The Ridge Meadows Flames got a late  field goal to down the North Delta Devils 10-7 in a hockey game with a football score on Friday night.

Scoring leader Marco Ballarin had three goals and three assists for the local junior B team, and moved into 10th place in scoring in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League with 25 points (13 goals) in 19 games.

It was points night for several Flames: Dale Howell, a goal and four assists; Boston Colley, two goals and two assists; Danny Wilson, three assists; Grant Rostvig, two goals; captain Travis Oddy, a goal and an assist; and Shawn Tilton, a goal.

Goaltender Tyler Read allowed six goals on 23 shots, then Kurt Klimek came into the game and stopped six of seven to get the win.

Ridge led 3-0 after first, but North Delta tied the game six minutes into the second, and the score was tied 6-6  after two periods. Ridge  then came out and got four unanswered goals.

The Flames now have six wins, 11 losses, two overtime losses and a tie in a league that does not settle scores with a shootout.

This weekend, the Flames have a pair of home games.

Ridge hosts the North Vancouver Wolf Pack, the fifth-place team in the 10-team league, on Friday night at Planet Ice, at 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, they will host the second-place Abbotsford Pilots in a 7:45 p.m. start.
