Morinville – Sunday night brought home another big win for the Morinville Jets, their second consecutive victory over the league-leading Spruce Grove Regals. Sunday night’s home-ice effort was a 5-2 victory for the Jets and kicked off their post-Christmas return to ice in a strong way.
The Jets ended the opening frame tied 2-2 with the Regals, advanced their tally to 3-2 by the end of the second, and completed the game 5-3. The last four minutes of that final period were shorthanded ones for the Jets.
The victory brings the Jets to a 14-11-0 record this season.
The club has the opportunity to notch out another two points Tuesday night when they take on the Fort Saskatchewan Pyramid Hawks in a home game at the Ray McDonald Sports Centre. Game time is 8:30 p.m.
The Jets have a second home game this week, a 6:45 p.m. match up against the Red Wings Sunday night.
