As the clocked ticked down the Raiders pressed for the equalizer, their best opportunity came in the final minute when Warriors centre Jordan Wyton took a closing hand of the puck penalty. Prince Albert pulled their goalie for a 6-on-4 advantage, Moose Jaw held their ground and fought off the Raiders and came away with the 3-2 win.
