The visiting Jets broke a scoreless tie when Keegan Rajala snagged the twine 1:19 into the third period, while teammate Cooper Burkman added an insurance goal later in the period for a 2-0 victory. Miners goalies Ryan Kerkela and Patrick Klumpp combined to make 30 saves, including all 20 taken by Jeffers during the first two periods. Also on Tuesday, the Negaunee team honored its seniors, Connor O’Dovero and Garrett Mann. (Photo courtesy Daryl T. Jarvinen)
