Just one day after the SRSS Sabres scored an emotional 5-4 overtime victory over the St. Paul's Crusaders, the Sabres kept it going Thursday in Winnipeg as they won their incredible 14th straight game with a convincing 7-2 victory over the Glenlawn Lions.

The Sabres, at least temporarily have moved into a first place tie with the Crusaders.

SRSS was led Hayden Hildebrand and Parker Janz, who each notched a pair of goals. Adding singles for the Sabres were Eric Adams, Tyler Bueckert and Brycen Wiebe.

The Sabres (18-5-0) and Crusaders (18-3-1) are now tied with 52 points atop the Winnipeg High School Hockey League's Winnipeg Free Press Division #1. However, the Crusaders have two games remaining in the regular season and the Sabres only one. The Sabres have already won the season series over the Crusaders.

Regardless, with yesterday's win, the Sabres have clinched at least second place in the division and a first round bye in the playoffs.

The Sabres will close out the regular season next Wednesday (Feb. 15) at Ile des Chenes as they will face Gabrielle Roy at 4:15 p.m.
