Janesville Jets finish home-and-home sweep
After beating the Coulee Region Chill 3-1 on the road Friday, the Janesville Jets did it again Saturday, this time at the Janesville Ice Arena by a tally of 4-2.
The Jets jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the first period to take control of the game. With a 3-0 lead in the third period, Coulee Region got back into the game with a pair of goals. In the waning moments of the game, the Chill pulled their goalie to try and draw even, but Jordan Himley scored his second goal of the game on the empty net to end the Chill’s comeback attempt.
Logan Halladay was between the pipes again, stopping 32 shots in his eighth straight win.
