Tallieu stops all 24, Sawyer pots pair as Metro blanks Wooster Saturday night

FRASER, Mich. – In just his second game of the season, Brian Tallieu stopped all 24 shots he faced to lead the Metro Jets to a 6-0 win over the Wooster Oilers Saturday night at Fraser Hockeyland.

Tallieu last played Sept. 18, and he won that game, too, making 19 saves in a 5-2 win at home over the Cincinnati Thunder.

“I felt really good out there,” said Tallieu. “Thanks to my coach, Randy Wilson, I was able to see and track pucks and keep my team in the game. When I found out I was starting, it was a combination of readiness and excitement. I’m committed to being here and I just wanted to go out there and give my team a game.”

“I’m very happy (for Tallieu), first of all,” added Wilson. “I thought he played a pretty composed game. His positioning was good, his decision making was good and he looked very comfortable in the net.”

In front of Tallieu, Griffin Sawyer scored a pair of goals, while Louis Boudon, Mathias Tellstrom and Chas Distelrath each contributed a goal and an assist.

Cam Schwartz scored the other goal for the Jets.

Wooster goalie Michael Hubbard finished with 51 saves in suffering the defeat.

The Jets are back home next weekend, hosting the West Michigan Wolves on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m. and then the Toledo Cherokee the following afternoon at 12:15 p.m. to wrap up the home schedule for the 2016 calendar year.

Both games will be streamed on www.hockeytv.com.
