BRANDON, Man. - Andrew Clark scored three times to lift the Brandon Wheat Kings to a 7-4 victory over the Prince Albert Raiders in the Western Hockey League on Friday night.
Mark Stone notched two goals, including the game-winner, for the Wheat Kings, who blew a 4-0 lead before recovering to score the last three goals of the game. Nathan Green and Brayden Schenn also scored as Brandon improved to 36-15-3-1.
Brandon Herrod, Bryce Lamb, Jordan Rowley and Jordan Hickmott replied for the Raiders, who fell to 24-29-3-1.
Brandon netminder Andrew Hayes made 25 saves, while Steven Stanford stopped 33 shots for Prince Albert.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
