The goals were flowing at the JRC on Sunday afternoon (Jul.8).
 
Needing a win to clinch a playoff spot, the Edmonton Senior B Warriors easily handled the Calgary Raiders, 17-4. 
 
The Warriors had nine different goal scorers in the victory including Sam Dalk, who had buried his first in the Fort.
 
"We did a good job of taking advantage of our opportunities when they were there. I thought we played really smart down the stretch," said Dalk.
 
Edmonton's power play was firing at 75 per cent in the matinée, Jordan Wheaton had two of his four goals with the man advantage. Jon McMillan picked up the win in net.
 
The win moves the Warriors to 9-1-5 on the season.
 
Last season, Fort Saskatchewan didn't host any of the home playoff games, so the Warriors played out of the Go Auto Arena in St Albert.
 
"It's always nice to see familiar faces in the crowd. Hopefully we can get a bit of a buzz going in the community and draw a bit of a crowd to the JRC, because every time it's full in here it makes it that much more fun," added Dalk.
 
Dates are still to be determined for the playoffs, as are the final standings.
 
The red army starts a three game road trip this weekend with games against (16-0-1) St Albert, (11-0-5) Rockyview and the (9-0-6) Calgary Mountaineers.
