Warriors Post BIG Win over Blades

The Moose Jaw Warriors knocked off the top of the conference Saskatoon Blades 4-1 tonight. Big man Dylan McIlrath got the Warriors on the board on the man advantage. Blades would manage a single goal in the first nearing the end of play from Chris Collins.

Second period, just a single goal on the break away from Captain Spencer Edwards. Rookie Morgan Rielly would score in third followed by a Matt Grant breakaway marker, his second of the season to make it 4-1.

Shots were kept to just 24 for Saskatoon and 21 for the tribe. The Warriors went 1/3 on the power play and 3/3 on the penalty kill. Saskatoon held the Warriors to just 3 shots in the third, a season low; yet the home team limited the Blades shots to just 7. The win moves the Warriors just 9 points behind the division and conference leading Blades.

Warriors sit just 2 points back of 4th and only 5 points back of 2nd place in the Conference. The tribe will play a home and home with Brandon before breaking for Christmas.
