Jr. B Flames fall to Outlaws

Shorts: Maple Ridge golfer second in Pacific Western Athletic Association.

The Ridge Meadows Flames surrendered four goals in the third period in a 6-1 loss to the Mission Outlaws on Friday at Planet Ice.

The defeat dropped to the local junior B hockey team to 3-3 for the season, tied for second with Langley in the Harrold Brittain Conference.

Mission scored twice in the third period, but Boston Colley’s second period marker, from Joe Olson and Andrew Castagna, brought the Flames to within a goal.

The Outlaws, however, opened the third frame with three goals in 1:11, including two from Landen Matechuk 17 seconds apart.

Flames goalie Kurt Klimek was pulled after the first one, and replaced by Tyler Read.

Mission added another goal later in the period, in which they were outshot 13-12. The Flames outshot Mission 41-32 for the game.

The Flames play the Knights in Langley on Thursday, then host the Richmond Sockeyes, first in the PJHL at 6-1, on Friday at Planet Ice, 7:30 p.m.
