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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
