Midget reps host tourney

The Game Time Sports Midget Rep Jets hosted a tournament recently with teams from around the province and Washington.

The Game Time Sports Midget Rep Jets hosted a tournament on Oct. 19 to 21 with teams from around the province and Washington.

In the first game the Jets took on Chilliwack. After two periods the score was tied at 2, but then some undisciplined play resulted in 4 unanswered goals for a 6-2 loss.

In game two the Jets faced the Tri Cities Americans and skated to a handy 7-3 win, with Liam McLuskey accounting for five of the seven goals.

This set up the final round robin game against Spokane and the Jets needed a win to get to the semi-finals. It was a back and forth game that saw the Jets leading 2-0 part way through the second when Spokane scored 2 quick goals to tie it up.

Then the Jets were awarded a penalty shot and took a 3-2 lead. Shortly after though Spokane tied it up and then was awarded a penalty shot and took a 4-3 lead into the dying seconds of the game.

Then with the net empty and six seconds left on the clock the Jets faced off in the Spokane end and were able to net the tying goal with 2 seconds left.

Unfortunately Spokane advanced to the semi-finals based on their goals for/against. The Jets then played Abbotsford to finish the tournament but were beaten 4-3. The final saw Langley face off against Spokane with Langley skating to a 6-0 win to earn the championship trophy. The Jets would like to thank Tight Lines Contracting for sponsoring the tournament along with all the other businesses that donated prizes.

Point totals for the tournament were: Liam McLuskey, nine goals and three assists; Jacob Lusted, three goals and five assists; Brandon Gerlach, one goal and four assists; Jordy Johnson, one goal and two assists, Seth Morgan, one goal and one assist; Austin Warkentin, one goal; Dakota Deane, three assists; Evan Sorenson, three assists; Aiden McLuskey, two assists; Josef Zagrodney, two assists; Linden Gove, one assist; Dawson Jenner, one assist.
