The Red Deer Rebels suffered their first loss of the season in Moose Jaw Saturday night, falling 4-2 to the hometown Warriors. It was the second game in two nights for Red Deer in the middle of their three-game eastern road trip which wraps up in Regina on Sunday.
The first period saw Moose Jaw strike first when Brayden Burke scored on the power play at 10:37 to put the Warriors up 1-0. A few minutes later, Moose Jaw scored again at 13:23 when Justin Almeida got one past Rebels net minder Ethan Anders. Red Deer would get on the board though at 16:31 when Grayson Pawlenchuk beat Warriors goaltender Brody Willms to make it 2-1 Moose Jaw after twenty minutes.
The second period saw Moose Jaw light the lamp first, when Tristin Langan scored at 3:33 to make it 3-1 Warriors. It would later turn out to be the game winning goal. Red Deer did however respond when Mason McCarty scored on the power play at 7:04 to cut the Moose Jaw lead to 3-2 heading into the second intermission.
The only goal of the third period was an empty netter from Moose Jaw’s Jayden Halbgewachs with five seconds left to seal the deal by making it a 4-2 final.
The Warriors outshot the Rebels 35-19 on the night, with Moose Jaw being one for three on the power play and the Rebels one for four.
The loss drops the Rebels record to 3-1 but still first place in the WHL’s Central Division, while the Warriors remain unbeaten at 4-0 and tops in the East.
Red Deer’s next game is in Regina Sunday to face the 1-2-1 Pats. It’s a 4:00 p.m. face-off.
