The Warriors kicked off their Get Gutsy Fundraiser and Parent’s weekend tonight. With a ceremonial puck drop with Mayor Glen Hagel. The Warriors challenged their fans to raise $1,000.00 in order to see Spencer Edwards and Quinton Howden speed skate.
The Warriors started off the game with a Collin Bowman marker. Nearing the end of the second Bowman got his second of the night to give the Warriors a two goal lead into the first. Heading into the second period, the Tigers would tie it up with goals only minutes apart both from Ryan Harrison. Antonin Honejsek would end the second with one final goal.
Third period was all Tigers. Three straight goals from Cole Grbavac, Tyler Pitlick, Linden Vey and Patrik Parkkonen. The Warriors fall 6-3 to the Tigers, but did win off the ice tonight. The tribe raised $1000.00 for the first night of the “Get Gutsy” fundraiser, raising funds for “MJ Place” for those who suffer from Crohn’s and Colitis.
Tomorrow night the tribe will be looking to raise another $1000.00 and then the Warriors staff will be getting “pied” at the end of the game.
