When the 2024 PGLL season started in late April, it was already a historic moment for the Rent Pro Completely Branded Weyburn Razorbacks. The newest team in the league, they were bringing junior lacrosse to Weyburn, and they were looking to make a statement.  

After a rough opening weekend against the defending champion Prince Albert Predators, the Razorbacks would have three close games at home against two talented teams – the Regina Barracudas and the Swift Current Wolverines. The players on the Razorbacks knew they were about to turn the corner, though, and pick up their first win in franchise history.  

Saturday afternoon, the Razorbacks would get that milestone as they beat the Mustangs in Moose Jaw 9-7. 

The Razorbacks opened up the scoring just 17 seconds into the game, when Marshal Yuzicappi scored, with Ryder Hignett and Blake Becker getting the assists. Then, Sam Borschowa would make it 2-0 Weyburn just under two minutes later, assisted by Hunter Willoughby. Borschowa added a power play goal with just over six minutes gone in the first period to make it 3-0 before the first period was half over.  

Moose Jaw would reply with 7:38 remaining as Kael Nichols got the ball past Matthew Charlton, but then in the dying seconds of the period, Aiden Guest would score to make it 4-1.  

In the second period, the Mustangs came roaring back, scoring three goals quickly to tie the game up as Nichols tallied two more times, and Braxton Mac Angus also scored.  

Then, the top scorer so far this season for the Razorbacks, Ryder Hignett, would take over. He scored with 8:55 left to give Weyburn the lead. Then Mac Angus scored in reply to even the game up, but then Hignett answered back 30 seconds later.  

Mac Angus would then score again to tie the game up 6-6 with 6:07 left in the second period. Sam Borschowa, though, would break the tie with a power play goal with 2:21 remaining, assisted by Trent Benning. Then Hignett scored his third of the game to make it 8-6 Weyburn.  

In the third period, Hunter Willoughby would score to make it 9-6, before Nichols added his fourth of the game to make it 9-7.  

The Razorbacks will now have the rest of the week to prepare for the Regina Barracudas, who will be in Weyburn at Tom Zandee Sports Arena on Friday night.
