RAIDERS 6 PATS 5 SO
On a night filled with highly intense moments and plenty of lead changes, the Raiders found a way to prevail in front of a ruckus weekday crowd at the Art Hauser Centre. With the game in overtime, Ian Scott brought the 2500 fans to their feet with one of the best saves of the year, stretching across the crease to deny Sam Steel. As the game reached a shootout, Jordan Tkatch netted the Raiders a win with a goal in the fourth round.
Tkatch lead all Raiders with two goals and one assist for three points in the game. Luke Coleman (1g-1a), Parker Kelly (1g-1a), and Sean Montgomery (2a) each had a pair of points, while the team also got goals from Vojtech Budik and Jesse Lees.
Adam Brooks (3a) and Austin Wagner (1g-2a) had big nights for the Pats with three points, while Adam Berg (1g-1a) had two points. Regina’s other goals came off the sticks of Luc Smith, Colby Williams, and Sergey Zborovskiy.
Recording his fourth straight win, Scott stopped 26 of 31 shots on goal, while Tyler Brown turned away 32 of 37 attempts.
The Raiders outshot the Pats 38-31. Prince Albert went 1-for-4 on the power play, while Regina was 0-for-2.
The Raiders improve to 22-11-3-1 on the year by recording at least a point in their fourth consecutive game. The Pats drop to 16-16-3-3 on the season.
