Weyburn Red Wings edge out Klippers, lose to Broncos

The Weyburn Red Wings edged out the Kindersley Klippers 6-5 on Friday at home, and lost to the Humboldt Broncos on Tuesday night 8-6.

WEYBURN – The Richardson Pioneer Weyburn Red Wings edged out the Kindersley Klippers 6-5 on Friday evening at home, and lost in a high-scoring match against the Humboldt Broncos on Tuesday, by the score of 8-6.

Friday evening was also helpful for two community organizations, as the teddy bear toss was held for the Salvation Army, and a jersey auction was held for the Family Place, featuring specially-made jerseys for the occasion.

For this game, volunteer auctioneer Winston Bailey sold off four jerseys, for Wyatt LaCoste, Ryan Hicks, Dallen Oxelgren and Dazza Mitchell. The other jerseys were sold by silent auction, and the proceeds of $14,235 were donated to the Family Place on Tuesday evening.

The teddy bears hit the ice in the first period, after Jacob Visentini scored on the power play at 4:28. He was assisted by Tyler Teasdale and Nicholas Kovacs.

Drew Molde then scored as he went in alone after being fed a pass by Visentini, and Teasdale scored a minute later, assisted by Jaxson Ruthven and Max Monette.

Goaltender Dazza Mitchell kept the Red Wings in the game, including turning aside a penalty shot by Logan Cox late in the first period.

With the score tied at 3-3 after the first period, the Klippers scored one followed by two Red Wings goals. Oxelgren scored unassisted, then Elijah Anderson scored on the power play, assisted by Visentini.

The two teams each scored once in the third period, with Visentini getting his second goal, again on the power play, assisted by Kovacs and Cade Meiklejohn.

Mitchell was in net for the full 60 minutes, and made 35 saves on 40 shots.

On Tuesday night, Visentini and Molde both scored in the first period with the Broncos scoring three times, and Jerome Maharaj scored unassisted in the second period while the Broncos scored four more.

Cade Meiklejohn scored twice in the third period, once unassisted, and Ruthven scored to make the score close, but the Broncos scored an empty netter with 53 seconds left in the game to cinch the win.

Berney Weston was in net for Weyburn for the first period, and was pulled near the half-way mark of the second, and Mitchell was in net for the remainder of the game.

The Red Wings will be in Radville on Friday evening to play the Notre Dame Hounds, and in Estevan to play the Bruins on Saturday night. The Red Wings will then have a bit of a break before they travel to Nipawin on Dec. 6, and then to Flin Flon on Dec. 8 and 9, and Humboldt on Dec. 15.

The last home game before the Christmas break will be on Saturday, Dec. 16, when they host the Yorkton Terriers at Crescent Point Place.
