The Regina Pats have accomplished one of what they hope is four championships before the junior hockey season ends.
Regina ended a nine-game Moose Jaw Warriors win streak in front of a sold-out Brandt Centre Friday night as they downed Moose Jaw 5-0 to clinch the Eastern Division.
Adam Brooks’ 37th goal of the year 11:44 into the first period was all Regina needed as they improved their record to 47-12-7-1.
Sam Steel had a pair of goals for the winners to give him 48 on the season while Tyler Brown stopped 27 shots to record his 5th shutout of the season.
The two teams will go at it again at Mosaic Place Saturday night in a 7 o’clock start with 620 CKRM’s pre-game show starting at 6:35.
