Overtime win for AAA Warriors over Pat Cs

Warriors move within a point of fifth place in league standings
The Moose Jaw Warriors are slowly inching their way up the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League standings, with their 3-2 shootout win over the Regina Pat Canadians on Wednesday marking their latest success.

Atley Calvert and Parker Douglas scored the Warriors’ goals in regulation, with Calvert’s marker the lone goal of the second period as the two teams were tied 1-1 through two.

Former Warriors forward Cal Caragata scored both goals for Regina in regulation.

Neither squad could score in overtime, setting the stage for Warriors goaltender Dylan Ernst in the shootout. Ernst – fresh off winning gold with Team Saskatchewan in the WHL Cup last weekend – stopped all three shooters he faced and 27 shots in the game to earn the victory.

Connor McGrath scored the lone goal in the shootout for Moose Jaw.

Jared Thompson made 29 saves for Regina.

The Warriors now sit in sixth place, one point back of fifth place and a potential berth in the Mac’s Midget AAA Tournament and two points back of the third-place Saskatoon Blazers.

Next action is Saturday night when they travel to Notre Dame to face the Argos.
