It’s getting tougher and tougher for the Regina Pats to fly under the radar.
Regina continued its assault on the WHL’s elite Friday night with an 8-2 spanking of the East Division-leading Moose Jaw Warriors before 5,498 boisterous fans at the Brandt Centre. It was the Pats’ third straight win over Moose Jaw after dropping the first three games of the season series.
Each of the previous meetings between Regina and Moose Jaw — potential first-round playoff combatants — had gone down to the wire, with three of them requiring overtime and neither side surpassing the three-goal barrier.
However, that trend came to an abrupt and shocking halt Friday.
“There isn’t really much to say,” lamented Warriors assistant captain Quinton Howden, whose team has lost three in a row. “(The Pats) deserved to win the game. They played a lot better than we did. We just didn’t work. There’s no excuses. There’s nothing really we can say. We have to be able to let go of this one and rebound tomorrow.”
