Despite Richards’ goals, Wings finish off weekend sweep of Bruins

The Austin Bruins made things interesting, but they ran out of time as they lost to the Aberdeen Wings 3-2 in Aberdeen Saturday, giving the Wings a two-game weekend sweep.

Jens Richards scored his first two goals of the season in the final nine minutes for Austin (3-3-1 overall), but it was all the offense the Bruins could muster.

Aberdeen (13-0 overall) out-shot Austin 47-17, and Hudson Hodges stopped 44 shots for Austin.
