It wasn't the start to their BC Division road swing the Moose Jaw Warriors probably wanted, as they dropped a 5-2 decision to the Prince George Cougars on Wednesday at the CN Centre. Assistant coach Scott King said following the game they couldn't ask for a better start.
"I thought the first period we were really good," says King. "We had a lot of good looks and left a lot on the table with missed nets and things like that. I thought we could've up four goals and changed the game a little bit. The first period was fantastic."
Ryder Korczak and Lucas Brenton scored for the Warriors last night. They continue their road trip on Friday night in Kamloops against the Blazers at 9:00 p.m.
After a tough loss on Tuesday night, the Moose Jaw WINMAR AAA Warriors return home on Thursday and host the Estevan Bears at the Moose Jaw Events Centre for a 7:00 p.m. puck drop. The Warriors are 1-0 against the Bears after a 5-3 win back on October 12.
