The Wheatland Kings went 1-1 this weekend.
On Friday (Feb 2), the team won 5-1 in an away game against the Three Hills Trashers at Centennial Place Area.
Then, on Saturday (Feb 3), the team lost 6-3 in a home game against the High River Brewing Co. Flyers.
“We played well on Friday night in Three Hills and ended up winning, but we lost on Saturday to High River, which was a game we needed to win,” General Manager Lee Smith said.
According to Smith, since player Tegan Skehar has been back, he has been a top player and stood out during Friday's game.
Recently, forward Philip Raycroft had just come back following some time off to heal an injury but got reinjured during the game on Friday and was unable to play on Saturday.
According to Smith, he may be out for a little while longer, depending on what doctors say.
The team only has three more games left in the regular season.
“We need to really win at least two of the games. We must come together as a team, and we need to make sure we have great goaltending, defense, and forwards."
The next game is on Friday, February 9, against Airdrie Techmation Thunder at Rob Ebbesen Arena, and then the team will head to Coaldale to play against the Coaldale Copperheads on Saturday (Feb 10).
Smith said the team needs to step up their game now that they are down to the last little bit of the season.
The team is hopeful for a win so they can secure their spot in the playoffs.
“We are down to the final bit, and hopefully we will have some playoff games at home,” Smith said.
