Jets blow third-period lead as Cleveland rallies Sunday afternoon

WATERFORD, MI - Jeff Monfils and Doug Andrews staked the Metro Jets to a 2-1 lead after two periods, but the Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks came back with two goals in the third period to escape Lakeland Arena with a 3-2 win Sunday afternoon.

Cameron Dimmitt and Cleveland captain Fred West scored for the Jr. Lumberjacks in the final period to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Austin Julvezan made 29 saves for the Jets, while Christian Michalik stopped 13 at the other end. The goaltending battle was especially interesting as it featured a rematch of last spring's Division I high school state semifinals - Michalik for eventual champion Brighton and Julvezan for Orchard Lake St. Mary's.

The Jets (5-8-0) host the Flint Jr. Generals next Saturday night before traveling to Battle Creek Sunday afternoon.
