Broncos Take Dominant Victory Over Blades

The Swift Current Broncos took an impressive 10-1 victory over the Saskatoon Blades at the Credit Union Centre Friday night.

Broncos Captain Adam Lowry would open the scoring eight minutes into play to give Swift Current a 1-0 lead.  Levi Bews would follow suit making it 2-0 near the end of the first period on his third goal of the season.

Under five minutes into the second frame, Gull Lake product Justin Spagrud would up the Broncos lead to three with an unassisted marker.  But, no more than one minute later Saskatoon’s Jessey Astles would put the Blades on the board and close the gap to two.  Near the midway mark of the period, Reece Scarlett and Bews would tally markers seconds apart to make it 5-1 Broncos.  Followed soon after by a lethal Broncos power play which saw the team tally four back-to-back markers on the man advantage from Ryon Moser, Lowry, Coda Gordon and Dillon Heatherington to make it 9-1 after 40 minutes of play.  The Blades would switch netminders in and amongst the flury of Bronco goals as Buffalo Sabres prospect Andrey Makarov would replace 17-year-old Alex Moodie in net for the duration of play.

Neither team would get onto the scoresheet for the majority of the third frame until a late penalty call to Astles would send the Broncos on their fifth power play of the evening where rookie Tanner LeSann would capitalize as he would record his first WHL career goal and wrap up the scoring making it a 10-1 final.

The Broncos were outshot 47-39, yet went 5 for 5 on the man advantage.
