The Ridge Meadows Flames put up two seven-goal wins during the past week of Pacific Junior Hockey League action.

First came a 7-2 victory over the Sockeyes in Richmond on Thursday, then another 7-2 win over the Port Moody Panthers on Friday night in Maple Ridge.

In Richmond, Cameron Alder had two goals and an assist, Brandon Galbraith scored twice, and Halen Cordoni, Alex Pistilli and affiliate player Ryan MacDonald also scored. Liam Murphy stopped 47 of 49 shots in the Ridge net.

On Friday, Alexander Furlan had a goal and two assists, Nolan Ferguson scored twice and Boston Colley, Nicholas Maydaniuk, Tristan Tressel and Cordoni each had a goal and an assist as the Ridge Meadows Flames defeated Panthers.

Jason Sandhu kicked out 30 shots to record his seventh victory of the season.

The Flames are in Aldergrove tonight (Wedesday) to take on the Kodiaks, and potentially make up some ground in the battle for third place in the Harold Brittain Conference.

Each team has played 37 games, and the Kodiaks lead 40 to 37 in the standings.

With just five games left in the regular season schedule, the Flames next home game will be Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Cam Neely Arena, when they host the Mission City Outlaws, who are in first place in the PJHL, and riding an eight-game winning streak.
