The Aviators scalped the hated Warriors at Floyd Bennett Field on Sunday, crushing the awkward Akwesasne skaters 5-2.

Brooklyn scored two unanswered goals in the first, giving fans filling the Aviator Sports and Events Center reason for hope going into the second — an exciting change of pace, considering that the Aviators crashed and burned on both Friday and Saturday.

The weakling Warriors scored a goal in the second — despite racking up six penalties — but Brooklyn’s boys of winter were still on top heading into the final round.

The last period was a welcome sight for Brooklyn fans: the Aviators took charge — scoring three to the Warriors one — and inciting so much frustration in their opponents that Warrior Patrick Deraspe picked a fight with Aviator center Jesse Felten and incurred two penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct, bringing the Warriors’ time in the box to a classless 86 minutes.

The Aviators fell to the Warriors last season in the playoffs, but have gotten some much deserved payback this season, with a 2-0 record against their Canadian Rivals.

The Brooklyn Aviators be away this weekend, but will return home right before Christmas to battle the Cape Cod Bluefins at the Aviators Sports Center [3159 Flatbush Ave. in Floyd Bennett Field in Marine Park, (718) 758-7580] Dec. 22 at 7:35 pm. Tickets $12 ($10 for seniors and children under 14) For information, visit
