The Trail Commercial Hockey League leading Re/Max bounced back from a 7-3 loss to the Allstars a week ago, to win a pair of games on the weekend.
The realtors squeezed out a 3-2 win over Firebird last Thursday, before exacting a measure of revenge on an undermanned Allstar squad Sunday with a 10-4 drubbing.
Former Trail Smoke Eater puck-stopper Paul Barclay has traded in his pads for a little stick-handling wizardry, as he netted a hat trick and two assists to lead Re/Max to its ninth win of the season.
Jason Vecchio and Luke Russell also pitched in with four-point games, and Rick Golding’s two goals helped Re/Max to a 4-1 first period lead.
With only seven players in the lineup, Allstars’ goalie Tim Wiley was at the mercy of a relentless Re/Max attack, as the team pumped in another five second-period goals.
Jim Maniago scored twice and added an assist for the Allstar cause.
In other action, Firebird’s Mike Kooznetsoff earned the shut out in a 2-0 win over Arlington Saturday.
Matt Langille and Craig Clare fed each other, netting a goal and an assist apiece to pace the Birds to its third win of the season.
The Allstars also beat OK Tire 4-1 last week to move within four points of the second-place Tire.
Re/Max currently sits atop the league with a 9-5 record, followed by the Tire at 6-3-3.
