Tough week for the peewee Jets

December 28, 2015

The Vito’s Pizzeria Peewee Jets hopped on the bus Dec. 14 for a Monday night game in Marmora versus the first place team Centre Hastings. The game didn’t start out as planned when goalie Phillip Cannon took a tripping penalty in the first three minutes of the game, with another player serving his time, Philly remained solid in net. The Jets killed it off keeping most of the play in the Grizzlies’ end. With two minutes left in the first period Centre Hastings manages to squeeze one past Cannon short-handed. Winger Gavin Plunkett pops one in the net right at the buzzer it was declared a “no goal!” Bancroft starts the second period a goal behind.

The second period was full of scoring opportunities but the Jets weren’t able to capitalize on them. With three minutes left in the period the Grizzlies put in their second goal of the game. Centre Hastings manages to get it into our end from the face off, Philly somehow loses his stick, the Grizzlies start firing, luckily defence Connor Sobry jumped in the net swiping out the puck, stopping the first shot, Cannon was ready for the rebound doing an effortless “glove save” for the second.

Centre Desi Davies puts in Bancroft’s only goal of the game with a swift skate up the ice and a wrist shot unassisted.

Final score 2-1 for Centre Hastings.

Thursday night we were back on the bus headed to Ennismore for a late evening game. The first period turned out to be action-packed. The Eagles light up the scoreboard first; slipping one past Ben Landry in net but the Jets answer right back with a goal from Owen Fergusson assisted by Colson Jenkins and Trevor McDowell. The Eagles come back at us again two minutes later putting in their second and last goal for this period. Bancroft tests out the Ennismore goalie again with a shot in their net from Keegan Anderson assisted by Desi Davies and Colson Jenkins. It is tied 2-2 going into the third

The Eagles were determined in the second period putting in an early goal, Colson West ties it up for us with a one-timer assisted by Ryker Huygens. The Eagles put in two more goals in this period. The third period saw both goalies at their best with a shutout for both. Final score 5-3 for Ennismore.

Saturday evening Ennismore made the journey to Bancroft for a re-match on our home ice. The second period of this game started out with nothing on the scoreboard for either team, but that was about to change! Ennismore puts in two early goals in this period testing Phillip Cannon in net. Colson Jenkins finally puts us on the Board assisted by Desi Davies and Keegan Anderson. Jenkins lights it up again with another goal assisted by Owen Fergusson with 32 seconds on the clock, but Ennismore came back right away with another goal.

Bancroft started the scoring in the third period with an early goal by Desi Davies, assisted by Gavin Plunkett. Unfortunately Ennsimore pulled off another goal, making the final score of this game 4-3 for them.
