Thanksgiving comes early for American's

The score may not show it, but the Moose Jaw Warriors gave their opponents a good game for the first 40 minutes at Monday's matinee game. The Tri City Americans were in town for Thanksgiving and the Warrior's American guests were thankful for four power play opportunites that lead to 3 power play goals.

Tri scored the first of the game from scoring leader, Adam Hughesman. Nathan MacMaster continued on his scoring streak and tied things up to end the first period. Young Connor Rankin scored on the American's power play to give the visitors a one goal lead, followed up with a goal from twenty year old Mike Brown. Import Michal Hlinka managed to bring the Warriors within one to end forty minutes of play.

Quinton Howden tied the game at 3 a piece early in the third, yet 94' born Rankin hammered another one home on his second power play goal of the night. Eighteen year old Patrick Holland scored the go ahead goal on another warrior's penatly. Jordan Messier did not let up, scoring one final marker in the third to put the Americans up 6-3.

Warriors goaltender Thomas Heemskerk faced 37 shots, turning away 31 of them. The Warriors fired 36 shots at Drew Owsley who had some spectacular saves on the night. The Warriors return to action Wednesday when they face the Kootenay Ice and look to break their thee game losing skid at home.
