Hargett, Monfils each score twice as Jets sweep Battle Creek

WATERFORD, MI – The Metro Jets completed a season-opening two-game sweep with a 6-1 win over the Battle Creek Jr. Revolution Sunday afternoon at Lakeland Arena.

Travis Hargett (pictured) and Jeff Monfils notched two goals apiece for the Jets, while Doug Andrews recorded four assists and captain Matt Stirling added three helpers.

“Today was a better game (than Saturday night) and the kids played hard,” said Metro coach Jason Cirone. “We went over things in our video session before the game that we really did wrong yesterday and I think they worked hard at improving it. There is obviously a lot that isn’t where we want it to be and nothing against Battle Creek, but if we make the same mistakes against Flint, Toledo, Cleveland and St. Louis, we won’t win.”

Ian Springfield and Ryan Chapie added single goals for Metro and Alex Holm tacked on a pair of assists to help back Trevor Kalinowski’s 31 saves in goal.

Kalinowski’s lone blemish was a missed poke check on Battle Creek captain Joey Lioy, who scored into the open net on a Battle Creek power play late in the second period.

“This weekend, I liked the fact that we scored goals,” said Cirone. “Offensively, we don’t have any issues. I like our team camaraderie and the fact that when I get on someone, one of his teammates is going to pull him aside and tell him not to worry about it and keep playing.”

The Jets (2-0-0-0) head to Cleveland next weekend for a two-game set with the Jr. Lumberjacks. Game time Saturday night is 6:30 p.m.with a 1:15 p.m.matinee wrapping the series up on Sunday.

“I’ll watch some video on Cleveland tonight and then we get back to work at practice tomorrow at 4,” said Cirone.
