The Wheatland Kings split their weekend. 

The Kings lost against the Coledale Copperheads 2-1 but topped the Sylvan Lake Wranglers 3-2. 

Wheatland Kings General Manager, Lee Smith, says overall the team did well.

"We were missing some guys due to illness and injury. We had a lot of chances to beat Coledale but it just didn't happen and then in Sylvan Lake, we did play really, really well as a team and even ended up with a shootout win." 

Smith said that the goaltending was on point.

Corey Ross stopped 28 of 30 shots against the Copperheads while Rhett Harten made 48 saves on 50 shots against the Wranglers.

The Kings are now 10-6-2 on the year and fifth in their division. 

A special cause

The Kings will be playing against the Cochrane Generals at home this weekend to raise money for a special cause. 

"Hockey Fights Cancer is set up by the Cancer Society. We will be doing a 50/50 raffle that game and all of the proceeds will go towards the cause," said Smith. 

The Wheatland Kings will be playing in their yellow jerseys, pink laces, pink socks, or pink tape to show their support for the initiative.

Kings will be playing the Medicine Hat Cubs on November 24 and then the Cochrane Generals on November 25, both games have an 8 p.m. puck drop.
