The Jets took 2 games in their first meeting with Okotoks this fall.  In game 1 the Jets saw Justin Davies earn the victory on the mound going 4 innings allowing 1 run, 2 BB’s and 8 K’s.  Victor Caruso and Brody McDonald threw the final 3 innings as the Jets cruised to a 12-4 victory.  Offensively, the Jets exploded for arguably their best performance to date, scoring 12 runs on 15 hits, including 9 extra base hits.  The Jets were led by Brendan Hendriks who was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles, a homerun, and 5 RBI’s.  Kym Barthel was a homerun shy of the cycle in a 4 for 5 effort.  Brant Hittel, Ben Douglas and Curtis Mazerkuwich also played a big role in the win as they combined for 6 of the Jets’ 15 hits.  Blair Balog and Luke Barry also chipped in with a hit a piece.

Game 2 saw the Jets win by a score of 5-1.  Taylor Simmonds earned the victory on the mound allowing only 2 hits over his 6 innings of work.  Blair Balog only needed 11 pitches in the seventh to seal the 16th win of the fall for the Jets.   Offensively, the Jets only collected 3 hits as a team.  Brant Hittel had the big hit for the Jets as he collected 2 RBI’s in his first inning homerun.  Kym Barthel and Levi Westerlund rounded out the offence collecting a hit each.
