Mission Outlaws extend unbeaten streak to seven

Mission ties Port Moody 6-6 on Saturday, remain in second place

The Mission City Outlaws unbeaten streak continued over the weekend, but the club had to settle for a tie.

Mission traveled to Port Moody on Saturday to take on the Panthers, and an old fashioned shootout followed, with the clubs playing to a 6-6 tie.

Port Moody took over in the first period, firing 19 shots at the Mission goalie Isaac Elias and holding a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes.

The second period was all Outlaws, as Mission scored two goals on the power play and one on a penalty shot. Justin Hargrave scored at 1:13. with Justin Plett converting a penalty shot at 9:55. Plett scored again at 13:47 as the Outlaws power play connected for the second time in one period.

The offence for both teams then exploded in the third, with the Outlaws leading for the majority of it but the Panthers continuing to claw back. Mission had leads of 4-3, 5-4, 6-4 and 6-5 but Port Moody continued answering back. The Outlaws got goals from Mackenzie Adams, a power play goal from Plett to complete his hat trick and Joshua Mainhout.

Nothing was solved in the overtime period, with the Outlaws being forced to kill a penalty late into the extra frame. Special teams were excellent for Mission, as the power play went three for five and the penalty kill was perfect.

Plett had a four point night, while forward Dylan Tonks recorded three assists. Elias made 35 saves in the tie and Mission outshot Port Moody 49-41.

With the single point, the Outlaws stretched their unbeaten streak to seven games, and they have not lost since Dec. 14. The team remains in second place in the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s Harold Brittain conference, with a record of 20-15-3-1.

Hargrave continues to lead the team in scoring, with 39 points in 38 games. He sits in 15th place in league scoring.

The Outlaws next took on the Surrey Knights in Surrey on Thursday night, but results were not available at press time. The next home game for the club is on Saturday, when the Richmond Sockeyes come to town. Face-off is set for 6:45 p.m. at the Mission Leisure Centre.
