Broncos Rally Back

It didn't look good in the first period, or for that matter in the 2nd when the Raiders Igor Revenko made it 4-1 eight minutes in.

But the Broncos flipped the switch thanks to special teams as Adam Lowry scored on the powerplay to cut it to 4-2 and Justin Dowling scored a pretty short-handed marker two minutes later to make it 4-3 after two.

The Broncos dominated the 3rd, virtually cutting the ice in half while scoring three more times on markers from Michael Stickland, Brad Hoban and Taylor Vause.

The Raiders struggled to generate offense short for a Jordan Hickmott break-away in which Morgan Clark made a stellar pad save on.

The Broncos would outshoot P.A. 30-6 over the last two periods and skate to a much needed 6-4 win.

Rookie 16 year-old Adam Lowry scored his first and second career WHL goals in the win.

The Broncos host Red Deer tonight. Both the teams are playing their third game in as many nights. The Rebels also play their fourth game in five nights.

Face-off at 7pm.


I see Gregg Drinnan picked up on a line from our pre-game show in Regina Friday night in which Pats Head Coach Curtis Hunt talked about a water bottle tossing incident in Prince Albert Wednesday.

Just to clarify, by no means was Curtis being malicious in his words of "I didn't quite have the accuracy that Chinner did in Swift Current". He said it tongue and cheek and knew he was talking to an audience (in Swift Current) that could relate to the incident.

It had the coaches office in Regina sharing a good chuckle...
