Outlaws split pair of games

Mission hockey squad back in action this weekend

Outlaws defender Brenden Saether led Mission with two goals in Saturday’s win.

The Mission City Outlaws impressed on home ice on Saturday, but then stumbled in Burnaby against the Grandview Steelers on Sunday afternoon.

Mission welcomed the expansion Langley Trappers to the Mission Leisure Centre for the first time ever on Saturday, and opened the game scoring five unanswered goals to post the 7-5 win.

Brendan Saether (two), Brayden Durante, Conner Jollymore and Liam Warren helped give the Outlaws a significant cushion, but the Trappers battled back to make it a 5-4 game early into the third period.

Mission’s Justin Hargrave and Haydn Downing replied as the period continued to give the Outlaws some insurance.

Mission goalie Keaton Dyck made 18 saves for his second win of the Pacific Junior Hockey League season.

Special teams made a difference in the game, as the Outlaws scored a pair of power play goals and a pair of shorthanded goals.

Mission then travelled to Burnaby to take on the Steelers on Sunday, but the game unraveled for the Outlaws in the third period.

Outlaws forward Justin Hargrave opened the scoring, but the Steelers tied the game about seven minutes later.

Grandview added a power play goal in the second period, and then the Steelers took over in the third period by scoring four unanswered goals to earn the 6-1 win.

Outlaws goalie Mitchell Davis made 26 saves in the loss, and Mission was victimized three times by the Steelers’ power play.

The Outlaws’ record stands at four wins and six losses after the weekend, and they sit in fourth place in the Harold Brittain conference.

Mission took on the Trappers on Wednesday in Langley, but results were not available at press time. They then host games tonight (7 p.m.) against the North Vancouver Wolf Pack and Saturday (6:45 p.m.) against the Aldergrove Kodiaks. Both games are at the Mission Leisure Centre.
