The Red Wings won 4-3 in overtime over the Battlefords North Stars during a home game at Crescent Point Place

WEYBURN - The Richardson Pioneer Weyburn Red Wings won two home games over the weekend, and then lost 3-2 to La Ronge on Monday.

“It was a battle, we were ready to compete. Battleford was a good team, but we just outworked them and we got the result that we deserve,” said defenseman Nick Dobson. “We are really excited to keep going and keep winning.”

Left winger Kurt Mullen scored his very first goal with the Weyburn Red Wings during the game against Battleford on Saturday night.

“(Davis) Chorney fed up (Ian) Maier in the slot, and I found the puck in the back door and put it in.”

“It was great to get in the line up, and see how this team plays,” added Mullen, as the Saturday night game was also his first official time on the ice with the Red Wings.

“I have been feeling pretty good about this season so far. I haven’t won a game in regulation yet, but we are getting those wins,” said goaltender Jackson Fellner. “The win against Battleford felt really good. We came into the weekend wanting four points, and that is what we got.”

La Ronge was first to score during the game held Monday night at Crescent Point Place, scoring during a powerplay in the first period.
