The Morinville Jets took their fourth consecutive win at home on Sunday night with a 9-2 win over the 11-20-4 Stony Plain Flyers.

The Jets were strong out of the gate, securing a 5-1 lead after one with goals from Cade Van Brabant, Jacob Klassen, Cody Laliberte, Graeme Hampton, and Nash Knowlton.

Braydin Maio, Hampton, and Knowlton each contributed a goal each to widen the Jets’ lead to 8-1 after two. 

The final frame saw both sides pocket one, the Flyers midway through the period and The Jets’ Laliberte with 4:12 left on the clock to make it 9-2.

Sunday’s win brings the Jets to a 25-6-1 record with six games left in the regular season, 10 points ahead of the third-place North Edmonton Red Wings.
