Peewee Boys’ Jets off to the semi-finals

February 24, 2016

Saturday, Feb. 20 the Vito’s Pizzeria Peewee Boys’ Jets brought back the fourth game of the quarter finals to their home ice taking on the Baltimore Ice Dogs. The Jets came out flying in the first period with an early backhander from Colson Jenkins assisted by Keegan Anderson. This duo wasn’t finished with Baltimore yet putting in another goal two minutes later also assisted by defence Jonathon Young. You could see the frustration in the Dogs’ eyes from the stands, their big defenceman wound up from the blue line putting one in past Phillip Cannon in net. With two minutes left on the clock Owen Fergusson puts in the third goal for this period assisted by defence Connor Sobry and Jonathon Young. The Jets go into the second with a two-goal lead.
Gavin Plunkett fires up the team with an early sniper shot straight past the Baltimore goalie assisted by Desi Davies and Colson West in the first two minutes of the period. You can feel the excitement in the stands as we watch Owen Fergusson flying up the ice flinging it past the Dogs, helped out by Cody Switzer and Ryker Huygens. With 41 seconds left in the period Winger Gavin Plunkett winds up from the blue line putting in the slapshot of a lifetime unassisted. Phillip Cannon was a force in net stopping one impressive shot after another; the Dogs didn’t have a chance. Bancroft goes into period three with a five-goal lead over Baltimore.
Things started to get physical in the third but the Jets hold their own, playing “smart” hockey. “Hat Trick” Jenkins rifles in his third goal for the game early in the period assisted by Keegan Anderson and Jonathon Young giving us a significant lead. Things are looking great for the Peewee Jets! A Bancroft penalty with 1:25 left in the game gives the Ice Dogs the advantage, allowing them to put in the final goal of the game. The Jets take the quarterfinals with a final score of 7-2.
The Peewee Jets proceed onto the semi-finals against Wasaga Beach; schedule yet to be determined.
