Bruins drop both games against Weyburn after the Christmas break

Bruins get one point for an overtime loss on Friday.
The Estevan Bruins faced the Weyburn Red Wings on Friday night in Estevan.

The Estevan Bruins returned to the ice following the Christmas break and lost two straight games to the Weyburn Red Wings.

The first game was a 4-3 overtime loss Friday night at Affinity Place. After a scoreless first period, goals by Kade Runke and Garett Zasitko in the second gave the Bruins a 2-0 lead.

Ty Mason – a former member of the Estevan Steelhaus U18 AAA Bears and the son of former Bruin Willy Mason – scored for Weyburn before the period was out.

Owen Barrow’s goal midway through the third period restored the Bruins’ two-goal lead, but Weyburn scored twice late in the third to tie the game, with goals coming from Jackson Hassman and Jakob Kalin.

Jordan Edwards had the overtime winner for Weyburn.

The game marked First Responders’ Night in Estevan, as members of the Estevan Police Service, Estevan RCMP, Estevan Fire Rescue Service, the Estevan Emergency Medical Services and the Weyburn Police Service performed the ceremonial opening faceoff.

The Wings carried over the momentum to Saturday night’s game, as they scored three times in the first and twice early in the second in a 6-1 victory.

Ryley Morgan, Ian Maier and Mason scored in the first period for Weyburn, and Elijah Anderson and Lucas Jeffreys tallied in the second.

Barrow’s goal midway through the middle frame was the Bruins’ lone marker.

Mason scored into an empty net for the only goal of the third.

Cam Hrdlicka was in goal for Estevan in Friday’s game, and Jackson Miller was the Bruins’ goalie on Saturday. Dazza Mitchell was the Weyburn goalie.

The Bruins pulled Miller on numerous occasions during Saturday’s game. They scored their lone goal with Miller out of the net, and created other scoring chances with the extra skater on the ice.

The Wings’ next action will be Tuesday night when they visit the Notre Dame Hounds. The Bruins, meanwhile, will host the Yorkton Terriers Wednesday at Affinity Place at 7 p.m.
