Broncos Defeat Warriors9-Sep-12
The Swift Current Broncos went 2-0 in their weekend home-and-home with the Moose Jaw Warriors, taking a 3-2 win at Mosaic Place Sunday afternoon.
The Warriors would take the edge in shots after 20 minutes outshooting the Broncos 9-5, but neither team would get on the board as play would remain scoreless.
Colby Cave would extend the Broncos lead to two 11 seconds into the final frame tapping one in past Warriors' goaltender Daniel Wapple. Overage defenceman Dalton Reum would follow suit for the Broncos netting his first of the pre-season and giving the Broncos a 3-0 lead late in the third period. A late goal by Warriors' Andrew Johnson would put Moose Jaw on the board and spark the Warriors offence as they would tally an additional single two minutes later by Kendall McFaull to put the contest within one with 30 seconds to go in regulation. But, Steven Myland would hold on for the win making some great saves in the dying seconds of play resulting in a 3-2 final.
The Broncos were outshot 30-23, but went 2 for 3 on the man advantage. With the win the Broncos improve their pre-season record to 3-2.
