After falling behind 3-0 after the first period, the Canes battled back to make it close on second period goals from Ty Nash and Jett Jones, but three first period Warriors goals, including a shorthanded marker from Thomas Tien 2:01 in, was enough to pace Moose Jaw to the win

Trevor Thurston, Jones, Logan Barlage, Nash and Justin Hall added the other Lethbridge goals.

Tanner Howe scored the Pats lone goal, opening the scoring at 14:19 of the first before the Canes posted six unanswered goals.

Hall added an assist for a two-point night.
