Jesse Parker scored the go ahead goal on the power play at 15:05 of the opening period, beating Warriors’ netminder Brock Novak.

Brandon Elliott found the back of the net quickly to open the second period. Just over a minute into the middle frame Elliot scored the equalizer at 1:25 with help of Roger Sherwood and Myles Falasca. Jordan Bailey would put the Metors on top at 7:28 before Luke Nogard made up for his earlier costly penalty by scoring the equalizer for the Warriors just a minute later. Max Lindsay, who picked up an assist on the Nogard goal, scored the go ahead goal for the Warriors at 15:38 of the second period.

Late in the closing period the Meteors once again tied the game. Denis Creighton scored the tying goal at 13:56. With the end of regulation looming Myles Falasca scored the game winner for the Warriors. Mike Casale also scored his second of the game right as the siren sounded to end the game.

Both Roger Sherwood and Max Lindsay came away with three points on the night. Sherwood had three assists while Lindsay scored one goal and two assists, season highs for both.

With the important victory the Warriors pick up two points and extended their lead over Fort Erie in the standings to four points. Next up the Warriors travel to Thorold to take on the Blackhawks. Game time is Thursday night at 7:07pm from Thorold Community Arena.
