sports@mapleridgenews.com

The Ridge Meadows Flames had a win and a loss last week, sliding back into second place in the Harold Brittain Conference.

The Flames drummed the Surrey Knights 8-1 on Friday night at Planet Ice Maple Ridge, in a game where they outshot the visitors 62-13.

It was a night for padding point totals, as rookie Jarod McKay had a four-point night with a goal and three assists.

Super rookie Jayden Genberg scored a hat trick, giving him 12 goals and 24 points in 22 games this year. That puts among the top 20 scorers in the league, third in the Pacific Junior Hockey League among rookies, and third on his team.

Singlets were scored by Ian MacDonald, Logan Hunter, Liam Evenson and Ryley Lanthier, and Paul Tucek got the win in net.

The Richmond Sockeyes snapped a string of six unbeaten games by the Flames, when they beat them on Thursday night by a score of 4-1.

Lanthier scored the only goal for the Flames.

The Flames next game will be Friday, when they host the fourth-place Aldergrove Kodiaks.

It will be the annual Teddy Bear toss night, when all fans are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or new packaged toy, to be thrown onto the ice when the Flames score their first goal of the game. They will be collected and donated to local children at Christmas through local charities.

• Puck drop is 7:30 p.m. at Cam Neely Arena.
