The Warriors picked up their first win of the season in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
After a slow start in their home opener, the Edmonton Senior B Warriors rallied from behind to beat the Blackfalds Silverbacks 8-4 at the JRC on Saturday night (May 12).
 
The Silverbacks were able to jump out to multiple leads in the first two periods thanks to a hat trick from Eric Reierson.
 
"You've got to just shut that out of your mind and worry about the next one. I think we did a great job of bouncing back and not letting those goals get us down," said Warriors goaltender Lee Jackman.
 
Jackman was perfect in the second half of the game, shutting the door on a handful of penalty kill opportunities, including a four-minute 5-on-3.
 
The Warriors struggled with penalty problems all night, taking 24 minutes worth.
 
In the third period, Brett Reyner carried the offence, with a natural hat trick, to lead the red army to an 8-4 win.
 
"I think that the slow start on offence can be attributed to feeling a little shaky on offence and not running to our spots with full commitment or awareness. Once we turned that up, we had no problem," added Jackman.
 
Tyler Sonnichson, Jordan Wheaton, Greg Bourret (x2) and Tanner Tasse all found the back of the net for the Warriors.
 
It's a short turn-around for Edmonton (1-1) as they'll play their third game in nine days when they head to Beaumont to take on the Outlaws (2-1) on Wednesday (May 16).
