The Regina Pats ended their three-game Alberta road trip with a 3-2 loss to the Red Deer Rebels on Saturday.

The Pats opened the scoring for a second straight game early in the first period with a goal from Brayden Barnett (3). After the Rebels began a stretch of three consecutive goals, Sam Oremba (5) put the Pats down one in the second period at 3-2.

The Pats got unassisted goals from Barnett and Oremba and a 35-save performance from Kelton Pyne.

The Rebels got goals from Mats Lindgren, Matthew Gard and Carson Birnie and 23 saves from Rhett Stoesser as the Rebels won their fourth straight game.

This marks their fifth straight loss and wraps up a tough November for Regina as they finish 2-8-0-1.

The Pats will conclude their five-game road trip on Friday, December 1, in Brandon with a 7:00 pm puck drop against the Wheat Kings.

The Pats’ following home action is the next night, Saturday, December 2, when they host their annual Teddy Bear Toss game against the visiting Swift Current Broncos.
