Andrew Johnson scored on a penalty shot in overtime propelling the Moose Jaw Warriors to a come from behind 4-3 win over the Swift Current Broncos Friday night in their home opener at Mosaic Place.
The Broncos silenced the hometown crowd early when Levi Bews scored at 8:01, then Colby Cave scored shorthanded at 9:42 to put the Warriors into a two goal hole entering the first intermission.
Swift Current extended their lead to 3-0 at 10:07 of the second period on a goal from Justin Spagrud, and then Moose Jaw’s special teams took over. Sam Fioretti scored on the power play at 12:42 to put the Warriors on the board, Carter Hansen scored on a two man advantage to pull them to within one heading into the third.
The Tribe found themselves back on the power play early in the third, Justin Kirsch scored at 5:46 when he beat Broncos goalie Eetu Laurikainen with a shot on the right goal line. Later in the third period Kirsch was issued a major and game misconduct for checking from behind on Reece Scarlett, the Bronco defencemen was taken off the ice on a stretcher and taken to the Moose Jaw Union Hospital (there was no update on Scarlett’s condition at the time of publication).
As regulation winded down the Warriors limited the Bronco opportunities while creating their own on the other side of the ice, neither team was able to score which sent the game into overtime. At 2:43 of the extra frame Reid Jackson found Andrew Johnson in the neutral zone, Johnson was hauled down by the Broncos defencemen while cutting towards to the net which resulted in a penalty shot. The 18 year old made good on the opportunity, sending the crowd into a frenzy with the game winner.
Moose Jaw outshot the Broncos 38-26 and went 3-for-9 on the power play and 3-for-3 on the penalty kill. The two teams will hook up again Saturday night in Swift Current; Voice of the Warriors James Gallo has all the action on Country 100 starting with the Pre-Game Show at 6:40pm.
