The St. Adolphe Hawks continued their stellar play this season as they crushed the Steinbach Huskies 8-2 in Hanover Tache Junior Hockey League action Sunday night in Steinbach.

St. Adolphe leads the loop with a 5-0-0-1 record while the Huskies are last, as they fall to 0-6-1-0.

Eric Lebrun and Curtis Metzler, the two leading scorers in the HTJHL, paced the Hawks with five points each, as Metzler had three goals and two assists and Lebrun netted a pair and set up three more.

Lebrun now has 19 points in six games, two up on Metzler. They also lead the league with eight goals each.

Close through 40 minutes, the Hawks scored five unansered goals in the third. St Adolphe took a 3-0 lead in the first but the Huskies narrowed the gap to 3-2 second on goals by Graham Cruise and Alex Major.

Another big game Sunday night at Oakbank saw the defending champion Springfield Xtreme hand the Red River Mudbugs their first defeat of the season in a 6-4 final. Both teams are now tied for second with 4-1 records.

Other weekend results saw Mitchell defeat Steinbach 4-1 and Springfield outscored Mitchell 3-1.

HTJHL play resumes Thursday night in Mitchell as the Mohawks host the Lorette Comets at 8:00 p.m.
