 6-5, and 7-6, at Riley Arena.
 
The victories moved the Quake to 5-12-1 on the season in North American Tier III junior hockey. Butte, 1-17, is in last place in the Frontier Division.
 
Dylan Rumpke scored a hat trick in the opening game as Yellowstone built a 6-3 lead before allowing Butte to threaten.
 
The reverse was the case in the second game, the Quake piling up four goals in the third period to overtake Butte after falling behind 3-0 in the first period.
 
Rumpke scored two more goals late during that rally.
