Icebreakers drop to last in conference standings

Mission's junior B team now sitting with a 3-22 record

Mission’s Nolan Wallinger muscles past Richmond Sockeyes’ Carter Popoff in their Dec. 29 matchup.

The Mission Icebreakers have dropped to last place in the Harold Brittain conference after a pair of losses last week.

Now sitting with nine points on the season, and a record of 3-22, they’re six points behind the Ridge Meadows Flames, and will face the Delta Icehawks tonight (Jan. 12) at the Leisure Centre at 7:45 p.m.

In last Thursday’s game against the Grandview Steelers, the out-of-towners came out with a 1-0 lead after a power play goal in the first period, before the Icebreakers got back into the game, tieing it at one with a marker from Mattias Schmitt, and helpers from Zachary Moses and Danny Hall.

Grandview held it together and managed to put two more behind Icebreakers’ netminder Lukas Simpson, who faced 38 shots that night, and earned the game’s second star.

The night before, the Mission junior B team travelled to Aldergrove to take on the top team in the conference, the Kodiaks.

Aldergrove scored twice in the first period, and Danny Hall, with an assist from Vitalik Morozov, managed to put one on the board for the Icebreakers. The Kodiaks jumped on the Icebreakers early in the second, scoring again, but Michael Bell gave a boost to the Mission team with a goal in the dying minutes of the period.

Icebreakers’ Brock Decker scored once more in the third in the 4-3 losing effort.
