Chilliwack Jets net first PJHL win against Mission City Outlaws

The expansion junior B team went 1-1 on opening weekend with a victory over their veteran foes

Chilliwack’s Trey Fischer etched his name into the record book Saturday night, scoring the first goal in Chilliwack Jets history.

The junior B team played its first regular season PJHL game on the road in Mission, and earned its first ever win with a 5-4 overtime triumph.

Fischer opened the scoring unassisted at 10:15 of the first period.

Treyson Frost (Chilliwack) also scored in the opening frame, but Mission led 3-2 through 20 minutes on goals by Dylan Stoltz (Abbotsford), Dawson Reinfjell (Abbotsford) and Cayden Karcioglu (Chilliwack).

Jets forward Drew Dornan (Abbotsford) scored back to back goals at 2:26 and 5:59 of the third period to give his team a short-lived lead, but Justin Plett (Abbotsford) replied 69 seconds later to send the game to OT.

In extra time, Frost parked the winning goal behind Outlaws goaltender Daniel Zuvic (Maple Ridge), who stopped 24 of 28 shots on the night.

Earning the win in the Chilliwack net, Dawson Pelletier (Hope) stopped 20 pucks.

Dornan scored the lone goal for the Jets in Sunday’s rematch as Mission gained revenge with a 7-1 win at the Sardis Sports Complex.

Dornan’s goal came at the 8:47 mark of period three with Carter Anderson and Trey Fischer drawing the assists.

Dylan Stoltz (Abbotsford) and Dylan Tonks (Chilliwack) scored two goals apiece for the visitors. Blake Bryce (Chilliwack), Mackenzie Adams (Pitt Meadows) and Ethan Kitsch (Maple Ridge) also popped pucks past the Jets netminding duo of Pelletier (starter) and Brayden Melnyk (backup).

“We had a really strong effort with a great come from behind win on Saturday night,” said Jets hockey boss Clayton Robinson. “A great team effort. Sunday showed that we are a young group and we need to learn to be consistent and compete at all times to be successful.

“We were playing a veteran team and for us having 13 rookies I thought being 1-1 after the weekend wasn’t bad. But we have lots to work on this week.”

The Jets and Outlaws meet again this weekend with another home-and-home. Chilliwack visits Mission Saturday and hosts their cohort foes Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Sardis Sports Complex.
