Game Summary: Broncos at Warriors

Back in the win column are the Moose Jaw Warriors after a 5-2 victory Saturday night at Mosaic Place. The Warriors scored two goals just twenty-five seconds apart late in the second to grab the two points and in the process end a three winless game skid.

James Henry set up the game tying goal and then scored the game-winning goal to lead his club to victory. Henry finished with a goal and a two assists on the night. Travis Brown scored on a wrist shot from the point that Henry set up to tie the game at 2-2 at with about two and a half minutes left in the middle frame.

The Warriors scored four unanswered goals in the final two periods of the game. Carter Hansen and Kenton Miller, his second of the game, scored in the third would seal the game for the home team.

The first period saw the Warriors push the pace. The home side did get behind early, just 26 seconds in Richard Nedomlel, the Detroit Red Wings 2011 draft pick, notched his eighth on the season. The Broncos would gain a one goal lead. The Warriors would tie the game at the 13 minute mark of the period. Miller would step out of the corner and put the puck top shelf for his 29th of the season and even the game.

Miller, with his pair of goals, hit the 30-goal mark on the year. He is the second Warrior to reach that mark, Braes has 36 on the season, he has 12 of his season total since coming over to the Warriors in January.

The Warriors were constantly putting pucks at the Broncos net and goaltender Jon Groenheyde with a game total of 48. The Warriors Luke Siemens would turn aside 17 of 19 shots he would face.
