The Summerland Midget Rep Jets placed third in a tournament at Osoyoos the weekend of Nov. 18 to 20.

The Jets started off the round robin portion of the tournament with a convincing 7-2 pounding of the Castlegar Rebels. The Jets dominated the game from start to finish behind the solid goaltending of 15-year-old rookie Tyler Lemke.

In game two on Saturday morning, the Jets battled hard to tie the score at 2-2 with the Nelson Leafs at the end of two periods, but a steady parade to the penalty box led to six straight goals in the third by the Leafs as they handed Summerland a disappointing 8-2 defeat in a game that was much closer than the score indicated.

The Jets rebounded on Saturday afternoon and managed a 3-3 tie with the North Vancouver Storm. Liam McLusky scored all three goals for the Jets, who held a significant edge in play for much of the game.

In Sunday’s playoff game the second place finishers in both pools met to decide third place in the eight-team tournament. This pitted the Jets against East Wenatchee.

The Jets played a disciplined game and jumped into an early lead when newly-converted centre Kyler Lefebvre scored two quick first period goals and the Jets never looked back. Veteran Kieran Reger added a pair of goals and Cole Marchant picked up the shutout as the Jets skated to a 5-0 victory.

Coaches Cal Johnson and Dave Sandrelli said they were pleased with the efforts of the entire squad.
