REGINA – The Regina Pats won a second straight game, 3-2 over the Brandon Wheat Kings on Friday night at the Brandt Centre.

The Pats opened the scoring 12 minutes into the first, Garrett Wright put home a rebound for his second of the year and it was 1-0 after one.

In the second, Austin Pratt scored his team leading 14th from the right circle to double the Pats lead to 2-0. Brandon got one back later in the period and Regina led 2-1 after 40 minutes.

The third period saw Regina go back ahead by two when Logan Nijhoff scored on a breakaway for his second and it was 3-1 with eight minutes left. Brandon’s Luka Burzan cut the lead in half with just under three minutes left but the Pats held on for the 3-2 victory.

Was nice to see the boys come out and play well after the break. They fore-checked like crazy for both games which set Wheaties back on their butts unexpectedly.
Winning breeds winning and helps the confidence a lot.
Young players like Wright and Massier looking better each time out...lots of speed and enthusiasm.
Kinda hope Pratt does not get traded as a good player and showing some leadership...same for Mahovolich.
