The Senior Warriors will be playing at the JRC again this summer.
 
Back for a second season, the Warriors will look to build off a RMLL Senior B semi-final loss last year against Rocky View.
 
"I think we're looking pretty good going into the season," said forward Cam Ellingson. "We're kinda coming into the season with the mentality that we have to get hot off the blocks and fire on all cylinders."
 
The Warriors offence will be a key focus this season, as last year's leading scorer Erik Turner is off the Western Lacrosse Association's Coquitlam Adanacs.
 
Returning upfront alongside Ellingson will be Greg Bourret who had 30 goals and 30 assists last season, Jordan Wheaton who notched 51 points including multiple overtime winners and Simon Hansen who averaged just under two points per game.
 
On the backend, a strong defensive core of Chris Buskas, Nic Krywolt, Tanner Tasse, Matt Murphy and Riley Durston are all potential keys to shutting down the RMLL's finest snipers.
 
"Our defense is a really well-knit group, it's a lot of big bodies that can move real fast, they're just athletic," said Ellingson.
 
At the Aleš Hřebeský Memorial Tournament in April, the Warriors finished fourth in their international pre-season tune up.
 
The red army will hit the floor Monday (May 7) night in St Albert for their first regular season game. Saturday they return to the JRC.
 
"We're really excited to be back this year. We had a couple of games there with great fan turnout and it's always fun having people cheering for you in the stands," added Ellingson.
 
Face off against the Blackfalds Silverbacks is at 8 p.m.
