1 win, 1 tie, 1 loss for Jets #1

Novice #1 team gets one, one and one in recent play.

The Summerland Jets Novice #1 team has played three games in the last couple of weeks.

Their first match up was against the Penticton Blue team. The first goal, scored by Jack Poznikoff, was a stunner and set the pace for the rest of the game.

Nash Bilenki went on to score a hat trick with two unassisted goals and one assisted by Patrick Geertz. Patrick Geertz added a goal (assisted by John Shaw) to the make the final score 5-1 for the Jets.

Max Havers was tremendous in net.

The play of Conner Keehn, Holden Girard and Gavin Lodermeir was outstanding.

The following day the Novice #1 team faced off against the highly skilled Novice #3 team in a nail-biting game filled with ups and downs.

Novice #3 came out flying but Novice #1 never gave up. They were able to claw their way back every time their opponent took the lead.

Patrick Geertz played an integral role in keeping Novice #1 in the game with his three goals and one assist.

Nash Bilenki was able to put two past their goaltender and assisted on an amazing goal from Morgan Gove.

Jack Poznikoff found the back of the net as well with an outstanding goal in the third period.

Tyler Algar did a terrific job in net and Matthew Lowery, as always, played a skilled defensive game.

The final result was a tie of 6-6 which is a great result when two Summerland teams go head to head.

The final game saw the Jets up against a visiting team from Winfield.

The Jets were able to match their opponent goal for goal right until the end when Winfield took the lead 4-3 and the Jets were unable to tie it up.  It was not, however, because of a lack of effort from the Jets, who had two goals from Patrick Geertz and one goal from Nash Bilenki.

The Jets goaltender, Finn Alexander, did all he could to try to give the Jets the win.

This game saw remarkable effort from Brett Cerutti, Leigha Herman and Dylan Low.  The Summerland Jets Novice #1 are sponsored by Tim Hortons.
