On Saturday night the Mission City Outlaws were looking to get back in the win column when they took on the Port Moody Panthers at the Port Moody Arena. The Outlaws were coming into the contest having lost to the Abbotsford Pilots the night before 4-1 and you knew that would leave a bad taste in the mouth of the Outlaws.
For the second straight game, Mission City would surrender the first goal in the game to their opponent but a goal from Brody Dyck, his second in as many games would tie things up for the Outlaws and the 2 teams would end the opening frame in a 1-1 tie.
The Outlaws would capitalize on the power play in the 2nd on a goal from Bryce Pisiak and you could really see things start to open up offensively for Mission City as they quickly found themselves ahead 3-1 before Port Moody would have an answer back on a broken play in front of the Outlaws net and former Aldergrove Kodiak Dryden Wust would get the Panthers back within 1 goal. A quick answer back from the Outlaws when Tristan Dundas would find the back of the net on the power play once again and the Outlaws wouldn’t look back from there. Mission City would score twice more in the middle frame with goals from Sammy Zeinab and Baylee Wright and take a commanding 5-2 lead into the final frame of regulation.
The Outlaws would get one more for good measure as Brock Padgham split the defense and buried it for the 6-2 victory.
With the win, Mission City extends their lead above the Harold Brittain Conference by 10 points over the 2nd place Aldergrove Kodiaks with a record of 12-3-0-1 for 25 points.
Jeff Veitch picked up his first win of the season between the pipes for the Mission City Outlaws since returning from a stint in the Junior A ranks.
