Outlaws home woes continue

Mission has now dropped four straight at the MLC

Success on home ice continues to be an issue for the Mission City Outlaws, as they lost 2-1 to the Abbotsford Pilots at the Mission Leisure Centre on Saturday.

The Outlaws last all three home games they played in November, and haven’t posted a victory on home ice since Oct. 28.

Mission fell behind 2-0 early to the Pilots on Saturday, and weren’t able to recover. Terrance Josephson scored his first career Pacific Junior Hockey League goal in the second period to get the Outlaws on the board.

Mission goalie Matthew Trulsen was solid in net, making 27 saves in a losing cause. The Outlaws power play went one-for-seven with the man advantage, while allowing one power play goal on the three times they were shorthanded.

The club’s record dropped to 10 wins and 16 losses after the setback to the Pilots, and they remain in third place in the Harold Brittain conference.

In other Outlaws news, the team made a pair of moves prior to the PJHL’s trade deadline on Dec. 1.

Mission acquired forward Dawson Campbell from the Ridge Meadows Flames in exchange for future considerations. Campbell, a Chilliwack native, collected three points and 30 penalty minutes in 15 games with the Flames this season. He also suited up for the Port Moody Panthers in eight games last season.

The Outlaws also picked up the aforementioned Josephson from the Revelstoke Grizzlies of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League for future considerations. Josephson, 18, played his minor hockey on the Sunshine Coast.

Mission next hosts the Surrey Knights on Saturday night at the MLC. Face-off is scheduled for 6:45 p.m.
