Morinville – After a disappointing 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Edmonton Royals Friday night, a game that put the best-of-seven semi-final series at a game apiece, the Jets pulled off a 4-2 home-ice victory over the Royals Sunday night to put the series 2-1 in the Jets’ favour.

Friday night’s road game was a game the Jets seemed to stop playing after the first period. Up 2-0 at the end of the opening frame, the Jets fell 5-2 by game’s end, never regaining the strength they had in the opening frame.

Sunday night’s home-ice contest was a different story altogether, and a game in which the Jets carried the lead through three frames. The Jets ended the first period 1-0 and built their lead to 3-1 by the end of the middle frame. With a goal apiece in the final period, the Jets carried the day with a 4-2 victory. The Royals’ third-period contribution was scored on a two-man advantage.

The series travels to the Bill Hunter Arena Wednesday night for game 4 in the series. The series returns to Morinville Friday night. Game time is 8:30 at the Ray McDonald Sports Centre.
