It was a tough go for the Weyburn Red Wings in game three of their road swing as they were knocked off 6–2 by the Humboldt Broncos.

With a short bench and a few players banged up, the boys looked simply to be out of gas by the end of the night and couldn't muster up much of a comeback after a Broncos onslaught in the second period. 

Humboldt led 2–1 after 20 minutes with Jordan Kazymyra potting the lone Weyburn goal in the first period. 

Just 5:27 into the middle frame Bryson Cecconi scored one of the stranger goals in hockey and was eerily reminiscent of a Kindersley goal earlier in the road trip. He threw the puck behind the net on a dump in, it ricocheted off the stanchion behind the net, came over the net and off Ben Laidlaw's stick and bounced into the net. Just pure dumb luck had the Broncos up 3–1.

Shorty after that Jacob Piller was called for a check to the head and given a five-minute major and a game misconduct. The Broncos would capitalize twice on the extended powerplay and wouldn;t look back the rest of the way. The strange 60-second sequence truly was a momentum changer in the game.

Ben Hiltz sniped his 19th of the year late in the second period to trim the lead to 5–2, but the Broncos added another for good measure in the third. 

The Red Wings finish up the road trip with a record of 0–2–1, but combined with a pointless weeked for Melville, they move to within two points of the 10th spot in the SJHL playoff picture. 

Weyburn made the long trek home and now begins preparing for a big week ahead. Flin Flon visits on Wednesday, before the Notre Dame Hounds stop in on Friday and then the Wings travel to Estevan on Saturday.
