To say the Moose Jaw AAA Warriors were unhappy with their performance earlier in the week in a loss to the Swift Current Legionnaires would be an understatement.

Head coach Trevor Weisgerber wanted to see a much, much better effort from his troops in their return to the ice in Yorkton this weekend, and oh boy, did his troops get the message.

The Warriors got the fast start they were looking for with the opening goal of the game and never looked back, scoring seven times in the second period and taking a 10-5 victory over Maulers.

Moose Jaw improved to 3-1 with the victory, Yorkton fell to 0-6-0-1.

Grady Hoffman got things going only 2:38 into the game, and while the Maulers would tie things up before the period was out, that was the last good news for the home team on the day.

The two squads would exchange goals early in the second, but after Yorkton tied things up with 16:19 to play in the period, the Warriors went on their scoring tear, scoring six times in the next 12 minutes.

Moose Jaw hit double digits at the 5:11 mark of the third on an Austin Woodley shorthanded goal before Yorkton added three markers in garbage time.

Woodley, Hoffman, Orin Olson and Blake Betson all finished with two goals and an assist for Moose Jaw, with Jackson Allan and Brady Wilson rounding out their offensive output. Rowan Calvert, Connor Miller and Jake Briltz all had three assists each, Ryder Knutson and Dallen Oxelgren had two helpers apiece.

Dawson Karol, Cade Kennedy, Kyle Weisgarber, Jaxson Sperling and Shaden Duliak had the Yorkton goals.

Ethan Fechter turned aside 21 shots in taking the win, the Warriors fired 33 at starter John Macpherson and third-period replacement Frank Chaboyer.

The two teams are right back at it at 1 p.m. on Sunday in Yorkton.
