Midgets reach semifinals in tournament

The Summerland Jets Nesters Market midget rep team made a strong showing in the Sam Hanon Memorial Hockey Tournament, Oct. 17 to 19.

The Summerland Jets Nesters Market midget rep team made a strong showing in the Sam Hanon Memorial Hockey Tournament, Oct. 17 to 19, bowing out 2-0 in the semi-finals to Semiahmoo (Surrey).

Semiahmoo won the tournament.

The Jets finished first in their pool after tying Castlegar 3-3 on Friday, and defeating Creston 6-2 and another Semiahmoo team 9-2 on Saturday.

In the Castlegar game, the Jets were trailing 3-1 with less 10 minutes to go when Gabriel Girard and Linden Gove found the back of the net.

Kevin Greenwood scored the first Summerland goal early in the third period.

On Saturday, Jets captain Seth Morgan had two hat tricks, netting three against both Creston and Semiahmoo.

Girard and Austin Warkentin also scored in both games, while Cory Berekoff notched his first goal in midget hockey against Creston with a blast from the high slot.

Greenwood, Chad Lemke and Clayton Fenrich rounded out the scoring in the Semiahmoo game.

The semi-final on Sunday was close with the turning point coming when Semiahmoo scored on a five-on-three power play near the end of the second period.

Jared Breitkreuz and Pierre Holmes shared Jets goaltending duties, combining for a 2.25 GAA over the four games.

The tournament is in memory of Sam Hanon, a Grade 12 defenceman who played for the Jets midget rep team when he passed away in 2007. Hanon was known for his strong character, good values, loyalty and above all, his infectious smile.

This year, Summerland hosted teams from Spokane, Aldergrove, Castlegar, Creston, Kelowna and two from Semiahmoo.

The Midget Rep Jets would like to thank the tournament officials, the parents who helped make the event a success, and especially their coaches, Daryl Jenner, Sam Austin, Doug Chadwick, Jordan McCallum, their trainer John Gove, and team manager Jodi Breitkreuz.
