LETHBRIDGE - The Lethbridge Pronghorns men's hockey team battled back from a one-goal deficit on three separate occasions on Friday night, en route to a 4-3 overtime victory over the Manitoba Bisons that snapped an eight-game losing streak.

Forward Ryon Moser, pointless through the first ten games of the year, scored his first goal of the season just over a minute into the overtime off a deflection of defenceman Tyler Hansen's shot from the point.

Evan Wardley, Spenser Jensen and Mitch Maxwell scored the other Pronghorns goals, while Garret Hughson made 38 saves in the victory.

The win improves the Pronghorns record to 2-8-1, while the Bisons earn a point and move to 6-4-1.

Pronghorns head coach Spiros Anastas says at this point, all they can worry about is their own process, progression and ultimately, results.

"We can't get too high off single wins. We need to continue to string great process games together and we'll keep chipping away," Anastas continued.

"It's nice to get that win, but more importantly I am happy with the no-quit attitude and effort tonight. We're banged up pretty badly right now, but our guys know what we're capable of and just need to keep chipping away."

The Pronghorns and Bisons will be back at it tomorrow afternoon, puck drops at 1:00pm at Nicholas Sheran Arena.

L.C.I., Cardston, and W.R. Myers see their football seasons end, while Willow Creek advances to provincial final
