The Moose Jaw Warriors battled hard but came up just short against the country's number one junior team on Saturday. The Warriors dropped a tight 4-3 decision to the Prince Albert Raiders on the road. The loss ended Moose Jaw's eight game point streak.

Cole Fonstad opened the scoring for the Raiders at 4:34 of the first period. Warriors captain Josh Brook then capitalized on the powerplay in the dying moments of the period to even things up.

The Raiders took a 2-1 advantage with an early second period goal, but Brayden Tracey scored the equalizer at 15:31 of the second. Unfortunately, Prince Albert's Kaiden Guhle would put the Raiders back on top less than a minute later.

Trailing 3-2, the Warriors worked hard throughout the third period, outshooting Prince Albert 15-11. Justin Almeida would eventually score on the powerplay at the 15:45 mark to tie things up once again, but Prince Albert's Brett Leason would score the game winner just moments later.

The Warriors went 3 for 5 on the powerplay and were perfect on the penalty kill.

Moose Jaw's next game is on Feb. 6 in Saskatoon. The Tribe will then continue their road trip by heading to Alberta to visit Lethbridge, Red Deer and Calgary, before finally returning to Mosaic Place to take on the Edmonton Oil Kings on Feb. 14.
