JOKERS CONTINUE TO ROLL WITH 7-3 WIN OVER WINGS

August 12, 2017

Senior A League - Round 18 - Game 2

Jokers 7 - Redwings 3

 

The Adelaide Jokers continue to roll along towards a finals berth in the hotly contested Senior A League, after a 7 - 3 thrashing of the Adelaide Redwings last week at the Ice Arena.

 

The Sami Mantere coached squad jumped out to a six goal lead over the Redwings and then coasted home with the win, their third victory in the past four weeks. The Jokers have gained 9 points on the ladder as the result of a 2 - 0 - 1 - 1 record in the last four rounds of play. The Redwings drop to 6 - 6 - 0 - 1 with five rounds left to play in the minor round.

 

The first place Tigers, 28 points, Blackhawks, 24 points, and Falcons, 20 points, currently hold down the top three finals spots, but the division is still very close with the Wings, 16 points, and the Jokers on 14 points, and in hot pursuit. The next four or five rounds could prove to be very exciting games to watch, as all five teams are still in the hunt for the top three placings.   

 

Nathaniel Benson and Max Zobel (pictured) led the Jokers with two goals each, with Mantere, Ben Handberg, and Andrew Smith all adding singles.

 

Jed Rillera, Jeff Pellerin, and Reggie Mattchoss replied with single goals for the Redwings.

 

The Jokers out shot the Wings 28 - 26 with Jeremy Friederich stopping 23 shots to record the win for the Jokers, while Jo Phillis stopped 21 shots in the loss for the Wings.

 

The Jokers will play next in Senior A League action in Round 19 this Thursday 17 August when they faceoff with the Tigers in a 9:45pm game. The Wings will play the Falcons in the earlier game at 8:15pm.
