Warriors run halted by Jets

by Stephen Dafoe

The Beverly Warriors were hoping to make it eight consecutive wins in a row, but their impressive winning streak was halted by the Morinville Jets 6-2 victory Wednesday night.

“Huge win,” an excited Jets’ President Brent Melville told Morinville News Wednesday night, adding Beverly’s seven-in-a-row run had them tied for first place. “[We were] missing top scorer Tyler Hagel and top D-man Dean Jones due to work and school. [It was a [huge win.]

Despite being down two top teammates, the Jets won Wednesday night’s effort handily.

The Jets held a 1-0 lead at the end of one but built their lead to 4-1 to end the second, the last two of the Jets tally capitalized on power play opportunities. Joshua Perrott and Brett Dubuc earned the club the two power play goals. The final frame was more of the same with the Jets pocketing another two to Beverly’s single goal, the Jets’ final shot into an empty net by Jordan Rooke.

Wednesday’s road win lifts the Jets to top slot in the CJHL’s West Division, one point, and one game ahead of the North Edmonton Red Wings, whom the Jets play on the road Nov. 30.

The Jets hope to maintain their Division dominance Sunday night at home when they face the 9-7-3 Stony Plain Flyers at 6:45 p.m.
