The Janesville Jets U-18 squad dropped a pair of decisions at the NAPHL Fall Showcase at Schwan Super Rinks and the Fogerty Center in Blaine, Minnesota Saturday.
After the opening game win against Minnesota Hockey Academy Mudbugs on Friday, the Jets fell to the Northstar Knights from Northstar Christian Academy in Alexandria, Minnesota 6-0 early Saturday morning, then traveled to Fogerty Arena Saturday night to face the Fairbanks Ice Dogs U-18 team, another team sponsored by a NAHL team, falling 3-1.
In the early game, the Jets surrendered two goals in each period and were only outshot 25-10. Against the Ice Dogs, Jets scored first, carrying a 1-0 lead out of the first period. The Ice Dogs grabbed control with a pair of middle period goals and clinched the win with a little under four minutes to go.
Trevor Slaght from Wisconsin Dells will join the U-18 Jets in its final game at the Showcase event Sunday at 3:15 p.m. against the Minnesota Magicians U-18 squad.
