The Ridge Meadows Flames got back in the win column with a 4-1 win over the Abbotsford Pilots on Saturday night.
Friday night they had lost 5-2 to the Langley Knights – the top team in the Harold Brittain Conference with a record of 14-10-1-1.
That deafeat marked their fifth loss in a row in Pacific Junior Hockey League action.
But on Saturday night, the Flames got it done. The local junior Bs shut down the Pilot power play.
It had nothing to show for six man-advantage situations.
Flames goaltender Kurt Klimek allowed just one goal on 25 shots.
Grant Rostvig scored 37 seconds into the game, and later added an assist for a two-point game. Nicholas Maydaniuk also had a goal and an assist, Dale Howell had two assists, and Joe Olson and Bradley Crompton also scored.
Crompton and Boston Colley both scored against Langley.
Tyler Read made 32 saves on 36 shots.
The Flames, now 9-16 on the season, have a busy stretch ahead of them. They will have a rematch with the Knights on Thursday, host the Richmond Sockeyes on Friday night at Planet Ice, and then take on the Grandview Steelers at the Burnaby Winter Club on Sunday night, for their third game in four nights.
Friday night’s game will start at 7:30 p.m.
The Sockeyes are in the hunt for first overall in the PJHL, with a record of 21-5-0-2, so it will be a tough test for the Flames.
