Mission City Outlaws post big win over Surrey

Outlaws down Knights 10-2 on home ice, bounce back after loss to White Rock

The Mission City Outlaws got on the winning track in a big way on Sunday, beating the hapless Surrey Knights 10-2 at the Mission Leisure Centre.

But the game didn’t exactly start out as planned for the Outlaws, as Surrey got on the board to open the scoring at 4:51 of the first period.

An Outlaws offensive explosion followed, as Mission scored seven consecutive goals over the first two periods to go up 7-1 after two and then cruise to the 10-2 win.

Outlaws goal scorers were: Conner Moar (two), Justin Hargrave, Chase Newman, Matias Corazza, Jayden Martin, Dawson Campbell, Joshua Romeyn, Kyle Sackmann and Kade Padgham.

Several Outlaws had multi-point games: Hargrave (four), Newman (three), Blake Clease (three), Nicholas Thomson (two), Moar (two), Corazza (two), Martin (two), Campbell (two) and Romeyn (two).

The Outlaws outshot Surrey 35-20 and the power play was buzzing with two goals on six opportunities. Mission also added a shorthanded goal.

Outlaws goalie Daniel Zuvic made 18 saves in the win to record his second victory on the season. Hargrave now has nine points in eight games, and is 24th overall in league scoring.

The win was a nice bounce back for the Outlaws after a 4-3 loss on the road to the White Rock Whalers.

Campbell opened the scoring at 6:20 with a power play goal, but just 43 seconds later, White Rock tied the game. Martin then put the Outlaws up 2-1 with 58 seconds left to exit the first up one goal.

The second period was all Whalers, as White Rock scored a pair of power play goals and outshot the Outlaws 13-7.

Mission’s Michael Nemeth tied the game at three at 1:16 of the third period, but White Rock added another power play goal at 12:14 and that proved to be the game winner as the Whalers held on for the win.

The Outlaws outshot the Whalers 32-25 in the loss, and goalie Isaac Elias made 21 saves in a losing cause.

Mission remains in fourth place in the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s Harold Brittain conference standings with a record of 2-4-2.

Mission returns to action with a pair of home games this weekend.

The Outlaws host the aforementioned Whalers on Friday at the MLC. Faceoff is set for 8:30 p.m.

The Outlaws then host the Abbotsford Pilots on Saturday. That game begins at 6:45 p.m.
