Metro's bumpy stretch continues, swept at home by Chicago

WATERFORD, MI - The Metro Jets, after winning five straight games, have now lost five in a row after getting swept in a two-game series by the Chicago Hitmen over the weekend at Lakeland Arena.

Saturday night, Cameron Bazin (Troy, Mich.) scored the Jets' lone goal in a 7-1 loss.

Eric Trunick (Commerce Township, Mich.) made 26 saves in goal.

Then Sunday afternoon, the Jets came from behind to tie the game twice, but gave up two late goals in the third period to suffer a 6-4 defeat.

Mike Moroso (Macomb, Mich.), Matt Stirling (Dexter, Mich.), Tommy Burns (Pinckney, Mich.) and Brett Grech (Hartland, Mich.) scored Metro's goals, while Mike Denston (White Lake, Mich.) tacked on a pair of assists.

In net, Matt Braun (Ramsey, N.J.) finished with 36 saves.

"We started out slow, got it going in the second, and then both teams got into some penalty trouble in the third period," Metro assistant coach Pete Flynn said. "(Chicago's) special teams proved to be the difference today."

This weekend, the Jets (6-10-0-0) play just one game, Sunday afternoon at home against the defending Tier III Junior A national champion St. Louis Jr. Blues. Game time is set for 1:20 p.m.
