Janesville 4 @ Chicago 3 – The Janesville Jets completed a three-game road sweep of the Hitmen with a 4-3 win on Sunday.  Lawrence Childs gave Janesville the lead less than two minutes into the game, but that was answered by a goal by Chicago’s Shigenobu Kakudate, who tied the game at 1-1 with a late 1st period goal.  Things were looking good for the Hitmen after goals in the opening two minutes of the 2nd period by David Gandara and Anthony Annunziato, but Janesville stormed back with two of their own late in the frame from Connor McBride and a power play goal from John Olen to tie the game at 3-3 headed into the 3rd period.  Janesville would get the lone goal in the 3rd period from Jordan Bancroft’s unassisted goal, which turned out to be the game-winner as the Jets kept pace with the St. Louis Bandits for the top spot in the Midwest Division.  Tony Kujava made 24 saves in the win for the Jets, while Nick Kohn made 37 saves in the loss for Chicago.
