Lawrence scores late to push Jets past Cherokee

TOLEDO, Ohio - Mike Lawrence's second goal of the game at 15:50 of the third period snapped a 3-3 tie and the Metro Jets kept their NA3HL playoff hopes alive with a 4-3 win over the Toledo Cherokee Sunday afternoon at the Team Toledo Ice House.

Metro captain Matt Stirling had a goal and an assist, Alex Holm added a goal and Chris Mayer tacked on a pair of assists in the win that gets the Jets to the .500 mark (21-21-3-0) and within four points of the fourth playoff spot in the East Division held by Toledo.

The Jets have a game in hand on the Cherokee as well.

 Goaltender Riley Corbin stopped 19 shots for the win.

Metro plays three games this upcoming week, starting Tuesday night in Flint at 9 p.m. and then wrapping the regular season on Saturday and Sunday at Lakeland Arena against the Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks. Game time is 7:50 p.m. Saturday night and 2:50 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
