The Moose Jaw Winmar Warriors put themselves back in the win column on Thursday, Nov. 24 and now find themselves with plenty of company in the Sask Male AAA Hockey League standings.

The Warriors overcame a 2-1 deficit with a pair of goals in the third period and would go on to a 3-2 victory over the Estevan Bears at the Moose Jaw Events Centre.

The win moved Moose Jaw into a four-way tie for sixth place in the 12-team league, joining Prince Albert, Warman and Estevan in sitting six points back of the fifth-place Saskatoon Contacts.

Things didn’t get off to the greatest of starts for the home team on Thursday night, as Carter Tuplin scored the lone goal of the first period with 11 seconds remaining to give the Bears a 1-0 lead.

Rhett Perrin tied the game for Moose Jaw five minutes into the second, but Evhan Allan restored the Bears lead with 3:27 to play, sending Estevan into the final frame with a one-goal edge. 

That set the stage for the third-period comeback, with Dylan Duzan scoring on the power play to tie things up at the 3:11 mark and Liam Fitzpatrick potting the game winner with 7:26 to play.

Jake Britlz -- who was named the Warriors’ game star -- picked up a pair of assists on the tying and winning goals, while Grady Hoffman also had a pair of helpers on the night.

Ryan Bain turned aside 24 shots in taking the win, Kaden Perron had a 36-save showing for Estevan.

The Winmar Warriors have the weekend off but are back in action on Wednesday, Nov. 30 when they travel to Saskatoon to face the league-leading Blazers. Next home action is Saturday, Dec. 10 when the Warriors host the Regina Pat Canadians.
