The Janesville Jets scored twice in less than a minute in the third period Friday to earn their third victory over the Minnesota Magicians in the past week.
The Jets, coming off a series sweep in Janesville last weekend, got goals from Jordon Halverson at 7:01 of the third and Isaac Novak 45 seconds later and then held on for a 3-2 road win.
The two goals gave the Jets a 3-0 lead.
Former Jets player T.J. Sagissor later assisted on one goal and scored another to get the Magicians within a goal with more than five minutes remaining, but Janesville held on from there.
The Jets were outshot 45-20, but goalie Grant Riley stopped 43 shots to earn the victory.
Novak’s goal was his seventh of the season, the second-best mark on the team. Jake Dunlap started the scoring for Janesville in the second period.
The two teams play again tonight in Richfield.
