The second Golden Jets team in the men’s national league (Toronto Silver Jets) escaped the East Conference cellar of the MLWP with a 12-12 in Hamilton against Hammer WPC.
The teams were deadlocked 3-3 after the opening quarter. Hammer then ran off three unanswered goals before the Silver Jets could respond leaving Hammer up 6-4 at the half. The Silver Jets roared back in the third to take a 8-7 lead only to see it slip away in the last minute as Hammer scored twice to lead 9-8 entering the final frame. It appeared bleak when Hammer scored to go up 12-10 with two minutes remaining but the Silver Jets were relentless and scored twice to produce the 12-12 result.
Stevo Djordjevic led the way with 5 goals while David Rapoport notched 4. Alex Ioannou scored twice and Victor Brancus added a single.
The Silver Jets will enter the National Finals as the 7th seed and will play a quarter-final match against #2 seed CAMO (Montreal).
