LETHBRIDGE - The Hurricanes hoped to add to their recent win streak at the Enmax Centre Friday night, but the Brandon Wheat kings put a halt to the wins at four games, taking a 5-1 win.

The first period got off to a fast pace, but remained scoreless at the midway point. However, with less than six minutes remaining in the period, the Wheaties took control and the game went downhill for the Canes.

At 14:11, Brandon’s Evan Weinger put his team on the board with a short-handed goal.  Less than a minute later, Weinger repeated the performance, with a second short-handed goal on a breakaway,

Brandon wasn’t finished with the goals.  With less than a minute and a half remaining in the first, Ty Lewis got a third puck past Stuart Skinner, and the first period closed with the Wheat Kings ahead 3-0.

The second frame picked up where the first ended. Just over three minutes in, Brandon’s Cole Reinhardt added the period’s only goal, taking the score to 4-0 and the Wheat Kings were also ahead 25-17 shots-on-goal.

 The third period opened with a goalie change, as the Canes put Reece Klassen between the pipes. The team laid on the pressure, but eight minutes in, Connor Gutenberg charted another goal, putting the Wheat Kings ahead 5-0.

Lethbridge picked up the shooting and at 11:10 the Canes were on the board courtesy of Calen Addison, assisted by Josh Tarzwell and Dylan Cozens.

At the end of the game, the Hurricanes’ record was at 11-13-1-0.  They return to Enmax ice on Saturday (Dec 2) night to host Victoria for Teddy Bear Toss night
