Mixed Results for the SW Jets
Posted November 7, 2022
The SW Jets had mixed results this past weekend. First up on Saturday the Jets travelled to Lorette where they faced the Snipers in a late evening match. The Jets came out strong and took the early lead in the first. Back-stopped by Derek Poirier the Jets came out in the second period but it was apparent they changed their style of play which led to the Jets getting themselves into penalty troubles. Late in the second period the Jets lost a veteran D-man to injury as a result of a body check gone wrong. Going into the third period the parade to the penalty box continued for the Jets which resulted in the Snipers putting up four on the board. The Jets managed to hold on and claim a 7-4 victory. The player of the game was Derek Poirier as a result of his stellar play that helped keep the score in favour of the Jets.
On Sunday the Jets, without their veteran D-man who could be out 4-6 weeks, hosted the Pembina Valley Flyers in Ste. Agathe in a battle of two undefeated teams. The Flyers came out physical but the first scoring opportunity came for the Jets who were not able to put it home. Shortly after that opportunity the Flyers were able to deflect one past Zaiden MacDonald-Horvath. The Jets had several prime chances to score put just couldn’t get it done. The theme of the penalty box parade from Saturday continued into Sunday with the Jets taking far too many trips to the box. Although the Flyers didn’t score any power play markers, it put the Jets on their heels and were unable to generate any scoring opportunities. In the end the Flyers found the back of the net four times to claim a 4-0 victory. The Jets player of the game was Noah Hudson who had a solid two way game for the Jets.
The SW Jets are back to work this week in preparation for a pair of home games next weekend against the Pembina Valley Rockets and Northern Knights.
