Outlaws split pair of games

Mission defeats Surrey, falls to Ridge Meadows

A rare Tuesday night game didn’t prove to be lucky for the Mission City Outlaws.

The club hosted the Ridge Meadows Flames at the Mission Leisure Centre on Tuesday, but a late goal by the visitors sunk the Outlaws two-game winning streak.

Mission’s Maximilian Corazza scored the lone goal of the first period, but the Flames answered back with two goals in the second. Kyle Mooney then tied the game up late in the second.

The Flames scored the only goal of the game’s final frame at 12:01 to earn the win.

Mission goalie Matthew Trulsen was solid in between the pipes, making 48 saves in a losing cause.

The loss comes off a 5-1 win for the club over the Surrey Knights on Nov. 9. Mission dominated on the road in Surrey, spreading out five unanswered goals before allowing the Knights to break goalie Mitchell Davis’ shutout bid late in the third.

Outlaws goal scorers included: Michael Nemeth, Joshua Martin, Brayden Durante (two) and Chase Heslop. Corazza added two helpers, and Martin also had a pair of assists for a three-point night.

Mission’s power play was effective, going two-for-six with man advantage and the Outlaws killed all four penalties they received. Davis made 35 saves to earn his first career Pacific Junior Hockey League win.

Mission’s record moves to eight win and 14 losses on the season, and they remain in fourth place in the Harold Brittain conference.

Next up for the team is a game with the Abbotsford Pilots tonight (Friday) in Abbotsford. The Pilots have not yet lost on home ice this season, and the Outlaws will try to avoid being the tenth victim on the Pilots unbeaten home run.

Mission then hosts the top-team in the PJHL, the Delta Ice Hawks, on Saturday at the MLC. Face-off is set for 6:45 p.m.
