08/08/2021 Pee Wee Div 1 ice hockey – Jets v Huskies 2-3

Photos from the Pee Wee Division 1 game between the Jets and the Huskies played on 8/08/2021 at the Ice Arena in Adelaide.  The 1st period was dead even with neither team able to find a way past the respective goaltenders and the defence holding firm.

The 2nd period was tight early but eventually the Huskies Gabriel Koudelka found a loose puck in close and put it past Jets goaltender Zac Mirfin.  The goal was scored with 8:55 showing on the scoreboard and was unassisted.  The Jets would even the score a short time after with 6:18 remaining when Elijah Kelly combined with Hudson Elze.

The Huskies would go ahead again with 13:32 remaining as Jack Fode scored after much milling about in front of goal.  The Jets couldn’t quite hook up passes to evade the Huskies netminder Riley Knapp.  Eventually though they would draw level with 8:13 remaining as this time Elijah Kelly returned the favour to Elze.  A hooking penalty to Huskies Jack Fode with 4:36 remaining gave the Jets a chance to go ahead and then stave of the Huskies for a win, but the Jets just couldn’t get their game going and the penalty was waived off.  But it would be as Jack Fode scored again with a minute left in the game, unassisted, with the Jets defence unable to clear the puck away close in.   The Jets ran out of time to mount a challenge against Riley.  Shots on goal were, Riley Knapp for the Huskies facing 17 shots, and Zac Mirfin for the Jets facing 19 shots.
