Despite pouring 48 shots on goal, the Lloydminster Bobcats came out on the short side of a 3-1 score against the Calgary Mustangs at the Father David Bauer Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Kyle Dronyk had the lone goal in the contest, scoring his second of the season on a slick breakaway move early in the third period, bringing Mustangs goaltender Bailey Brkin's shutout bid to an end after the net minder had turned aside 25 shots through two periods.
Trailing 2-1 after the Dronyk goal, the Bobcats kept up the pressure with a whopping 23 shots on net in the third period, but the Mustangs regained a two goal lead late in the period as a drifting point shot from Nathan Walker beat Bobcats goaltender Austin McGrath through a screen to make it 3-1.
Ultimately, the Mustangs converted three of 19 shots on goal in the contest to knock off the Bobcats, who have now dropped five straight games.
Salvatore Scalise got the Mustangs on the board early in the first with a quick low shot on McGrath to make it 1-0, which is how the first period ended. In the second, Tyler Lentz added to the Mustangs lead with a power play goal to make it 2-0 throguh forty minutes before Dronyk got the Bobcats on the board in the final frame.
Lloydminster will close out the 2016 portion of the season on Wednesday night in Sherwood Park.
