Moose Jaw Warriors win first WHL championship in 40-year franchise history

The Moose Jaw Warriors made history on Wednesday night by winning the team's first-ever Western Hockey League (WHL) championship.

Moose Jaw clinched the title with a 4-2 victory over the Portland Winterhawks to complete the series sweep in front of a sold-out home crowd.

Moose Jaw had only made it to the WHL Championship Series once in its 40 year history prior to this season. The Warriors got swept by the Vancouver Giants in 2006.
