The Weyburn Red Wings dropped their second game in a row Tuesday night, as they fell 6-2 to the visiting Notre Dame Hounds. Despite the loss, the Wings stay four points back of the Estevan Bruins for first in the Viterra Division. They remain four points back of Notre Dame for sixth place overall in the league standings.
The Wings were on the board first in the game, when Cole Woodliffe score unassisted 1:04 into the first. It was the eighth goal of the season for the third year Red Wings.
Neither team was able to score for the remainder of the period, despite a number of quality chances at both ends. Jack Ryan for the Hounds and Liam McCloskey for the Red Wings made a number of highlight reel saves in the frame.
In the second, the Hounds would get on the board as Chaz Smedsrud scored just before the 12-minute mark. With 5:26 left on the clock in the middle frame, the Hounds took the lead, when Connor Mylymok beat McCloskey.
Weyburn would knot things up again at the 7:24 mark of the third period, when Ben Hiltz scored his 23rd of the season, assisted by Woodliffe. From there, it would be the Hounds taking over, in particular, Marshall Wilton. He notched a hat trick, including an empty-netter, in just over five minutes, sealing the win for the Hounds. Smedsrud also scored for the Hounds in the third.
