Kelowna, BC – 

The VAB Jets finished off the fall season with a great final game vs the Prospects Academy winning by a score of 1-0.  It was a pitchers duel the entire way with Ben Erwin earning the victory going 5 innings allowing 2 hits, 2 BB’s and 2 K’s.  Jaden Griffin threw a solid 6th inning with 2 K’s and 1 BB. Zach Newman earned the save throwing 1 inning allowing 1 hit with 1 K.  Offensively, the Jets were led by Damiano Palmegiani who was 2 for 3.  Palmegiani had a controversial hit called foul in the top of the 4th and followed it up with a solo shot to left center for the only run.  Liam Vulcano finished the game 1 for 3 with a double.  Brett Mercier was 1 for 3 with a double and Dayton Peters rounded out the offense going 1 for 2.

The Jets will now get back to studies for the week before travelling to Lethbridge to take on the PBA both Saturday and Sunday this week.
