Cleveland scores in final second, then in OT, to sink Jets Saturday

WATERFORD, MI - Waterford native Scott Cuthrell did the Metro Jets in on Saturday night, scoring the game-tying goal in the final second of the third period and then the overtime winner as the Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks defeated the Jets 6-5 at Lakeland Arena.

Brad Hepler, a former Jr. Lumberjack who came over to the Jets in a trade for forward Jeff Monfils two weeks ago, scored two goals for the Jets and Metro captain Matt Stirling drew four assists.

Monfils was held without a point in his first game against his old teammates.

Doug Andrews and Kyle Shreve each contributed a goal and an assist for the Jets (12-18-2-0), while Josh Hosking netted the other goal.

Jets' goaltender Austin Julvezan made 40 saves between the pipes.

Metro hosts the Toledo Cherokee Sunday afternoon at 2:50 p.m. and after that, the Jets don't play at Lakeland again until March 2, also against Toledo.
