Junior Brendon Closs scored four goals Saturday night to lead Shaker/Colonie to a 5-2 victory over Glens Falls/Hudson Falls/South Glens Falls in a Capital District High School Hockey league game.

Closs scored a natural hat trick, getting his first goal at 11:34 of the first period and then scoring the first two goals of the second as the Jets improved to 3-3 in the league and 4-2 overall.

Closs has eight goals and 18 points this season, already surpassing last year’s total of six goals and 16 points.
