Last Friday night, the seniors of the Jenison-Zeeland Varsity Hockey Team celebrated teachers, with each senior inviting the teacher who made the biggest impact in their life to come to the game and out on the ice with them! The team then took on Kalamazoo United.
In the first period, Kalamazoo went up by two goals but our Captains, Brett Veltema and Chad Lemke, scored a goal apiece before heading into the locker room. Brett Batten was between the pipes for the Cat’s.
In the second period, KU scored early to take the lead, but only kept it for a few minutes. Chad Lemke scored again, tying things up, and then Hunter Jamieson scored two goals, putting the Cats in the lead by two.
In the third period, Kalamazoo scored two goals, tying things up again and sending the game into overtime. With just over a minute to go in overtime, #8 Hunter Jamieson (hat trick) roofed one of the top posts, ending the game with a win! Credited with assists for the night: Chad Lemke with three, Tyler Heyboer with three, Hunter Jamieson and Skyler Vining each with one.
