Ridge Meadows Flames beat Knights, lose to Jets

Host Mission City Outlaws Friday at Cam Neely Arena

The Ridge Meadows Flames had a win and a loss over the weekend, as they beat the Surrey Knights 8-2 on Friday, but lost to the Chilliwack Jets 2-1 on Sunday.

In Friday’s home date, Jack Steffens had a five-point game to lead the Flames attack. The outburst of offence – a goal and four assists – makes the Coquitlam resident a point-a-game player after 25 contests this year.

Defenceman Matthew Tyszka and forwards Brenchan Chabot and Ryan Denney each had two goals, and Craig Schouten also scored.

The Flames lost 2-1 in Sardis, despite outshooting Chilliwack 44-40.

Ryan Denney had the lone goal for the Flames, scored on the power play assisted by Nic Amsler and Nic Yu.

Rookie goaltender Cameron Connelly had his record drop to 10-4 on the season, despite making 38 saves on 40 shots, and boosting his save percentage to 0.918 on the year. His stats put him among the top four goaltenders in the league this season.
