Jets Roar to Championship

The Pacific Jets had a successful visit to Vancouver for the Mainland Cup

The 2002 Pacific Jets have taken off.

The team, featuring players born in 2002, travelled to Vancouver for the Mainland Cup April 11-12 and left with the hardware.

“This is the fifth year I’ve been to this tournament,” said Coach Marty Gage.

This year’s event was excellent, said Gage, “because all six teams in our division were all closely matched.”

The Pacific Jets went two wins, one loss and a tie through the round robin portion of the tournament. Their loss was to the Okanagan All Stars who the Jets met in the finals.

“They beat us 5-3 in the round robin and we beat them 4-1 in the finals,” said Gage.

“After our loss in our second game, we regrouped and used it as motivation to positively bring the team to the next level of competitive- ness; it worked!

“We went on to defeat two undefeated teams in our last two games.”

The Jets are in Edmonton this weekend.
