It’s a perfect start for the Warriors in the Fort.
The Edmonton Senior B Warriors offence came alive in the second period in a 8-5 win over the Beaumont Outlaws on Wednesday (Jun.6).
“A lot of our defensive pressure worked really well on them and they couldn't handle it,” said Warriors' Dean Woywitka. "Johnny (McMillan) stood on his head and stopped a lot of shots."
Tied 2-2 after the first period, Edmonton fired five past Beaumont netminder Scott Kavalinas in the second.
Six different goal scorers found the back of the net for the Warriors including Simon Hansen (x3), Greg Bourret, Jordan Wheaton, Joe Fowler, Tanner Tasse and Cam Ellingson.
“We were moving the ball well and following the plays we practice,” said Hansen. "Coach harps on us to do them in games and we finally are starting to do them and they were going in."
Tonight was the start of an eight game homestand at the JRC for the Warriors. On Sunday (Jun.10), the (5-2-1) Warriors will welcome Blackfalds to Fort Saskatchewan. Faceoff against the Silverbacks is at 2:30 p.m.
