Game Recap:

Jumpin Jack's Flash to comeback Tie

The second last game was a partial matchup of last week's 2023 semifinal as Kaptain Kortnie Legari and her Sarcastic Monkeys 2.0 took on Brock and Faith Murray's Jumpin Jacks, the game featured the same captains and 9 of the players who'd faced off just last week in a game won by Hocus Pocus on their way to a Bubba championship, but that was last year so let's see how this season would open!
Things opened pretty well for SM2 this time around, gifted with an early PP opportunity they would strike quickly with Tania Drouin 🚨one timing home an absolute beauty cross court backdoor feed from Dan Blondeau 🍏🍏. Very late in the period it would become the Michel Blondeau show as the renowned magician with the ball would weave through nearly the entire JJ team before depositing the ball in the back of the cage for a 2-0 lead.
Early in the second stanza rookie Melanie Lalonde 🚨🍏 was "Jenny on the spot" at the side of the net for her first O4 goal to extend the SM2 lead to 3-0, but soon after JJ would get on the board and unsurprisingly it was captain Brock Murray 🚨🍏🍏 taking matters into his own hands burying a great feed from Sara Bruce 🚨🍏🍏. With less than half a period left Michel would pot another one to make it 4-1 but JJ weren't quite done yet, after battling with the high stick rule early on JJ rookie Christopher Veilleux 🚨🚨 looked more and more comfortable as the game progressed and showed late that his shot will be an issue for goaltenders this season. Veilleux would bring the SM2 lead to 2 goals with 5 minutes remaining on a snipe from the slot then score another later through a crowd to make it 4-3 with 2:33 remaining. With just over a minute to play the Jacks would complete the comeback as unsung Sara Bruce capped a very strong showing with a blast through traffic to even the game at 4-4. Despite a couple of late shots on goal that's how this game would end as both teams escape with a point in a very entertaining match.
