Ridge Meadows Flames run winning streak to five games

Junior Bs host Steelers on Friday night

With two more wins on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Ridge Meadows Flames have run their winning streak to five straight games.

Maple Ridge’s junior B squad beat the still-winless Surrey Knights 11-0 at the North Surrey Rec Centre on Tuesday, and then on Wednesday night beat the Kodiaks 4-1 in Aldergrove.

Paul Tucek was named the game’s first star for his 30-save shutout in Surrey. He had to weather five Surrey power plays to protect his second scoreless game of the season.

The Flames only led 3-0 until the final two minutes of the second period when they blew it open with two more late goals for a 5-0 lead after two. Then it turned into a route.

Four Flames had three-point nights. Taylor Seganfreddo and Halen Cordoni both had two goals and an assist, while their linemate Liam Evanson had three assists. Ian MacDonald had a goal and two assists. Jayden Genberg and Cameron Kovesdi both lit the lamp twice, while Ryley Lanthier had a goal and an assist and Jarod McKay also scored.

Ridge won a close game Aldergrove. The score was tied 1-1 after the first period, with Daniel Chifan getting the Flames tally. Logan Hunter scored what would hold up as the game winner on the power play early in the second. Cordoni scored an insurance marker, and Seganfreddo got an empty netter to keep his goal scoring streak alive at four games and six goals.

Cooper Anderson got the win in net, with 26 saves on 27 shots.

With a record of 17-7, the Flames have also moved into a tie for first place in the Harold Brittain Conference with Abbotsford, although the Pilots have a game in hand.

The Delta Ice Hawks are running away with the Tom Shaw conference and the overall Pacific Junior Hockey League standings with a record of 20-2.

• The Flames host the Grandview Steelers on Friday night at Cam Neely Arena, with puck drop at 7:30 p.m.
