Kamloops rolled into Summerland for their last league meeting of the season on Saturday, Dec. 20 and the Jets last game before the Christmas break.

All three previous games had gone in Kamloops’ favour.

After beating Kamloops recently at a tournament in Revelstoke the Jets were ready to play.

They came out flying and controlled the play despite being down three regular players.

Kamloops scored a power play goal just before the ice clean, so the Jets headed to the dressing room down 0-1.

They held Kamloops for the rest of the second period and then the third period was owned by the Jets.

Jacob Acheson led the way with assists from Darren Keilty and Mereno Coco. Liam Trewhitt tipped the score in Summerland’s favour unassisted. Mitchell Gove scored a third period hat trick, first assisted by Ty Sideroff, then unassisted, and finally with assist to Jacob Acheson.

The Jets are off now until Jan. 4, when they head to Kelowna for their next league game.

The following weekend, it is the SMHA Bantam Rep Winter Classic Jan. 9 to 11, with teams from Everett, Lower Mainland and the Okanagan joining the tournament.
