The Morinville Jets returned from a mid-week road trip Wednesday night with a 6-2 victory over the Edmonton Mustangs. Wednesday night’s win adds another two points to the club’s successful season.
Eighteen games in finds the Jets with a 10-4-4 record and a second place seating in the Capital Junior Hockey League’s West Division.
Adding to the success, the Jets have two players in the league’s top 10: Tyler Hagel in the second spot with 40 points and Brett Duboc in the seventh slot with 27 points.
Wednesday night’s win was built heavily in the final frame. Tied 1-1 at the end of the first, the Jets built to a 3-2 second-period finish before packing on another three while corraling the Mustangs completely in the third.
