Pee Wee Jets win season opener

Summerland Pee Wee Jets minor hockey Penticton ice puck score

Summerland Pee Wee Jets started league action with a home game against Penticton 1 Oct. 8.

Working like a team that had been playing together much longer than just the past few weeks, the Jets moved the puck around the front of the opponents’ net to skate away with a decisive 9-5 victory.

The Jets were ahead 3-1 at the end of the first period.

Teagan Trewhit scored the first and third goals of the period, with Kade Kozak netting the middle, off an assist from J.J. Henderson.

Kozak scored less than two minutes into the second period assisted by Sidney Sandrelli.

At the halfway mark, Henderson scored with assists from Kozak and Remy Houde. Penticton scored three times for a 5-5 tie to end the period.

The first half of the third period was scoreless, and then Kozak put one past the Penticton net minder with assists from Will Gray and Sandrelli.

He popped in another on his next shift, assisted by Houde and Henderson. The Jets cinched the win with two more markers, one from Sandrelli, assisted by Trewhit, and the other by Henderson assisted by Houde. Penticton rallied with one more goal in the last 2.5 minutes of play.

The Jets’ net-minding victory was shared between Tyson Harrington and Austin Bubar, aided by Carter Tower, Bailey Johnson, Declan Riddle and Alexandros Tsoycalas on defence.
