The Valley Maple Leafs were looking to avenge their 3-2 shootout loss to the East Hants Penguins Feb. 8 and they more than accomplished that.

The Leafs came out strong and dominated the away game, spanking the Penguins 8-0.

Middleton's Colin Gillis started the scoring off for the Leafs in the first frame, followed by Jory Uhlman and Brandon Parker, each adding a goal.

Gillis potted two more goals in the second period, with Mt. Uniacke's Jake Galbraith slipping one in-between them.

Affiliated player Greg Brown, in his first game with the Leafs, got on the scoreboard early in the third period to make the score 7-0. Windsor's Mark Swain then wrapped it up for the Valley squad with 9:04 remaining in the game.

Assists went to team captain Nathan Little (2), Nick MacKenzie (2) and Adriano Digioacchino, David Hayes, Austin Himmelman, Jeff Longaphy, Alex Seyforth, Andrew Squires, Luke Short, Parker, Swain, and Uhlman.

Alex Mader picked up the win in nets for the Maple Leafs, stopping all 24 shots.

The Leafs have two games remaining in regulation play. This Friday, Feb. 15, they will be travelling to the Dr. Carson & Marion Murray Community Centre for a bout with the Cumberland County Blues, who are currently in last place in the Sid Rowe Division. On Saturday, they return to Kentville to take on the Brookfield Elks at 7:30 p.m. Heading into the final week of regular season play in the Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League, the Leafs are in third place in the Fred Fox Division.
