The Mission City Outlaws’ strong play on home ice continued on Saturday, but the club’s four-game win streak ended in Burnaby on Sunday.
Saturday saw the Outlaws come up big in the third period to earn a 6-4 win over the Port Moody Panthers at the Mission Leisure Centre.
The teams were tied 2-2 after one and then 4-4 after two, but Mission got goals from Chase Newman and Brayden Stewart late in the third to skate away with the win. The Outlaws also got goals from Blake Clease (two), Dylan Tonks and Justin Hargrave.
Clease, Tonks and Hargrave all had three-point nights, while Stewart and Newman contributed with two. Outlaws goalie Daniel Zuvic made 18 saves in the win, and Mission outshot Port Moody 31-22.
The Outlaws then travelled to Burnaby for a date with the Grandview Steelers on Sunday night and were blanked 3-0.
Grandview scored a power play goal to open the scoring in the second, and added two more goals in the third for the win.
Mission goalie Isaac Elias was solid in goal, making 24 saves in the loss.
The pair of weekend games followed Mission’s 4-3 win over the Richmond Sockeyes in Richmond on Oct. 17.
The Outlaws surged in the third period with three goals to score the win. Dawson Campbell, Tristan Takats, Jayden Martin and Hargrave all tallied for the Outlaws. Elias made 29 saves for the win.
Hargrave continues to climb in the Pacific Junior Hockey League scoring race, as the Outlaws forward now has 18 points in 16 games to sit 14th overall. Clease also remains red-hot, and now has collected 16 points in 16 games. He’s second in the PJHL amongst all rookies and tied for 19th in league scoring.
The Outlaws are currently tied for first in the Harold Brittain conference with the Ridge Meadows Flames at 16 points, but the Flames have three games in hand. Mission and Ridge Meadows are also one point up on the Langley Trappers.
The Outlaws took on the Trappers on Wednesday night, but results were not available at press time. The team then hosts the White Rock Whalers on Saturday. Faceoff is set for 6:45 p.m. at the MLC.
