The Estevan Bruins are back below the .500 line after a 3-2 loss in Melfort Saturday night.

The Bruins led 1-0 after the first period after an Owen Miley powerplay marker, but got into penalty trouble in the second period and watched their lead disappear.

Mustangs forward and Melfort native Zac Somers scored two powerplay goals in the second period less than a minute apart. He finished with three points on the night.

Mustangs forward Ryan Duguay also finished with three points, including the game winning goal in the third period.

Estevan captain Kade Runke scored the other Bruins goal.

Bruins goaltender Jackon Miller made 29 stops in his first start since Sept. 23.

Estevan is now 8-9 on the year, while Melfort moves to 6-6-4.
