It was a night of redemption for the Mission Outlaws.
The local hockey squad defeated the North Vancouver Wolf Pack 7-6 in a shoot out to improve its record to 1-1 at the Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial hockey tournament. It also drops the Wolf Pack to a record of 0-2 so far in the four team round-robin event.
Just over a week ago, the Wolf Pack eliminated the Outlaws from the league championship, making tonight’s win extra special for the Mission players.
While thrilled with the victory, it wasn’t easy. Brock Padgham scored the winner in a long shoot out after the squads could not decide anything in overtime.
Other goal scorers for the Outalaws were Justin Bowerman with one, Kolby Steen with two and Bryce Pisiak with a hat trick.
There is no time for the Outlaws to rest as the squad prepares for a must win game on Sunday night against the Cambell River Storm. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Mission Leisure Centre.
In earlier action on Saturday, Cambel River defeated the Kimberley Dynamiters 4-3 in overtime.
