The Moose Jaw Bantam Tier II Warriors had a trophy to declare when they came back from Minot, N.D. recently.
The Warriors finished in second at the Minot Bantam Border Cup in Minot after they lost the final in a shootout to the Williston (N.D.) Coyotes.
A big and fast Coyotes team had cruised through their side of the draw unbeaten. The Warriors were able to frustrate them and the game finished 0-0 after regulation time. The teams played five minutes of four-on-four hockey in overtime, though the Warriors spent two minutes of that killing off a Coyotes’ power play.
The Coyotes scored the only goal of the shootout.
The Warriors opened the tournament with a 3-1win over the Minot Wolves. In their final group game, the Warriors scored with 27 seconds left to beat the Regina Ducks 3-2 to advance to the final.
