Goal scoring continues to be an early-season issue for the Mission City Outlaws.

For the second time this season, the Outlaws were left scoreless, falling 4-0 to the Abbotsford Pilots on home ice on Saturday.

Mission trailed 3-0 after the first period, and then allowed another goal in the second. Penalties also hurt the Outlaws, as they were penalized seven times and allowed one goal shorthanded.

The Outlaws were also outshot 49-27, and starting goalie Matthew Trulsen made 45 saves in the loss.

The shutout defeat comes off a strong performance for the team in Aldergrove on Wednesday, as the Outlaws took care of the Kodiaks 3-1.

Mission got goals from Ryan Sharma, Baylee Wright and Liam Robinson. The Outlaws scored twice with the man advantage, but were outshot 44-30. Trulsen made 43 saves in the win.

The Outlaws’ record now sits at three wins, four losses and one overtime loss this season, and they are in fourth place in the Harold Brittain conference.

Mission next hosts the conference-leading Ridge Meadows Flames on Saturday. Faceoff is set for 6:45 p.m. at the Mission Leisure Centre.

In other Outlaws news, the club announced its leadership group for the 2016-17 season. Sharma is the captain, with Kyle Lennea and Michal Holud as the assistants. Justin Bowerman and Sammy Zeinab were named the alternate assistants. For more on the Outlaws, visit the website at
