Outlaws lit up for eight goals twice

Mission drops pair of games to Richmond, White Rock

The losses continue to mount for the Mission City Outlaws, and the club allowed eight goals on back-to-back games on Saturday and Monday.

Mission’s struggles on home ice resumed on Saturday, as the club was blanked 8-0 by the Richmond Sockeyes at the Mission Leisure Centre.

The Outlaws allowed three in the first period, one in the second and four more in the final frame and managed just 22 shots on goal.

Mission goalie Isaac Elias was yanked just 2:09 into the game after allowing three goals on four shots.

Andrew Edgecombe, making his Pacific Junior Hockey League debut, stopped 42 of 47 shots in relief. The Outlaws have still won just three games on home ice this season, and haven’t won at the MLC since Oct. 27.

The Outlaws then travelled to White Rock on Monday to take on the expansion Whalers and fell 8-3.

Mission’s Nicholas Thomson scored a late power play goal in the first period to make it a 2-1 game after 20 minutes.

The Outlaws then opened the second period with goals from Dawson Campbell and Chase Newman, but White Rock spread out six goals over the final two periods to earn the 8-3 win.

Mission’s penalty killing took a big hit, as White Rock was a perfect four-for-four with the man advantage, including three power play markers in the third period.

Outlaws forward Brendan Mongey collected 25 penalty minutes, including a match penalty and a non-fighting game misconduct in the third period. He was also assessed a 10-minute misconduct in the second period.

Elias made 18 saves in the loss, but Mission outshot the Whalers 35-26.

The pair of losses drops the Outlaws’ record to 7-19-3 on the season, and they sit in fifth place in the Harold Brittain conference and 11th place overall in the PJHL.

Mission travelled to Richmond to take on the Sockeyes on Thursday night, but results were not available at press time. The Outlaws’ next home game occurs on Sunday, when the Surrey Knights come to town. Faceoff is set for 8 p.m.

Mission closes out the 2018 calendar with a home game against the Delta Ice Hawks on Dec. 22.
