Warriors-Fioretti-Dec15Warriors captain Sam Fioretti has 14 goals and 39 points this season.

Being on the road for almost two weeks, there isn’t a lot of time to correct mistakes from game-to-game or to work on smoothing out the rough edges during practice.

Now that the Moose Jaw Warriors are back from their six games in ten days road trip that saw them travel almost 4,000 kilometres on the bus, the team can get back to a normal routine.

“It’s nice to be back, we were gone for a long time and it’s just nice to be back again,” said captain Sam Fioretti before the team’s first practice back at Mosaic Place on Monday.

“It was a disappointing road trip to say the least,” added Fioretti.  “We didn’t come away with the amount of points that we wanted to, but we just need to keep pushing forward and working at practice to keep improving.”

The Warriors lost all six games on the road trip and have lost seven straight games overall.  The team isn’t happy with their performance in the US Division and want to be better.

“We had some good games along there where we deserved more than what we got,” said Fioretti.  “It’s a matter of executing though and we’ll have to look at that going forward.”

Playing that many games in a short time span can tell a team a lot about themselves and also expose areas of their game that they need to work on, but with not much practice time between games, they can’t adjust those areas until now.

Going against some tough competition, the Warriors also saw what they do well against top teams.

“We’ve just got to out work teams and play our game and with that we’re going to have success,” said Fioretti.

The Warriors will now get a week to work on their game before returning to game action and that started on Monday.

“It will be huge to have a week here to improve and we’ll be ready to go on Friday,” Fioretti added.

The Prince George Cougars will be in town coming up on Friday on Friday and then the Warriors will travel to Regina on Saturday for another meeting with the Pats.

Warriors Hitting Taking To Sky…  Members of the Warriors will be soaring high above the Friendly City on Tuesday afternoon as the team joins forces with the Canadian Forces Snowbirds.  This will be the third straight year that the two teams come together to share information on how each other prepare for games and flights.  We’ll have more this story on Tuesday.
