Morinville Jets

The Morinville Junior B Jets hit the road for two games this past week, taking both contests by a point. The Jets defeated the Spruce Grove Regals 4-3 on Friday night and beat the Edmonton Mustangs 5-4 on Sunday night.

The four points for the two wins bring the Jets to a 14-5-1 record and third place in the Capital Junior Hockey League’s West Division.

Friday’s game against the Regals saw the Jets leading the Regals tied 2-1 after one and pulling ahead to 3-1 in the middle frame. Spruce Grove would narrow that by one early in the final period, a goal answered shortly after by the Jets. Although the Regals narrowed the gap to 4-3 with nine minutes left, they couldn’t bring the closing half of the frame to produce the result they wanted.

Sunday’s contest details were not available by our morning deadline.

The Jets play the Stong Plain Flyers on the road Wednesday night and 8 p.m. and return home to the Landrex Arena on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. to face the Sherwood Park Knights.
