Ketlo can't save Pats
By Greg Harder Sat, Sep 4 2010 COMMENTS(0) Slap Shots
MOOSE JAW — The last line of defence was just about the only one for the Regina Pats on Saturday.
Veteran netminder Damien Ketlo stood on his head behind a rookie-ladden crew that was thrown to the wolves at the Civic Centre. The result was a 3-0 pre-season loss to the Moose Jaw Warriors, who avenged Friday’s 5-2 setback in Regina.
The Warriors went with an older lineup on Saturday, dressing nine WHL rookies (none of whom were 15-year-olds) compared to 11 for the Pats, who had three 15-year-olds.
Regina was outshot 12-5 in a scoreless opening frame but Ketlo couldn’t hold off the Warriors forever. The home team broke the ice early in the second period when Spencer Edwards converted a cross-crease feed 2:54 into the frame, then rookie Sam Fioretti wired a shot under the cross-bar just 35 seconds later for a 2-0 lead.
It could have been a lot worse if not for Ketlo, who faced 28 shots through two periods while counterpart Brandon Glover didn’t break a sweat, facing only nine.
The trend continued in the third as Ketlo turned away wave after wave while the Pats failed to mount any kind of an offensive threat outside of star centre Jordan Weal.
Moose Jaw eventually put it away with an empty net goal by Jesse Paradis with 17 seconds on the clock. The Warriors outshot the Pats 39-14, with Glover picking up an easy shutout.
EXTRAS: D Colby Williams, 15, made his WHL debut on Saturday after signing a contract earlier in the day with the Pats . . . Regina’s scratches were D Brandon Davidson, D Mitch Spooner, D Myles Bell, RW Garrett Mitchell, LW Hampus Gustafsson, C Colin Reddin, RW Killian Hutt, LW Carter Ashton, RW Dyson Stevenson, G Dawson Guhle, F Bryton Mills, D Tyler Borstmayer, D Tyler Pavkovich, F Devin Balness. Mitchell, Balness and Hutt didn’t play in either game on the weekend due to injuries.
