Pats Beat Warriors for the 2nd Time in Three Days.
The Moose Jaw Warriors continue to struggle without points leader, Brayden Burke.
For the second straight game, Burke, who has already surpassed 100 points on the season, was kept off the ice and his absence couldn't have been more clear, as the typically high-potency Warrior offence struggled to find the net in the Sunday afternoon game.
The Warriors, who were playing the Regina Pats for the third time in five days, scored first. Jayden Halbgewachs pocketed a cross-ice pass from Justin Almeida to put the good guys up 1-0.
The goal was Halbgewachs 55th of the season, surpassing Trevor Jobe's single season tally from all the way back in 1987.
The Warriors took that 1-0 lead into period two.
Regina scored twice in close succession, one by Emil Oskanen and another by Sam Steel. Both goals were assisted by Cale Fleury.
The Warriors equalized it with :15 seconds left in the second. Brett Howden got the finish on a beautiful tic-tac-toe from Halbgewachs and Vince Loschiavo.
Both Howden and Halbgewachs are getting freakishly close to passing Jason Bast, for 4th and 5th on the all-time Warriors point scoring list.
It was 2-2 heading into the third.
Fleury got his third point of the match, this beating Brody Willms with a goal, assisted by Libor Hajek and Scott Mahovlich.
Then, shortly after that, Matt Bradley netted his 34th, assisted by Oskanen and Josh Mahura.
That's how the game ended. 4-2 Pats.
Warriors are back in action tomorrow afternoon, in Brandon, against the Wheat Kings.
In other action, the Swift Current Broncos lost to Medicine Hat on Saturday; so Moose Jaw retains a three point lead in first place in the WHL.
