Tanner Eberle's two goals lead Moose Jaw Warriors past Regina Pats 4-3

REGINA - Tanner Eberle scored twice to help the Moose Jaw Warriors beat the Regina Pats 4-3 on Thursday in the Western Hockey League.

Eberle, a Regina product and second cousin of Edmonton Oilers superstar Jordan Eberle, scored both his goals at the end of the second to give the Warriors a 2-0 lead heading into the third period.

Colton McCarthy and Travis Brown also scored for Moose Jaw (13-17-7).

Chandler Stephenson scored twice for Regina (13-21-4). Morgan Klimchuk has a goal as well, while Lane Scheidl helped out with two assists for the Pats.

Thirty seconds into the third Brown added to Moose Jaw's lead to make it 3-0.

Regina then battled back with two goals from Stephenson and one from Klimchuk with goalie Matt Hewitt pulled and just 27 seconds on the clock.

McCarthy’s power-play goal proved to be the eventual winner.

Justin Paulic made 26 saves for the win. Hewitt turned away 21 shots.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
