Mission City Outlaws eliminated from the playoffs

Mission fell four games to one to the Aldergrove Kodiaks in the Harold Brittain conference final

The season has come to an end for the Mission City Outlaws. On Wednesday night, the local hockey squad was in Aldergrove to battle the Kodiaks in game five of the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs.

The Outlaws were down three games to one and needed a win to stay alive. However, the Kodiaks jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the second period and went on to win the game 7-5, eliminating the Mission squad.

Dylan Tonks scored two goals in a losing cause for the Outlaws with singles going to Cayden Karcioglu, Kyle Sackmann and Justin Plett.

The series opened last Wednesday in Aldergrove, with the Kodiaks picking up the 5-2 win.

Aldergrove jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one, with Mission’s Dylan Stoltz making it a one-goal game in the second period. The third period was all Kodiaks, as they went up 4-1 and cruised to the 5-2 win. Matthew Konrad scored a shorthanded goal for Mission in the third.

The Outlaws were outshot 42-32 in game one, with goalie Daniel Zuvic making 37 saves.

Thursday’s game two, also in Aldergrove, saw a reversal of roles, with Mission jumping out to a 2-0 and hanging on for the 5-3 win.

Mission’s Mackenzie Adams and Carson Preston (shorthanded) put Mission up 2-1 after 20 minutes, and Dylan Tonks put Mission up 3-1 early into the second. The Kodiaks scored a minute later to leave the Outlaws up 3-2 after two. The teams traded goals in the third, with Konrad scoring twice.

Outlaws goalie Isaac Elias made 28 saves to earn the win. Mission outshot Aldergrove 41-31 in game two.

The series shifted to Mission for Saturday’s game three, and this time it was Aldergrove who earned the 5-2 win.

The Kodiaks dominated play early, scoring four unanswered goals over the first two period before Konrad scored on the power play. Mission’s Curtis Foulds added a late goal to make it 5-2.

Mission was outshot 38-30 in the game, with Elias making 33 saves in the loss.

Monday’s game four in Mission was another similar start, with the Kodiaks jumping out to a 2-0 lead early and then holding off a second period comeback to win 4-2.

Kyle Sackmann and Stoltz scored the goals for Mission, and the Outlaws outshot Aldergrove 36-22. Elias made 18 saves in a losing cause.
