Jets sweep in Cincinnati, but Quenneville ‘not happy with a lot of our guys’

CENTERVILLE, Ohio – The Metro Jets finished off a weekend road sweep of the Cincinnati Thunder with a 7-3 win Sunday afternoon at South Metro Sports.

That said, Jets coach-GM Justin Quenneville was not in a celebratory mood after the game.

“We were not sharp today,” said Quenneville. “In fact, collectively, we made the game harder on ourselves throughout the game. In the end, we had more legs than they did in the third and that proved to be the difference, but overall, I am not happy with a lot of our guys. We have players that need to get on board ASAP or they won’t be here moving forward.

“At this point of the year, poor decision making and immaturity to your approach of the game isn’t going to cut it. A couple weeks off is no excuse. After the game, we had a good talk and we will see how they respond this week at practice.”

Mathias Tellstrom (pictured) tallied two goals and an assist, while Jets captain Graham Day and Robby Flannery each recorded a goal and an assist.

“We got two really important wins here in Cincinnati this weekend to keep our streak alive, so the boys are really happy about that,” Tellstrom said. “But we started off a little shaky in both of the games, but at the same time, I feel like we were the stronger team and we controlled the majority of both games.”

Connor Inger. Griffin Sawyer and Chas Distelrath also scored, Louis Boudon tacked on two assists and Brian Tallieu stopped 23 shots for the win in goal.

Tyler Geloneck made 35 saves for the Thunder.

The Jets play just one game next weekend, in Toledo on Friday night to play the Cherokee at 7 p.m.
