Make it 27 wins in the last 29 regular season meetings for the Falher Pirates over the High Prairie Regals.
Brian Sommers scored a hat trick while seven other Pirates each scored once as the Pirates won 10-4 in High Prairie Nov. 15.
The Regals led 2-1 after one period but the Pirates asserted themselves in the second period by scoring seven unanswered goals to lead 8-2.
The teams split four third period goals.
Dallas Brochu, Darren Kramer, Dakota Mason, Jeff Chalifoux, Taylor Cote, Kevin Monfette and Rocky Collins added the other goals for the Pirates.
Damian Cardinal scored twice to lead the Regals while Jacob Anderson and Lawrence Anderson added the others.
The Regals led 2-1 after one period but the Pirates rallied including three goals in the last 1:18 of the period, two on the power play after Lawrence Anderson was assessed minor penalties for high-sticking and unsportsmanlike. A 5-2 lead quickly became 7-2 and it was over.
Lawrence Anderson was tossed early in the third period after receiving a double minor for slashing, which prompted the game ejection for three stick fouls.
The win halted a two-game losing streak in High Prairie for the Pirates, who had won the previous 12 straight.
