The shots were fast and furious in an evenly matched home opener for the Aldergrove Kodiaks but the Mission City Outlaws were the ones to find the back of the net.

The Outlaws took the game 6-3, Sept. 9 at Aldergrove Arena before a full house of Junior B hockey fans.

Shots on goal were 38-37 in favour of the Outlaws but it was a couple of penalty kills which wore down the Kodiaks and gave the Outlaws the upper hand. The Outlaws scored in one of four power plays while the Kodiaks scratched for two.

The Outlaws were up 2-1 in the first period but the second period was a saw-off with two more goals for each team. The Outlaws scored at the six-minute mark of the third to bring it up to 5-3, and ended the night with an empty-netter for the win.

Mission’s first line of veterans did the yeoman’s work that night, with Ryan Sharma earning first star for two goals and David McGowan the second star for three assists.

On Saturday night, the  Outlaws hosted the Langley Knights in its home opener and ended up on the wrong side of a 4-3 score in overtime.

Kolby Steen, David McGowan and Kyle Lennea scored for Mission who had a 3-1 lead at one point in the game. However, Langley scored three straight to take the win.

The Outlaws played Thursday night, losing 4-1 to Richmond.

The Outlaws next home game is on Saturday, September 19 when the Aldergrove Kodiaks come to the Mission Leisure Centre arena.

Puck drops at 8 p.m.
