Jets lose lead, game Saturday night against Mountain Cats

DEARBORN, MI - The Metro Jets took a 2-1 lead over the Michigan Mountain Cats early in the second period, but the Mountain Cats scored the next two goals to skate to a 3-2 win Saturday night at Canfield Arena.

Mike Moroso (Macomb, Mich.) and Brett Grech (Hartland, Mich.) scored 1:18 apart in the middle frame (at 5:09 and 6:27) to give Metro a 2-1 lead at the time, but Jacob Endicott scored at 13:44 of the period and then Cody Thompson scored a power-play goal with 70 seconds remaining in the period in what would be the eventual game-winner.

Moroso's goal was his team-best third of the year.

Josh Foster scored the game's first goal at 11:14 of the first period.

For the Jets (1-4-0-0), Eric Trunick (Commerce Township, Mich.) started his third straight game in goal and finished with 33 saves.

Schuyler Ferguson made 33 stops for the Mountain Cats.

Metro is off until next Saturday night when it hosts the Flint Jr. Generals at 7:50 p.m. at Lakeland Arena. The Jets then head back to Dearborn the following afternoon for a 12:50 p.m. matinee with the Mountain Cats.
