Icebreakers drop two more games

Mission's junior B team plays Dec. 15 at the Leisure Centre

The Mission Icebreakers lost to the Abbotsford Pilots last Friday

The Mission junior B hockey team was frozen out again in its last two outings, losing to the Abbotsford Pilots and Richmond Sockeyes, both in the top ranks of the Harold Brittain and Tom Shaw Conferences.

Last Friday night saw the Icebreakers take its cross-river rivals in a 6-3 losing effort that saw goals from Danny Hall, and two from Travis Park, who was also named third star of the night.

The Mission squad were down 2-1 after the first, but battled back with two goals in the second to lead the game. Four consecutive Pilot goals in the third period ended the Icebreakers’ chances of putting another win in the books.

The previous night, the Sockeyes hosted Mission’s PIJHL team at its arena.

The Sockeyes put points on the board first, scoring the only goal of the first period, and after a brief tying goal by Mission’s Mattias Schmitt on a power play at the beginning  of the second, the Sockeyes hammered their opponents for the rest of the night, scoring five unanswered goals.

Mission now sits second from the bottom in the Brittain conference, one point above Ridge Meadows, with a 3-16 record.

The Icebreakers play the Port Moody Black Panthers tonight (Dec. 15) at the Mission Leisure Centre. Puck drops at 7:45 p.m.
