Chilliwack Chiefs take two from Mainland division foes

A winning weekend saw the BCHL team top the Surrey Eagles 4-3 and Coquitlam Express 6-5.

The Coquitlam Express gave the Chilliwack Chiefs a tougher-than-expected battle Saturday night at Prospera Centre, but the final result was the same as it usually is when these teams meet, a Chilliwack win.

Anthony Vincent scored the decisive goal midway through the third period of a 6-5 Chiefs triumph that capped off a two-win weekend.

Captain Will Calverley had the overtime winner Friday night as Chilliwack dumped Surrey 4-3 at the South Surrey Arena, with Bryan Allbee, Adam Berg and Jared Turcotte also lighting the lamp. Chiefs netminder Daniel Chenard stopped 38 of 41 pucks as his team was out-shot 41-26.

Chenard started the Coquitlam game as the backup, but was called into action after starter Mathieu Caron yielded three goals on six shots. Chenard stemmed the bleeding, stopping 23 of 25 pucks the rest of the way. Berg and Turcotte scored first period goals for Chilliwack and Corey Andonovski, Kaden Pickering and Vincent scored in the second period.

Vincent’s third period goal put the Chiefs up 6-4 and they held on for the win, their fourth in their last five outings. The Chiefs improved their record to 11-8-1-2, and while they still don’t appear to be at their best, they’re now second in the division, just three points back of Langley.

Chilliwack is home Friday night, hosting the Rivermen at Prospera Centre with a 7 p.m. start.
