Outlaws split pair of road games

First place club loses in Abbotsford, wins in Port Moody

Mission's Mackenzie Wight beats out an Abbotsford defender for the puck during PJHL action on Friday.

After dropping just their third game of the season on Friday, the Mission City Outlaws bounced back big on Saturday against the Port Moody Panthers.

The Outlaws exploded for four goals in the second period, en route to a 6-2 win over the Panthers. Forwards Baylee Wright and Brock Padgham both had three-point nights (one goal, two assists), and other Mission goal scorers included: Sammy Zeinab, Tristen Dundas, Bryce Pisiak and Brody Dyck. Goalie Jeffrey Veitch stopped 25 of 27 shots in the win.

Mission went two-for-nine on the power play and killed all five man advantages for Port Moody.

The win comes off a 4-1 loss in Abbotsford on Friday that saw the Outlaws get into penalty trouble for most of the game. Mission was shorthanded eight times, and compiled 34 penalty minutes. The Outlaws fell behind 3-0 by the second period, but then Dyck got Mission to within two, before the Pilots added a goal in the third.

The Outlaws remain atop the Harold Brittain Conference and the Pacific Junior Hockey League after the weekend of action, with a record of 12 wins, three losses and one overtime loss. Mission battled the Aldergrove Kodiaks on Oct. 28 but details were not available at press time.

The Outlaws next host the Ridge Meadows Flames on Saturday, and then have a home stretch where they welcome the Panthers on Nov. 5, the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Nov. 7 and the Langley Knights on Nov. 14.
