On Thursday night, the Kenai River Brown Bears earned the respect of the Wenatchee (Wash.) Wild.
On Friday and Saturday, the Bears felt the full force of that respect.
The Wild responded to a 7-5 loss to the Bears on Thursday by rebounding for a 6-2 victory over Kenai River on Friday and a 2-0 victory on Saturday at the Soldotna Sports Center. There were 860 fans on Friday and 899 on Saturday.
“We didn’t show them enough respect,” said Wenatchee coach Bliss Littler of the Thursday loss.
