Matt Hanewall scored just over two minutes into overtime as the Janesville Jets opened a weekend series against the Chippewa Steel with a 2-1 North American Hockey League victory in Chippewa Falls.

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.

Erik Bargholtz gave the Jets the lead at 14:25 in the first period. Killian Kiecker-Olson answered for the Steel at 3:06 in the second period.

Chippewa goalie Josh Langford made 37 saves, while Janesville’s Garrett Nieto stopped 26 saves in his return from an injury that kept him out since early October.
