On Friday night the Mission City Outlaws cruised down the Lougheed hwy to Maple Ridge to take on the Ridge Meadow Flames looking for their first win of the season. The last 2 games were an example of just how lethal the Outlaws will be this season with their never give up mentality.
The first period would end in a scoreless tie and things would definitely pick up in the second when on the man advantage the Outlaws would get on the board with a goal from Holden Wilkerson, his second of the year, with Cameron Bertsch and Jonathan Philley with the helper. The Flames would answer back with 2 goals of their own taking the lead but in the dying minutes of the second, Wilkerson would get his second of the night and knot things up at 2 after 2.
To the third and a 2-2 tie, Nolan Dyck would get his first of the season putting the Outlaws up by 1. With just :48 seconds left in regulation, Mission City would find themselves in some penalty trouble and had to try and hold on to their one goal lead by being down 2 men in a 5 on 3 scenario and the Outlaws would rally to hold on for the first victory of the young season.
Jeffrey Veitch would get the win in just his second appearance between the pipes for the Outlaws. Just a great showing by the youngster from Mission.
With the win, Mission City sits in fourth in the Harold Brittain Conference.
Next up for the Outlaws is an old rivalry renewed as the team will host the Abbotsford Pilots at 7:15pm at the Mission Leisure Centre on Thursday September 26th.
As for now your up to date. See you at the rink.
