Shreve pops pair of goals to lead Jets over Jr. Generals

FLINT, MI - Kyle Shreve netted a pair of goals to lead the Metro Jets to a 4-2 win over the Flint Jr. Generals Saturday night at Iceland Arena.

Mike Lawrence added a goal and an assist and Brad Hepler also tallied for the Jets.

Doug Andrews picked up three assists, Brian Ziola two helpers and goaltender Riley Corbin made 38 saves for the win.

"Winning in Flint is always hard and they're a good hockey team over there," said Metro coach Jason Cirone. "I thought everybody was really good tonight. It took a total team effort to beat Flint, a team that's deep and if your team doesn't play as a complete unit, you don't beat them. I thought everyone was good, right from Corbin on down to Hepler, who didn't get a lot of ice, but scores a big goal for us."

For Flint, Eddie Osowski and Nick Gnagni scored and Ted Barile finished with 26 stops.

The Jets (19-21-3-0), still mathematically in the hunt for the NA3HL postseason, play a home-and-home series with the Toledo Cherokee next weekend, starting Saturday night at Lakeland Arena with a 7:50 p.m. opening faceoff.
