Janesville Jets swept by Wilderness
CLOQUET, Minn.—After Friday’s 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Wilderness, Janesville Jets head coach Joe Dibble said he hoped his team could carry its good performance from that game’s third period into Saturday’s rematch.
It didn’t take long for the Wilderness (9-2-3) to call that hope into question.
Michael Covach scored just 33 seconds into the game for Minnesota and set the tone for another two-goal victory, this one 4-2.
Despite the early concession, the Jets (5-7-1) responded well, answering with two first-period goals of their own from Zach Keryluk and Robin Hoglund.
Minnesota kept up the pressure in the second period, putting 12 shots on Brock Kautz’s goal. Jakob Romo eventually found the back of the net to tie the game, and Brett Heikkila scored midway through the period on a power play to give the Wilderness the lead for good.
Thomas Lindstrom, who scored twice Friday night for Minnesota, assisted on three of his team’s goals Saturday.
