Mission earns one of four points on weekend home games

Outlaws lose big to North Vancouver, bounce back against Delta on Saturday

The Mission City Outlaws’ weekend two-game home stand didn’t produce the desired results.

The Outlaws hosted the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Friday and the Delta Ice Hawks on Saturday at the Mission Leisure Centre, and collected just one out of a possible four points.

Friday’s game got ugly for the home squad, as the Outlaws were outclassed 11-0 by North Vancouver.

The Wolf Pack scored six goals in the first period and five goals in the third to earn the win.

North Vancouver’s Lucas Barker continued his early-season scoring tear, collecting five points against Mission to add to his 11 other points on the season to total 16 – which ranks second in the Pacific Junior Hockey League.

Mission starting goalie Isaac Elias was yanked in the third period, after allowing six goals on 28 shots.

His replacement Cole Muys did not fare better, as he allowed goals on all five shots he faced.

The goalies did not receive much support from their teammates, as Mission was outshot 33-13 in the contest.

The Outlaws dusted themselves off after the lopsided loss and then played a solid game against Delta the next night.

Delta’s Brice Kemp opened the scoring at 2:55 of the first period, but Mission’s Kyle Sackmann tied the game at 11:50 in the second.

Dawson Campbell and Justin Hargrave drew the assists.

Hargrave put the Outlaws up early into the third, but Delta managed to even the game at 15:56.

Two periods of five-minute overtime wasn’t enough, and the game ended in a 1-1 tie.

Elias was excellent between the pipes on Saturday, stopping 36 of 38 shots and earning the game’s first star nod.

Mission was outshot 38-18 in the game.

The Outlaws sit in fourth place in the Harold Brittain conference with a record of 1-3-2.

Mission next travels to White Rock to battle the Whalers on Saturday.

The team’s next home game occurs on Sunday, when the Surrey Knights come to the MLC. Face-off is set for 8:30 p.m.
