Lowry's hat trick, Bow's shutout, leads Swift Current Broncos past Kootenay Ice

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Adam Lowry scored a hat trick to reach a new career high in goals while leading the Swift Current Broncos to a 4-0 win over the visiting Kootenay Ice on Sunday in Western Hockey League action.

Swift Current also had a goal from Graham Black with his 15th of the season. Coda Gordon chipped in with three assists.

Mackenzie Skapski stopped 50 shots for Kootenay (10-22-1).

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
