Novice Jets compete in Vernon

The Summerland Jets Novice 1 team attended the Vernon Freeze Out Tournament this past weekend.

The Summerland Jets Novice 1 team attended the Vernon Freeze Out Tournament this past weekend.

All games were close in score and the team walked away with medals and a lot of kids with big smiles at the end of a fun packed weekend.

Highlights included goals scored by Ethan Dunley-Owen, Tegan Schuhmacher, Branden Tutkaluk, and Russell Weatherhead with a shutout in the last game by goaltender, Denton Manders.

The team watched in awe when Dunley-Owen scored a hat trick in the final game against the Kelowna Warriors all within 1:18.

The team worked well together with lots of fast skating forwards (Dunley-Owen, Sadie Montgomery, Lauren Rogall, Schuhmacher, Ben Hrncirik, Michael Strangman, Kieran Keilty), strong defensive moves (Simon Cecconi, Weatherhead, Jonah Montgomery, Carson Hoey), excellent passing by all, and goaltenders (Dane Bilenki, Manders and Tutkaluk) holding a solid line in net.

A true team effort by all.
