It was a big win on Thursday for the Moose Jaw WINMAR AAA Warriors as they snuck by the Estevan Bears 3-2 at the Moose Jaw Events Centre. Moose Jaw's own Liam Fitzpatrick scored the game-winner in the third period.
“It felt great, I finally got the monkey off my back,” says Fitzpatrick. “I came onto the ice from the bench and we had the puck down low and I was floating in the slot and we got it to our defenceman, a shot on net, got the rebound, and put it home.”
Warriors netminder Ryan Bain stopped 24 of 26 shots he faced for his second win of the season.
“I was seeing the puck really well tonight, there were a few times I misread where the shot was going but overcame that,” explains Bain. “I felt I had a solid game to get back into it, as we haven’t been winning lately.”
