Outlaws end five-game losing streak

Mission’s home struggles continue despite win in Aldergrove

The Mission City Outlaws bumped a five-game winning streak on Nov. 21, but the team’s struggles at the Mission Leisure Centre continued on Saturday.

Mission traveled to Aldergrove on Nov. 21, and sparked by a strong first period skated away with a 3-2 win.

Chase Newman put the Outlaws up 1-0 at 5:37 of the first, but the Kodiaks tied the game up on the power play at 11:01. Lucas Anselmo then put the Outlaws up 2-1 after 20 minutes.

Nicholas Thomson made it a two-goal lead midway through the second period, and the Kodiaks drew within one again at 15:50 but both goalies shut the door in the final period to finish with a 3-2 final.

Outlaws goalie Matthew Trulsen made 35 saves to record his fourth win on the season.

The club returned home on Saturday to host the top team in the Pacific Junior Hockey League – the North Vancouver Wolf Pack – and fell 5-1.

The Wolf Pack led 3-1 after the first, with Mission’s Chase Newman scoring the home team’s lone goal, and the visitors added two more goals in the final frame. Trulsen was busy in the loss, making 39 saves as the Outlaws were outshot 44-24.

Mission has not won a game on home ice since Oct. 27.

Mission has just one win in November, and put the month behind them on Wednesday after battling the Langley Trappers. Results from that game were not available at press time.

The Outlaws record sits at 6-14-3, and they sit in fifth place in the PJHL’s Harold Brittain conference and 11th overall in the 12-team league.

The team next hosts the Aldergrove Kodiaks on Saturday at the MLC. Face-off is set for 6:45 p.m. The Outlaws busy week continues with road games in Port Moody on Monday and Ladner on Tuesday.
