The Vacaville Jets had a solid takeoff at the California Amateur Hockey Association state tournament on Friday in Simi Valley.
The Jets traveling pee wee team picked up two wins in the A Division tournament and could be headed to today’s finals. The Vacaville squad beat the Anaheim Junior Ducks 5-2 and defeated the Tri-Valley Blue Devils 2-0.
The early wins gave Vacaville six quick points. The Jets were scheduled to play the San Diego Oilers late on Saturday. The top two teams in the field advanced to a 9 a.m. championship game today.
The Jets reached the state finals by winning the Northern California championship three weeks ago on home ice at Vacaville Ice Sports. They won four straight games to qualify for the weekend trip to Southern California.
The team is coached by Vacaville Ice Sports hockey director Larry Cahn and assistant coaches Evan Alexius, Richard Appleby, Shane Brown and John Herrera. Debra Kopelman is the team representative and manager.
