The Summerland Peewee Rep Jets took their travelling road show to Revelstoke and Kamloops this weekend.

The first game saw them show their road weariness by coming out flat, and falling behind early to the well rested Revelstoke team.

Although they battled hard, they were handed an 8-4 loss. Goals coming from birthday boy Moreno Coco with a pair, and Spencer Bitte also with two.

Assists went to Jason Scherban, Simon Paul, Logan Bubar, Coco and Bitte.

In Sunday’s match they came up against a hungry Kamloops squad in search of their first win of the season.

The Jets came out strong and found themselves with an early lead only to squander it late in the second period.

In the third period with less than a minute left in a 4-4 deadlock, head coach Blaine “Spike” Brennan, playing a hunch, put out a line consisting of rugged, hard-nosed winger Mitch Gove, paired with elusive playmaking centre Rylan Campbell and rookie Spencer Bitte.

In a mad scramble in front of the Kamloops net minder, the puck squirted to Bitte who snapped a shot past a bewildered goaltender for a thrilling 5-4 victory.

When asked about the goal Bitte said, “I just shot it and it went in.”

Also hitting the score sheet were Liam Trewhitt with two goals and a helper, Mitch Gove with a goal and an assist,Jason Scherban one goal and Rylan Campbell one assist.

The goaltending tandem of Andrew Rolston and Ben Bowyer split the games with Rolston picking up the win.
