The warriors defeated the Tigers 6-0 in Moose Jaw.
Tyler Bunz was out with the flu? (MJ broadcaster mentioned it briefly)
Curtis Valk, Hunter Shinkaruk, Kale Kessy, and Brendan Hurley were also not dressed due to injuries and suspensions.
According to the whl gamesheet Dawson Mcauley was the back-up. Chad Labelle was dressed again. The gamesheet said Gavin Broadhead was dressed however I didn't see him on the Ice.
To be honest I thought the Tigers didn't play bad persay. I thought the ref decided to call everything and every other battle the Tigers were getting accidental type penalties called against them... It was one of those games where nothing was going their way.
MJ capitalized on their powerplays going 5 for 7.
The Tigers went 0 for 6.
That pretty much sums up the game right their.
Fight Filled Afair
Sheen, Mckay, Grbavac, Jensen, Bredo, Dieno all got involved in the fisticuffs department....Even the coaches were getting involved verbally on the benches.
Rhyse Dieno won his fight over Andrew Johnson with a KO punch at the end.
Scott Mckay fought Cody Beach....Mckay used a good strategy getting in close to beach firing off some short rabbit punches, largely a draw...Beach looked a little rattled at the end mocking Mckay after the fight.
Cole Grbavac fought Dylan Mcllrath. Mcllrath landed more punches but they were quicker rabbit type punches where as grbavac landed a couple heavier shots...I'd call it a draw...maybe slight edge to Mcllrath
Spencer Jensen fought Shayne Gwinner...the fight was all jensen untill the end where Gwinner got a good punch in that knocked Jensen over...draw.
Riley Sheen got into his first fight against Jordan Wynton. Sheen got in the first punch and Wynton landed the second one then suprised him with a left that knocked sheen over.
With 7 minutes left in the game their was a point where the Tigers only had 5 extra players untill other penalties were over...Patrik Parkkonen and James Bettauer finished the game on forward.
The re-match goes Saturday in the Hat. I wouldn't be suprised to see the same players not dressed again. Very tough schedule playing against the top teams while a good chunk of players are out.
