The Chicago Jets Bantam 1 Gold team went 3-0-1 in the NIHL playoffs to win the League Championship last weekend. After receiving a President's Cup trophy from regular season league play (14-2-0), the Jets went undefeated in round robin play against St. Jude, the Ice Dogs, and the Irish. The Jets finished the job against the Evanston Wildkits in the championship game.
Bantam 1 - NIHL Gold Champions!!!!
Beating the Leafs 3-0 in game one, Wilmette 3-2 in game two and finishing with the regular season Champion Stallions in a 0-0 tie, at 2-0-1, the Jets advanced to the Championship game vs the Bulldogs.
In the middle of the Wolves Cup playoffs, the state playoffs began for the Blackhawk Cup. The Jets beat the Admirals 5-0 leading to their next opponent the Ice Dogs Central States team. Championship weekend was a wild affair with the Squirts having to play two games in less than 24 hours, first up the Ice Dogs CS team in the BHC. Jets had a 1-0 lead with 3 minutes left in the 3rd when the Ice Dogs leveled the score which sent the game into a 10 minute overtime. Overtime could have gone either way with both teams missing clear opportunities the Dogs capitalized with 4 minutes remaining to advance 2-1. With no time to worry about the past the squirts were back at it the following morning for the NIHL Elite Championship game against the Bulldogs. Once again the Jets jumped out to a 1-0 lead and held that lead until halfway through the 3rd period the Bulldogs tied the game on a questionable goal to level the score sending the game into overtime for the second time in back to back games and again after quality chances by both teams with 3 minutes remaining the Bulldogs scored beating our boys 2-1.
This was truly an amazing run by the boys and they had to earn it every step of the way! Congratulations to Squirt 1 from the Jets organization, your Parents and coaches!
