Green grass. That isn’t the first indication that you aren’t in Frozen Tundra territory anymore, but for baseball fans it is the most beautiful thing you see when arriving to watch games in the Arizona Cactus League.

Janesville Jets players Brenden Olson (Minnesota State-Mankato) and Sean Driscoll (Boston University) made Division I college commitments last week as the team kicked off a two-week trip to Alaska. After splitting with Kenai River, the Jets open a three-game series at Fairbanks on Thursday night.

The Janesville Jets gave up three goals in a six-minute span late in the third period en route to a 4-1 loss to the Kenai River Brown Bears late Saturday in a North American Hockey League game in Soldotna, Alaska. 

Hanewall's 11th goal of the season came off an assist from Jack Vincent and boosted the Jets (22-16-2-2) to their second straight win. The Steel (14-26-2-1) remain in last place in the Midwest Division. 

Justin Engelkes scored in the third period to force overtime, and Matt Hanewall scored 4 minutes, 16 seconds into the extra period as the Janesville Jets defeated the Springfield Jr. Blues 4-3 in an North American Hockey League game Saturday at Janesville Ice Arena. 

After battling back from a torn ACL and fighting off mononucleosis, Walworth Big Foot graduate Jackson Enz celebrated winning a national championship with his North Dakota State teammates in Frisco, Texas, earlier this month.

Janesville scored twice in the opening six minutes of Saturday's home game against the Kenai River Brown Bears and held on late for a 3-2 North American Hockey League victory at the Janesville Ice Arena.

A cordless, brushless half-inch drill is a great Christmas gift for any ice fisher in your life living south of Highway 21—more precisely a DeWalt or Milwaukee drill with at least 20-volt batteries.

With 33 points, the Jets are tied with Fairbanks for second place in the Midwest Division. The two teams are seven points back of the division-leading Minnesota Magicians.

Janesville has a chance to cut into that deficit this weekend when it hosts the Magicians for 7 p.m. games on both Friday and Saturday nights.

Brenden Olson scored a goal and added an assist in his first game with the Jets this season, and the team won 3-0 against Fairbanks on Friday.
