The Weyburn Red Wings evened the season series with the Kindersley Klippers Friday night. On the strength of 32 saves by Arik Weersink, the Red Wings picked up a 3-1 victory at Crescent Point Place. The win pulls the Red Wings within four points of the Estevan Bruins for first in the Viterra Division, with two games in hand.

The Red Wings got on the board first, when Landon Walters netted his fourth of the season, and second in as many games, on the power play. Cole Woodliffe and Dexter Robinson were credited with assists on the goal.

The Wings would extend the lead early in the second, when Cade Kowalski notched his eighth of the year on the power play, with Ty Brown and Ben Hiltz credited with the assists on the goal.

Before the period was out, though, the Klippers would get on the board. With less than three minutes in the second, Brendon Borbely fired the puck from the point. It redirected off the stick of Cameron Shorrock, then off the stick of Will Van Der Sloot, beating Weersink who was beaten with the double deflection.

Neither team was able to score in the third despite the best efforts from both teams. The Klippers had more chances, though, with Weersink meeting the challenge every time.

With 16 seconds on the clock, Jeremy Velazquez broke a goal-scoring slump that dated back to November 29th, with a shot on the empty net to seal the win.

There was a scary moment in the game when late in the second period, Red Wings forward Cole Woodliffe collided with Klippers defenseman Josh Patrician. Their knees connected, and Patrician was unable to get off the ice on his own power after lying prone on the ice for around 30 seconds. There was no word on his condition.

The Red Wings now prepare for the Yorkton Terriers, who are in town Saturday night. The puck drops on the game at Crescent Point Place at 7:30 p.m.
