Warriors-Fioretti-Sept29Sam Fioretti drives wide on Brandon's Ayrton Nikkel.

Coming off a loss in Prince Albert on Friday, the Moose Jaw Warriors came out firing on Saturday against the Brandon Wheat Kings.  Sam Fioretti scored a hat trick on the way to a 6-1 at Moasic Place.


Fioretti opened the scoring for the Tribe at 2:50 of the first period with a power play goal from Brayden Point and Joel Edmundson.  Fioretti notched his second of the frame at 8:46, rookie Miles Warkentine picked up the only assist which happened to be his first point of his WHL career.  At 11:50, Bryson Gore scored his first WHL goal when he beat Brandon goalie Corbin Boes after gobbling up a rebound on a Reid Jackson shot, the assist by Jackson was his first as a member of the Warriors.


Up 3-0 to start the second Moose Jaw added to their lead with a 5-on-3 power play goal from Carter Hansen, Morgan Rielly and Sam Fioretti picked up the helpers.  Brandon’s Eric Roy put the visitors on the scoreboard at 8:25 when he finished an odd man rush; 16 year old Wheat King rookie Jayce Hawryluck recorded his first WHL point by picking up an assist.


It didn’t take long for the Warriors to respond; just under two minutes later Jordan Wyton scored his first of the year on a breakaway, which also happened to be his first goal at home during his three year career.  Sam Fioretti finished off Moose Jaw’s second period with a power play with 18 second left in the frame, making it 6-1.


Neither team found the back of the net in the third, after all was said and done the Warriors skated away with the 6-1 win, improving their record to 2-2.  Fioretti led the Warriors with three goals and four points; Wyton and Hansen had a goal and two points each; Morgan Rielly had two assists; Justin Paulic made 18 saves in the win; Moose Jaw was 3-for-4 on the power play and 6-for-6 on the penalty kill.
