Fort Sask. proved they are a legitimate contender with a full lineup.
Tuesday night (November 28), the Fort Saskatchewan Senior AAA Chiefs welcomed the Stony Plain Eagles to town and stumped their high scoring offence.
Stony would get on the board first as Nelson Gadoury finished off a two on one feed with 5:26 left to go in the second period. 
The Chiefs would reply less than a minute after as Darren Reid potted his first of the season. 
"Fort and Stony have had a rivalry going on for a few years now," said forward Matt Herder. "Everybody comes to play and shows up for these games."
Herder was the hero of the night, as he gave the Fort a 2-1 lead half way through the third, after he buried the rebound on Jordan Wood's drive.
"I've got two really fast linemates here so I just try to get them the puck in the neutral zone," added Herder. "We've been able to create a lot off the rush here in the past couple of games."
Devon Fordyce made 41 saves during the game, as the Chiefs held on for a 2-1 win. A team effort was spotlighted by the penalty kill unit, who killed off all five Eagles chances.
Next up for the Fort will be the Lacombe Generals on Sunday (December 3), in Lacombe.
