A late third-period comeback bid by the Swift Current Wolverines on Saturday night in Prince Albert came up just short.
Swift Current scored four unanswered goals in the back half of the last period against the Predators to eventually fall 9-8 at Kinsmen Arena.
Riley Pribyl led the offensive attack for the Wolverines registering a hat-trick and adding an assist. Austin Klimm and Kaiden Fletcher both had three-point outings including a pair of goals.
The loss drops Swift Current to 1-1 in Prairie Gold Lacrosse League regular season play. They'll have a chance to rebound on Friday night when they welcome the Standing Buffalo Fighting Sioux to the Fairview West Arena.
