Broncos Split the Weekend in S'toon

After a 4-2 loss to Moose Jaw Saturday, the Broncos scored four times on the powerplay to defeat Medicine Hat 5-3.

Taylor Vause scored a pair of goals to lead the way while Spencer McAvoy, Jordan Peddle and Derek Claffey added singles. Travis Yonkman went the distance in the Broncos' goal to pick up the win.

The Broncos are now 2-2 in the pre-season with two games left to go. They take on Prince Albert in a home and home set this coming weekend - Friday in Prince Albert, then Saturday at the Credit Union I-plex. Game-time 7:30pm.


Here at the station we are working hard to get everything in place to broadcast Saturday's home game against Prince Albert. This is always a busy week leading up to our first broadcast so the blog updates will be spotty at best.

We do plan to be on the air Saturday night a 7pm for the Broncos pre-game show, 7:30pm play-by-play on the Eagle 94.1 FM.

Today is sure to be busy... interviews with the WHL Commissioner Ron Robison and the new Head Coach of the Spokane Chiefs Hardy Sauter. Sauter, a good Saskatchewan guy was a colorful player in his days. He would be a young coach I'm sure his players would love playing for. He has big shoes to fill in Spokane though with the departure of Bill Peters to the AHL.

Then this afternoon, myself and Tim Tisdale will meet a photographer from the Prairie Post for some shots they will be using in the annual Broncos season preview edition. I haven't seen Tizzy in over a week... last I heard he was playing nine rounds of golf in eight days in Calgary, and technically it was still considered "work".

For me, I think golf season officially came to a close on the weekend. We managed 36 holes in some early morning chilly weather over at the Chinook. That's it, that's all... now Broncos hockey becomes the focus pretty much every day until the Christmas break.

Everyone in Saskatchewan will be happy today following an improbable comeback win against the rival Winnipeg Blue Bombers yesterday. I was watching the game thinking I'm really only familiar with maybe half of the current Riders roster. Who are these guys??

Doesn't matter, they keep winning. And Rider Nation is ok with that, no matter who is catching the ball deep inside Bombers territory.
