Flames rebound against Panthers

Team takes three of four points on weekend and keep pace in division

The Ridge Meadow Flames rebounded after a tough overtime loss the night before to knock off the Port Moody Panthers

7-4 Saturday, Nov. 7. The Flames game strolled into Port Moody looking for redemption after dropping a heartbreaking 4-3

decision to the Grandview Steelers the night before at Planet Ice.

The Flames battled back from an early two-goal deficit and Jake Holland scored with 47 seconds left in the third to make it 3-3, only to see rookie defenceman Daniel Kim called for a delay of game penalty just five seconds into the extra frame, resulting in a penalty shot.

Grandview’s Adam Rota buried the penalty shot, handing Flames’ netminder Jason Sandhu the loss after he turned aside 35 of the 39 shots he faced.

Bradley Crompton led the Flames with a goal and an assist.

The Flames wasted no time putting the tough loss behind them on Saturday in Port Moody, building up an early 3-0 lead just six minutes into the game on goals by Cameron Alder, Andrew Strelezki and Nicholas Maydaniuk.

The Flames built a 5-2 lead midway through the second before Port Moody mounted a comeback, cutting the lead to 5-4 with three-and-a-half minutes left in the period.

Flames Halen Cordoni scored the first of his two powerplay goals to put the game away with just more than two minutes left in the second.

The Flames went 4-8 on the powerplay, while holding the Panthers scoreless on six tries.
