Jr. B Flames downed by Pilots 5-3

Ridge Meadows out-shot 44-14 in Friday’s road loss

Ridge Meadows Flames goalie Wesley McLeod had his work cut out for him Friday night as the Flames were out shot 44 to 14 by the Abbotsford Pilots in a 5-3 loss on the road.

McLeod managed to turn aside 39 shots, but the lack of offence at the other end of ice meant the young goalie was stuck with the loss.

The Pilots opened the scoring late in the first period with a pair of goals from former Flame Ryan Stewart and Brett Kolins.

The Pilots took a 3-0 lead six minutes into the middle frame before Paul Piluso got the Flames on the board with a powerplay goal late in the period.

Shane Harle helped the Flames draw within one with an even-strength goal six minutes into the third period. The Pilots regained their two-goal lead two minutes later, only to have Matt Bissett score to bring the Flames back within one less than a minute after that.

However, the Flames would not be able to close the gap further as Kyle Star potted his second goal of the night for the Pilots with seven minutes left to play to ensure the win for Abbotsford.

Harle earned third star honours for his two-point effort, scoring a goal an adding an assist. Piluso also had a two-point night, while Sean Pesut, Reece Rivard, Danny Brandys, and Keegan Hunter each had assists.

The Flames were one for three on the powerplay, and managed to kill four of five Abbotsford powerplays.

The Flames return home this Friday (Nov. 18) to host the North Delta Devils at Planet Ice in Maple Ridge. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
