Scratching Heads a Plenty

After Thursday nights game the Mission City Outlaws found themselves on yet another end of the losing side of the scoreboard as the visiting Grandview Steelers handed the Outlaws a 6-1 loss on home ice.

It may sound like a skipping record but the main question for the Outlaws coaching staff is what do they have to do to get a win at the Mission Leisure Centre.  The head scratching continues as well for the team when it comes to stringing a few wins together in a row.  Having a great showing on Sunday afternoon with a 4-2 win, one would have to think that maybe this team was over the hump and really ready to make a push.  Unfortunately not the case for the Outlaws.

Newcomer Brandon McReynolds had the lone goal for the Outlaws.  Always great to get your a goal when you debut with your new team.  In his first game, McReynolds saw more ice time than when he was with the North Van Wolf Pack and it will be interesting to see how he makes the most of this opportunities.  

It was a 2 goal night for Quinn Lenihan of the Grandview Steelers who has been a real thorn in the side of the Mission City Outlaws in the 3 meetings these 2 teams have met.  Lenihan has 6 points in 3 games played against the Outlaws.  The 2 goal performance earned Lenihan first star honours.

The Outlaws won’t have to wait long to try and get back on the winning side of things as Mission City will make the trip to the Minoru Arena in Richmond to take on the Sockeyes.  Not going to be an easy task for the Outlaws but the road record has been good this year for Mission City.  Game time is a rare 5:45 PM start on Saturday.

As for now you’re up to date.  See you at the rink.
