It was another stinker of a performace by the Weyburn Red Wings who were defeated by their rivals for the second straight by a score of 7–2.

It was more of the same from the previous night as Weyburn got behind early and wasn’t able to battle back in what turned into a feisty contest. A pair of Estevan goals just 6:32 in had them up 2–0.

Weyburn got back to within one thanks to a goal from Jordan Kazymyra. His 15th goal of the season was set up by Dawson McKenzie’s slick feed on a two-on-one. The Bruins added another before the end of the period and led 3–1 through 20 minutes and outshot the Wings 16–2.

It took just eight seconds for the action to get going in the middle frame, as affiliate Keigan Callander dropped the gloves with Kolton Leslie and folded him with a few hard right hooks. It was one of the, if not the bright spot on the night for the Wings.

Estevan kept piling it on and was riding high with a 6–1 lead before Tyler Leibl banged one home for his second as a Red Wing. Estevan had a parade to the penalty box and Weyburn ended up with a full seven minute man advantage, but was unable to establish any sort of resemblance of a powerplay set up.

Eddie Gallagher would add one for more good measure for the Bruins who have now taken six of seven games from the Wings this season. Dating back to the start of last season, Estevan has won 12 of the 15 Highway 39 contests.

Goaltenders Cody Levesque and Ben Laidlaw both saw action this weekend and you can’t help but feel for them. They faced a combined 98 shots in the two games and were hung out to dry on numerous occasions by defensive breakdowns in front of them.

The Jekyll and Hyde Red Wings continue to live on through 33 days of 2019, as last weekend to this weekend was a complete 180 of effort and compete by the squad.

The only good news on the night came from the Horizon Credit Union Centre in Melville, where the Millionaires fell 4–1 to the Kindersley Klippers.

Next up for the red and white is a three-game road trip next weekend, making stops in Kindersley and Humboldt. It’ll be a tough three games in three nights stretch against some quality opponents.

All the action can be heard live on BIG 106, the home of Red Wing Radio.
