Metro Jets power past Jr. Generals

The Metro Jets scored five second-period goals that Flint couldn't answer and the Jets powered past the Jr. Generals, 7-4, Wednesday night at the Flint Iceland Arena.

The two teams exchanged goals less than 30 seconds apart in the first period as Derek Szecsodi gave Flint the lead. Colin Ronayne answered right back for the Jets. Dave Stone would give the Jr. Generals the lead on a shorthanded goal late in the period for a 2-1 lead going into the second period.

The teams would again exchange goals as Chris Harvey tied the game early in the second period for the Jets and Rob Steele would put Flint back on top two minutes later. Mike Crowder then scored to give the Jr. Generals a two-goal lead just after the midway point.

Metro, however, wasn't done as Ryan Compeau scored for the Jets to close the gap to one and several minutes later, Chris Sarnowski scored to knot the score at 4-4. Harvey scored his second of the game to give the Jets a 5-4 lead and Compeau scored his second of the game with just thirty seconds to play in the period, giving the Jets a two-goal lead after two.

Brandon Barnhart scored midway through the third period to give the Jets a three-goal cushion as they cruised to a 7-4 final.

Frank Sinatra stopped 29 of 33 in the win while Chris Noonan stopped 33 of 40 shots in the loss.

In other CSHL news, the Motor City Chiefs have announced that forward Ryan Bond has been called up to the Traverse City North Stars of the NAHL. Bond spent the 2004-05 season in Toledo playing for the Cherokee where he scored six goals and had 22 assists for 28 points in 48 games. This year, he has exploded for 42 points on 14 goals and 28 assists that have him tied him for the overall league lead with St. Louis' Ryan Kretzer.
