Excitement for Games 3 and 4 of WHL Final at fever pitch after Moose Jaw wins Games 1 and 2 of championship series in Portland

MOOSEJAWTODAY.COM -- The Moose Jaw Warriors have received incredible fan support from start to finish in the Western Hockey League playoffs, and it was once again on display on Sunday afternoon.

Close to 500 fans gathered at the Moose Jaw Events Centre to cheer on the team as they arrived home from Portland, with the excitement only heightened by the fact the team came home with a two-games-to-none lead in the best-of-seven WHL Final.

Here is a look at what the Warriors saw as they drove down Manitoba Street and made their way to the arena.

And here’s video from the Warriors Booster Club of the team leaving the bus to a throng of cheering fans.

The Warriors took a 3-2 win over the Winterhawks in Game 1 of the series on Friday night and rolled to a 5-1 in Game 2, with the series now reverting to Moose Jaw for Games 3 and 4 on Tuesday and Wednesday night.

Game time is 8 p.m. for both contests, with limited standing room tickets remaining and a complete sellout assured for both nights. Check for availability
