Back in Black- Warriors Get First Home Win

It may only be their second win of the season, but the Moose Jaw Warriors seem to have sound their stride once again in tonight's 4-2 victory over a struggling Bronco's hockey club. Heading into tonight, both teams had only won a single game. With a good crowd behind them, the Warriors started off the night with the first power play goal of the regular season coming from Spencer Edwards. Quinton Howden followed him up with the second goal on the evening. Bronco Import Stepan Novotny would sneak one past Thomas Heemskerk to close out the first period.

Early in the second, Captials prospect Cody Eakin shoveled one in to tie the score at two a piece. Twenty year old Dylan Hood would find the back of the net midway through the second period. Score heading into the second break stood 3-2 in the Warriors favor.

Although a valient effort, the Broncos would not be able to find the much needed goal. Eighteen year old Nathan MacMaster ended hopes of a Swift Current comeback with a final dagger in the third. Pressing hard with a two man advantage in the remaining minutes of the game, the Warriors would fend off the blue and white and skate to a their first home win of the regular season.

Nathan MacMaster was named first star of the game, being part of three of the four Warriors goals tonight. Spencer Edwards claimed 2 points on the night and the power line of Dowling, Eakin and Novotny took home two points a piece for Swifty.

Next Warriors action is set for Friday in Saskatoon to face the 5-1 Blades. The Warriors will be back in the Crushed Can on Saturday night to take on the Red Deer Rebels who came from behind to beat Regina 6-5 tonight in the Queen City.
