JOKERS SCORE EARLY TO BEAT BLACKHAWKS

June 2, 2017

Senior C League - Round 9 Game 2

Jokers 2 - Blackhawks 1

 

Andrew Grice and Mark George scored first period goals to carry the Adelaide Jokers to a close 2 - 1 win over the Blackhawks in a Round 9 Senior C League game last weekend

 

The win improves the Jokers record to 4 - 3 and moves them into a second place tie with the Adelaide Tigers, only one win behind the front running Redwings.

 

Jokers goalie Jessica Forrest was all set to register her first shutout of the 2017 season when the Blackhawks’ Mark Goudge found the back of the net with only 8 seconds left on the clock to spoil her party.

 

Forrest stopped 10 of 11 shots to record the win in the Jokers goal, while Nick Siebert blocked 23 of 25 shots for the Blackhawks.

 “ So far the season has gone well, with a few wins and a few losses, but I think the toughest thing for any new team is just getting used to how your team mates play, and team play has been something we’ve been working hard with ",said Jokers forward Renee Marsland, who assisted on the Jokers opening goal by Grice. 

 

"In our game against the Blackhawks, our passing in our offensive zone lead to some good opportunities and points on the board.”

 

“I love playing with these guys. They’re a great group, especially over our last few games we’ve really started to work well together and get some good plays going. Plus there’s the socials and the “sneaky team drinks” at the Wheatie that has also helped us to bond as a team. I've only been playing hockey for the past few years but I've fallen in love with the game."

 

"I’ve always wanted to be a part of the Jokers, so when I got drafted here it was awesome. I'm hoping as I get better I can move my way up in divisions and continue to rock the green and red”

 

The Jokers return to Senior C League action on Thursday 22 June when they meet the Tigers in a 7:45pm contest.
