The '98 Ohio AAA Blue Jackets played in their second tournament game versus the Pembina Trail Twins (Winnipeg) in the Quebec PeeWee Tournament.
The game was scoreless until the middle of the second period when Winnipeg scored on a power play goal. Two more goals by Winnipeg in the second period put the Jackets down 3-0 going into the third period. The Jackets came out and played a very strong third period with many scoring opportunities, unfortunately none of which resulted in a goal.
The loss knocks the Jackets out of tournament play, but the team has six exhibition games scheduled before returning to Columbus. Over the next few days the club will be playing Wilkes-Barre/Scranaton, the Phoenix Lemieux Academy, Quebec Remparts and the San Jose Jr. Sharks. Opponents for two of the games have yet to be determined.
