A rock solid defence, steady goal keeping, and a two goal effort was all the Adelaide Jokers needed to come away with a 2 - 0 shutout win over the Adelaide Falcons in Senior C League action recently.

 

Luke Burford’s goal early into the opening period proved to be the winning goal for the Jokers, who improved their season C League record to 5 - 4 - 0 - 0 for 15 points and tied with the Adelaide Tigers for second spot on the five club division ladder.

 

Goalkeeper Mathew Peterson made easy work of the 10 shots fired his way by the Falcons recording his first shut-out of the IHSA season.

 

“The shutout belongs to the rest of the team more than it belongs to me” said Peterson.  “We had strong defence and aggressive offence, and that kept the puck out of my zone for most of the game.”

 

Luke, and his brother James Burford then assisted on the Jokers second goal from Ben Davis  (pictured right) near the midway mark of the second period, in a low scoring match.  

 

The Jokers recently added star junior goalie Jeremy Friederich to their A League team, meaning Peterson has been moved down to the C League roster for the rest of the season. Jessica Forrest the Jokers C League goalie prior to the shift will handle the backup duties behind Peterson.

 

“I’ve only just recently moved into the C Grade team and couldn’t be happier with the strength and chemistry in front, with the team all round playing very smart hockey.  They’ve worked hard to put us in a very  strong position for the second half of the season.”  added Peterson, following the victory.

 

The Jokers outshot the Falcons 33-10, with Peterson notching the win for the Green Machine, and Lachlan Johnson stopping 31 shots for the Falcons.

 

Both clubs return to C League action, Saturday 15 July, with the Jokers meeting the Blackhawks at 3:45pm and the Falcons meeting the Blackhawks in a 5:15pm encounter.
