Home, sweet home at last...

The Moose Jaw War­riors com­pleted their long­est road trip of the sea­son with their most lop­sided win at the very end of it. The War­riors won 9-1 in Medicine Hat 9-1 Fri­day, thanks to a four goal ef­fort from Tan­ner Jean­not after a pair of road games com­pleted their U.S. Di­vi­sion trip. Wed­nes­day, they lost 8-4 to the Tri-City Amer­i­cans and Tues­day they beat the Port­land Win­ter­hawks 6-4.

Jay­den Hal­bgewachs’ empty net goal Tues­day re­stored the War­riors’ two goal lead for good as the team handed Port­land only their sec­ond loss of the sea­son. Hal­bgewachs also helped out with four as­sists in the game as Brett How­den added a pair. Sin­gle mark­ers were notched by Jean­not, Jett Woo and Luka Burzan. Brody Willms stopped 43 of 47 Port­land shots in the game.

The fol­low­ing night they bat­tled the Tri-City Amer­i­cans and sur­ren­dered four third pe­riod goals. Woo, How­den, Justin Almeida and Oleg So­sunov scored for Moose Jaw, with Bray­den Burke chip­ping in a pair of as­sists. Willms turned aside 29 in the loss.

The War­riors closed out their road deal­ings with a blowout vic­tory over Medicine Hat, scor­ing early and of­ten in the process. Jean­not’s four goals were complemented by How­den’s pair of mark­ers, Justin Almeida’s goal and three as­sists and Hal­bgewachs’ goal and two as­sists. Burke had three as­sists in the game and Willms halted 34 of Medicine Hat’s 35 shots.

The War­riors only play a pair of games this week, both against Prince Al­bert: Thurs­day at home at Mo­saic Place and Satur­day at the Art Hauser Cen­tre.
