Three in the third send Jets past Cats Sunday afternoon

DEARBORN, MI - The Metro Jets faced a 2-1 deficit midway through the second period Sunday afternoon, but scored the next four goals and held on for a 5-3 win over the Michigan Mountain Cats at Canfield Arena.

After a scoreless first period, Tommy Kilgore (Pinckney, Mich.) staked the Jets to a 1-0 lead with his first of two goals just 20 seconds into the second period. Spencer Scahill scored the next two for the Mountain Cats, both on the power play (at 3:32 and 10:29) to give Michigan the lead until Tommy Burns (Pinckney, Mich.) scored a goal with the man-advantage at 12:51 to send the Jets into the second intermission tied at 2-all.

In the third period, Matt Stirling (Dexter, Mich.) tallied at 5:13 and then Dan Hudson (Gregory, Mich.) and Kilgore (14:27) scored 22 seconds apart at 14:05 and 14:27 to complete the comeback.

Aaron Teal scored a late goal for Michigan at 18:11.

For the Jets (2-5-0-0), Eric Trunick (Commerce Township, Mich.) earned the win in goal with a 21-save performance. Trunick has been in goal for both of Metro's wins this season.

Schuyler Ferguson took the loss for the Mountain Cats, but did make 27 saves in the game.

The Jets host the Quad City Jr. Flames next weekend for a two-game series at Lakeland Arena. Game time Saturday night is 7:50 p.m. with a 1:20 p.m. puck drop set for Sunday afternoon.
