Andrews scores late, Jets top Battle Creek in a shootout

BATTLE CREEK, MI - Doug Andrews' power-play goal at 13:38 of the third period tied the game at 4-4 and the Metro Jets went on to defeat the Battle Creek Jr. Revolution 5-4 in a shootout Saturday night at Revolution Arena.

Kyle Shreve scored twice for the Jets and Andrew Palushaj added a goal as well.

New goaltender Riley Corbin, on loan from the Ontario Hockey League's Plymouth Whalers, made 24 saves in regulation and overtime and then stopped all four shooters in the shootout.

Battle Creek goaltender Matt Hughes stopped 46 shots.

The Jets (12-16-1-0) are idle until next weekend when they return home to Lakeland Arena for a two-game set with the Michigan Mountain Cats.

TRANSACTION: Earlier Saturday, the Jets dealt forward Jeff Monfils back to the Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks for 18-year-old defenseman Brad Hepler, a Chelsea native. Monfils was acquired from Cleveland last summer.
