The Swift Current Broncos dropped a 7-1 decision to the Calgary Hitmen at the Credit Union iPlex on TWO TWO TWOsday.
The Hitmen would gain a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes of play as Kenton Miller and Trevor Cheek would both slip one past Bronco netminder Austin Smith.
In the second frame, Justin Kirsch would add a single five minutes into play. Following the goal, Jon Groenheyde would replace netminder Smith between the posts for the duration of play. A Hooking call to Adam Lowry late in the period would allow Victor Rask to capitalize and force the Broncos to carry a 4-0 deficit into the third.
Near the midway mark of the final frame, Rask would score his second consecutive single of the evening and broaden the gap to five. Less than a minute later, Coda Gordon would break the potential shut out on the man advantage capitalizing on the power play. Unfortunately a hat trick for Rask and a single by Peter Kosterman would wrap up the scoring for the evening and make it a 7-1 final. Shots on net were 44-34 Calgary. The Broncos were 1 for 7 on the power play.
