Pat Machibroda had his best outing of the season going 2 innings allowing 2 hits with 5 K’s and 0 BB’s. Luc Hebert finished things off with the victory going 2 innings allowing 1 BB and 1 K. Offensively, the Jets were led by Joel Mazurkewich who was 1 for 4 with 1 run scored. Jager Toffan was 2 for 3 with a run scored. Nolan Bumstead led the way going 2 for 2 with 2 doubles and an RBI.
The victory pushes the Jets record to 13-4-2 overall. Next action is VHS Graduation weekend vs Badlands Academy at 12 noon (DH) on Saturday and 12 noon (DH) vs Great Falls Chargers on Sunday.
Congrats to all the grade 12 Jets on their graduation.
