Warriors take a 5 - 3 loss against Whitecourt on Friday December 13, 2013. The game was a tough battle with the Warriors with a short bench and Whitecourt with a full line up. Whitecourt is a big physical team and this took a toll on the Warriors in the 2nd. The Warriors had a strong start with a 2 goal lead after the first period. The 2nd is where the Warriors felt the effects of the big team and a short be4nch. The guys were a little tired and it showed as Whitecourt scored 4 goals in the 2nd while the Warriors were able to get 1 and after the second period Whitecourt was up 4 - 2. Whitecourt got another goal half way through the 3rd period and the Warriors answered back with a goal 3 seconds later, but could not get anymore as they pressed hard. "It was a hard fought game and we ran out of gas being short benched and took a few hits which made the difference tonight, said Coach Kuhar. Overall I think we had control of the game and played a very good system and maintain good puck possession. We had a couple of bounces that didn't result in a goal and we didn't get as many shots on net as we would have liked. Not disappointed at all. We ended the Christmas break with a 500 record and that is exactly where we wanted to be."
The Warriors have 6 games remaining in regular season 3 home games and 3 away games. The Warriors next Home game is Friday January 3, 2014 where they host Whitecourt Wild.
