Selects even up series

The Brandon Wheat Kings rallied from a one-goal third-period deficit, but then couldn’t hold on to their lead on Sunday as they fell 4-3 to the Eastman Selects in Game 2 of their best-of-five Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League semifinal in Beausejour.

Down 2-1 after two periods, Coltyn Bates woke up the Wheat Kings by setting up Josh Kobelka’s goal that tied the game and then put them ahead five minutes later.

However, Jordan McCausland took a late tripping penalty, and Eastman’s Darby Gula took advantage with a power-play goal with 2:47 left on the clock. Brandyn Smook netted the winner 32 seconds later for the Selects, who tied the series 1-1.

Kirk Lycar, a draft pick of the WHL’s Wheat Kings, had a pair of assists for the Selects, who also got markers from Bobby Evans and Landon Plett, while Mario Petit made 25 saves.

Jordy Stallard netted the other goal for Brandon, while Reid Stallard stopped 26 shots.

The Wheat Kings will host Game 3 at the Sportsplex on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

Meanwhile in Winnipeg, Nolan Patrick, a draft pick of the WHL’s Wheat Kings, scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner, for the host Winnipeg Thrashers as they beat the Winnipeg Wild 5-3 to even their best-of-five series at one game apiece.
