Jets break losing streak

After five straight losses, the Morinville Jets won one at home Sunday night with a 5-4 win over the Edmonton Mustangs.

Tied at one apiece, after one, the Jets found themselves trailing 2-1 after two and 3-2 after two. Two minutes into the final frame, the Jets were down 4-2, but that is where fate changed.

In a penalty-free period, the Jets showed discipline and a series of three goals from Josh Reagan, Connor Tuppala, and Zach Mcrae gave the Jets a one-goal lead and the win.

The Jets hit the road Friday to play the 8-4-0 Stony Plain Flyers and return home Sunday night to face the 8-3-1 North Edmonton Red Wings. Game time Sunday is 7:30 p.m. at the Landrex Arena.

Kings take winning streak to five straight

The Morinville Kings have dominated the North Central Hockey League in its opening month of the 2019-2020 season. Saturday night gave the Kings their fifth game and their fifth consecutive win.

First, Second and Third Stars of the game were all Morinville Kings: Thomas Brennan, Cole Cavell, and Ashton Pietersma.
