ESTEVAN - For the second time in 48 hours, the Estevan Bruins have defeated their Highway 39 rivals. 

Evan Forrest scored the winning goal with 1:57 to play in the third period in the Bruins' 4-2 victory over the Weyburn Red Wings Sunday at Affinity Place.

Estevan opened the scoring with 2:41 to play in the first period on a goal by Tyler Guy.

Each team scored once in the second, with Jackson Hassman tallying for Weyburn at the 1:58 mark of the frame, and Logan Ziegler replying for the Bruins midway through the period.

Ty Mason - a Weyburn hockey product and the son of former Estevan Bruin Willy Mason - tied the game 64 seconds into the third period. It remained a 2-2 contest until Forrest's goal. He took the puck out from along the boards, skated into the middle of the ice and fired a puck past Red Wings' goaltender Boston Gelowitz. 

Weyburn pressed late, and Bruins' goaltender Cam Hrdlicka had to make a sprawling save with 30 seconds to play. Then Bruin forward Cody Davis scored into an empty net with two seconds remaining.

Hrdlicka had 29 saves for the Bruins in the victory. Gelowitz made 37 saves in Weyburn's net in the loss. 

Estevan also defeated Weyburn 3-2 Friday night at Affinity Place. 

The Bruins (3-6) will be back on the ice Oct. 4 when they visit the Notre Dame Hounds at 8 p.m. The next game for the Red Wings (3-5) is Oct. 6 when they host the Nipawin Hawks at 7 p.m.
