Four straight wins in early November have propelled the Summerland Jets Nesters Market midget rep team into a tie for second place in the Okanagan Mainline Tier 3 standings.

They have a 5-2 record on the season.

In Oliver on Nov. 1, Linden Gove scored for the Jets mid way through the third period to break a 2-2 deadlock against a strong South Okanagan team.

The Jets hung on to win the game 3-2. Chad Lemke and Kevin Greenwood each had a goal and an assist for the Jets, and Clayton Fenrich had two helpers.

The next day at home against Clearwater, Jets captain Seth Morgan scored two minutes into the game on a well executed give-and-go with Gabriel Girard.

There was no looking back as the Jets cruised to a 5-1 victory.

Captain Morgan added another goal and Cawston Tower also netted a pair.

The game featured two penalty shots – one for each team.

Girard deked the Clearwater goalie to score at one end while Jets goalie Pierre Holmes foiled the Clearwater attacker at the other end.

On Nov. 8, the Jets won 9-4 at home against Winfield.

Gove netted a pair while Morgan, Greenwood, Fenrich, Girard, Tower, Kade Kozak and Austin Warkentin also found their way onto the score sheet.

Tower also had three assists.

On Nov. 9, the Jets squeaked out a 1-0 away win against Kelowna in a tight checking affair.

Tower went top-shelf half way through the third period for the only goal of the game.

Goalie Jared Breitkreuz made 27 saves for the shutout.

The midget rep Jets next play a tournament in Kelowna Nov 21 to 23.

Their league schedule resumes with a home game on Nov 29 at 4:15 p.m. against another Kelowna team.
