Gordon scores twice, including winner, as the Broncos down the Pats 3-2 in OT

REGINA - Coda Gordon scored twice, including the overtime winner, as the Swift Current Broncos edged the host Regina Pats 3-2 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

Graham Black scored Swift Current’s (4-1-4) other goal while Reece Scarlett and Adam Lowry each had two assists.

Scoring both goals for Regina (4-5-1) was Chandler Stephenson. Picking up assists were Lane Scheidl, Colten Jobke, Luke Fenske and Dyson Stevenson.

After a scoreless first, Stephenson started the scoring with a power-play goal early the second.

Black and Gordon responded with power-play goals less than four minutes apart to make it a 2-1 game heading into the third.

Midway through the final period Stephenson scored his second of the game and third of the year to force the overtime period.

Late in extra time Regina’s Kade Pilton was called for roughing, which set up the Bronco’s third and final power-play goal of the night with 54 seconds left in the game.

Eetu Laurikainen made 21 saves for the win and Matt Hewitt stopped 27 in a losing effort.

Swift Current went 3-for-6 on the power play while Regina scored once on six chances of its own with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
