Some local minor hockey teams had a busy long weekend as the Peewee AA Warriors, Bantam AA Warriors and Midget AA Warriors all hit the road for games on Saturday and Sunday.

Peewee AA Open Year Unbeaten

The Peewee AA Warriors travelled to Yorkton for their long weekend and squared off with the Terriers in a pair of games in the South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League.

Moose Jaw knocked off the Terriers 7-2 on Saturday with Atley Calvert leading the way with four goals and five points. Evan Gallaghan chipped in with a goal and six points, while Nicholas Lougheed had the other two goals and added three assists as well.

Jaxson Taupert picked up the win in goal for Moose Jaw.

In their second game of the weekend, the Warriors and Terriers had a rematch on Sunday and this one was much tighter as the two teams battled to a 3-3 tie at the Yorkton Kinsmen Arena.

Calvert and Callaghan found the back of the net again for Moose Jaw in the game on Sunday, while Kirk Mullen added the other marker.

Calvert finished the weekend with five goals and seven points.

The Peewee AAs will be back in action this Saturday against the Weyburn Wings at the Bert Hunt Arena.

Narrow Losses for Bantam AA Warriors

The Bantam AA Warriors put together two strong efforts on Saturday and Sunday, but still couldn't find their first win of the season in the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League.

They opened the weekend with a 5-2 loss on Saturday against the Battlefords Barons.

The first period was back and forth with the Battlefords scoring 1:20 into the game, but Moose Jaw responding less than two minutes later with Jaxen Wiebe making it 1-1. Quinton Ross would score midway through the period to give Moose Jaw a 2-1 lead, but a late goal from Luke Fennig evened the score at 2-2 after one.

The Warriors couldn't beat Battlefords goalie Zev Genereaux after that however, despite throwing 32 shots his way over the next two periods.

Markius Koma scored in the second for the Barons and then they added two more goals in the third for the win.

Wiley Cozac made 27 saves in the loss for Moose Jaw.

The second game of the weekend again saw the Warriors put up a good fight, but come up short as they lost 3-1 to the West Central Wheat Kings.

Casey McDonald scored 38 seconds into the game for West Central, but again Moose Jaw came back strong with Ross tying the game just before the midway point of the period.

West Central would take the lead late in the frame with Ty Bahm finding the back of the net for a 2-1 lead after one.

Moose Jaw couldn't find the tying goal in the second and West Central put up some insurance in the third with Tye Scherger making it 3-1 midway through the frame.

The two losses put Moose Jaw's record at 0-5 on the year. They'll try for their first win again on Thursday when they host the Regina Aces at the Bert Hunt Arena. Puck drops at 7:30pm.

Midgets Split Weekend

It was the tale of two games for the Midget AA Warriors on Saturday and Sunday in the South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League.

They opened the weekend with a 7-2 loss to the Melville Millionaires on Saturday and then finished it off on a high note with a 7-2 win over the Yorkton Terriers on Sunday.

In Saturday's game, the Warriors fell behind 3-0 after one and 4-0 after two. They finally got on the board when Josh Fitzpatrick struck for a power play goal 1:32 into the third to make it 5-1.

Connor Gillies scored for Moose Jaw late in the third period with Melville leading 7-1 at that point.

The Warriors put together a strong bounce back effort on Sunday in Yorkton.

Joey Prebushewski and Levi Watkinson scored 27 second apart early in the first period to put Moose Jaw up early.

Yorkton eventually tied the game with a goal midway through the first and another early in the second, but Austin Miller, Fitzpatrick and Dylan Jones scored for Moose Jaw in a 3:38 span to make it 5-2 after two.

Fitzpatrick picked up his second goal of the game, and third of the weekend, with 5:30 gone in the third period to make it 6-2. Prebushewski added his second of the game just 1:07 later to finish of the 7-2 win for Moose Jaw.

The Midget AA Warriors are now 2-1-0 on the year. They return to action on Sunday when they welcome the Regina Vics to the Barkman Arena in Caronport.
