Jets soar through the weekend

March 9, 2016

The Leveque Brother/Rock Breaker Peewee Girl Jets continued to dominate the ice over the weekend. Saturday afternoon the Jets played in Bancroft taking on the Cold Creek Comets. The first Jets goal came from Hannah McMann mid way thru the first period, assists going to Peyton Armstrong and Emma Tidey. 
A series of battles and races formed during the second period, making the girls push hard to the net. 
Olivia Villamere added a second goal to the game after Tidey passed her the puck through the Cold Creek players. 
Taking control of the puck, the Leveque Brother/Rock Breaker Jets headed into the third period wanting to clinch the win.  Beth Brownlee wasted no time sniping one in past the goaltender unassisted.
Tidey followed the lead with two more goals, one unassisted and one with assists going to Ryan Rupnow and Villamere. 
The Jets celebrated a 5-0 win with pride. Early Sunday morning, the team was on the ice in Ennismore. 
The Ennismore Eagles came out strong and with shots on net.
Courtney Semach stood tall with glove and kick saves denying any opportunities of goals. 
“Boom Boom” Tidey rushed the puck end to end, picking up her second unassisted goal of the weekend putting the Jets on the board.
Second period action seen shots on both goaltenders, but no ticks on the scoresheet. When the third period started, the “hound line” played with exhilarating sportsmanship.
Charity Trotter banked a beauty in, assists went to Jaylin Frost and Emma Neuman.
Nearing the end of the game, Brownlee ripped her second unassisted goal giving the Jets the win with a final score of 3-0. With the two wins, the Bancroft Jets have successfully clinched first place in their division for OWHA Provincials in April.
The Jets then headed back to Haliburton to go head to head against the Peterborough Ice Kats for Game 1 for their Playoff series. Inhaling confidence and exhaling doubt, the girls were prepared to win face offs and take possession of the puck.
Courtney Semach defended her crease intensely, but the Ice Kats were able to find the back of the net and get on the scoreboard in the first period.
Gaining control, Sterling Nesbitt and Beth Brownlee fed the puck ahead to Ava Smith who deked out around the opposition and gave the Jets a 1-1 tie. 
Third period was fought with intensity and excellent netminding from both teams, but as time ran out, the score remained as a tie. 
The Leveque Brother/Rock Breaker Bancroft Jets will finish out playdowns  Thursday March 10  in Peterborough, then regroup after March break for the last two games in playoffs against Peterborough.
