The Moose Jaw Warriors went into Saskatchewan Male AAA Hockey League play this week looking to find more consistency in their game while also looking to regain their winning ways from earlier in the season.

They got that quest off to a good start on Tuesday evening, taking a 4-1 victory over the Notre Dame Hounds at Mosaic Place.

The Warriors got things off to a solid start in the contest, as Liam Fitzpatrick opened scoring with 7:31 remaining in the first period to give Moose Jaw a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.

That set the stage for an impressive second frame for the home team, beginning when Connor Miller put the Warriors ahead by two with 31 seconds gone in the frame.

Andrew Altwasser got one back for Notre Dame less than a minute later, but 3:13 after that marker, Jackson Allan restored the two-goal lead. Team scoring leader Rowan Calvert then added an insurance marker, with his 11th of the season with 7:53 to play in the period giving Moose Jaw a 4-1 edge.

The Warriors defence was able to hold the ground the rest of the way, keeping the Hounds off the scoresheet in the third on their way to the comfortable win.

Ethan Fechter was the winning goaltender, turning aside 34 shots, while the Warriors had 30 shots on Notre Dame’s Wilson Maxfield.

Moose Jaw improved to 11-7-0-0 with the win and moved into fifth place in the league standings, Notre Dame is now 13-5-0-1 and holds down third place.

The Warriors are back in action this Friday and Saturday, when they travel to Prince Albert for a two-game weekend set against the Mintos (10-6-0-1).
