PATS 5 TIGERS 1

Keith Hershmiller Photography
Regina, Saskatchewan – The Regina Pats (22-22-3-4) defeated the Medicine Hat Tigers (20-29-3-1) 5-1 at the Brandt Centre before over 4300 fans on Friday Night.  It was a huge victory for the Queen City Kids as it fattened their lead over Medicine Hat to seven points for the final playoff spot.

Game Story
The Regina Pats got on the board early and often in the first as they jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Medicine Hat scored one late on the power play.  The Regina goals came from Sean Richards, Austin Wagner and Lane Zablocki to get things started.  The story in the first, however, was Pats Forward Adam Brooks who notched three assists to bring his season point total to 77.  In doing so, Brooks took over the league lead in scoring.  He currently sits one point up on the Moose Jaw Warriors, and former Pat, Dryden Hunt in the scoring race.

Regina would add one in the second from Sam Steel and an empty netter late in the third from Sergey Zborovskiy.  With the win the Pats move seven points up on Medicine, sweeping the season series 4-0.  Regina Pats Goalie Tyler Brown turned away 41 shots en route to the victory.

Quick Hits
-The Pats are back to .500 on the season.
-Adam Brooks leads the WHL in scoring with 77 points.
-Jared McAmmond played the 99th game of his WHL career.
-Tonight’s attendance 4713

What’s Next?
The Pats are back in action on home-ice tomorrow night at 7 p.m. when they host the Prince George Cougars.  The puck drops at 7 p.m.  The game sponsor is Home Depot who will be giving away toques before the game.  Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.ca, the Brandt Centre Box Office and Safeway locations throughout Regina.

Do you go to the games to count fans? Thanks for your valuable insight.

why would they lie no reason too anyways they count tickets sold not actual people I watched the game on tv capacity is 6200 and they showed the g crowd and it was easily 70 percent full which would equate to what they said

The attendance was 4488; the 4713 number is the attendance of the January 23rd game home game against Prince Albert.

I, in fact DO attend games to count fans. It's my job.

"before over 4300 fans on Friday Night"

In fairness 4713 from the quick hits, while apparently not the correct figure, is "over" 4300. The release also says, "With the win the Pats move seven points up on Medicine".

The word in the laundromat is the ownership is not pleased with 3500-4500 average attendance.
