A commanding win keeps the Warriors chance at a home playoff spot alive.
The Edmonton Senior Warriors snapped their three game losing skid with a 13-3 win over the Beaumont Outlaws.
Offensively, the red army came into the game with something to prove, exploding for six goals in the first period.
A stingy defence and solid goaltending helped the Warriors run away with an 11-2 lead after 40 minutes.
"We were catching and passing really well, moving the ball quickly, it didn't stay on anybody's stick for too long and then we capitalized on our opportunities," said Simon Hanson.
The third period was a grind. The Outlaws didn't go down without a fight, but they could only muster one past goaltender Lee Jackman.
"It feels good as a team to come out and perform as a team instead of individuals and get the (win)," added Hanson.
Hanson had three goals and four assists in the game. Erik Turner added four goals and two assists.
With one more game left in the season, the Warriors can secure a home playoff spot with a win over the undefeated St Albert Miners.
They'll welcome them to the Jubilee Rec Centre Wednesday (July 12) at 8:30 p.m.
