Midget Rep Jets lose in Game 1

The Summerland Midget Rep Jets lost a 5-0 contest to top seed South Okanagan in Osoyoos on Feb. 9.

The Summerland Midget Rep Jets, sponsored By Nester’s Market, could not rebound from a slow start as they lost a 5-0 contest to top seed South Okanagan in Osoyoos on Feb. 9.

On the previous weekend, the Jets overcame two slow starts against the Sicamous Eagles to sweep that series two games to none.

The Jets entered the game with only four defensemen and lost another, Dawson Jenner, early in the first period.

This forced coach Cal Johnson to move productive centre Linden Gove to the back end for the remainder the game.

South Okanagan scored three power play goals in a short span and finished the first period up 4-0.

The second period was fairly even with South Okanagan getting the only marker while on a five on three power play.

By the third period the Jets looked like themselves, but it was too little too late and are now heading home this Saturday facing elimination for the first time in the playoffs.

Johnson is confident that if the boys play a disciplined game and jump quickly on loose pucks that they can win their home contest and force a third and deciding game in Osoyoos on Sunday.

Game time is 3:15 p.m. this Saturday at the Summerland Arena.
