The Richardson Pioneer Weyburn Red Wings had a home-and-home series this weekend with their Highway 39 rivals, the Estevan Bruins.
The Red Wings had home-ice advantage first on Friday night.
The Bruins started the game off by scoring just over three minutes into the first period.
Thanks to help from Liam Rutten and Nick Dobson, Dace Prymak was able to tie up the game before the end of the period though.
Just over five minutes into the second period, Jake Misskey pulled the Wings ahead. Jordan Gagnon and Connor Stephenson had the assists.
The Bruins later answered back and made the score 2-2, but with just seconds left in the period, Shayde Peterson gave the lead back to the Wings. Rhett Frey and Sebastian Eger were credited with the assists.
The Wings lost their footing in the third period and allowed the Bruins to score two more goals and win the game 4-2.
The following night the two teams took the ice in Estevan to face off once again.
The only goal of the game would be scored seven minutes and 48 seconds into the first period when Prymak assisted Kabir Gill in scoring his first SJHL career goal on a power-play opportunity.
The 1-0 victory gives Joseph Young his fourth SJHL career shutout and makes him the goaltender with the most shutouts this season than any other team in the league.
The Red Wings next game is on Friday, Jan.24 when the Humboldt Broncos come to town. Puck drops at 7:30 p.m.
