Chilliwack Jets

Mission continues to ground Chilliwack Jets in early-season PJHL action

The teams have met six times this season with the Mission City Outlaws winning five of them

Are we sick of the Mission City Outlaws yet?

The Chilliwack Jets (1-4-0-1) must be, after dropping two more games to their PJHL foes on the weekend. That makes it six games against their regional cohort rivals since the season started 17 days ago, with five of them losses.

———————————————

Saturday night’s game at the Mission Leisure Centre was a 6-3 win for the Outlaws.

The expansion Jets stuck with their veteran foes for 40 minutes, trailing by just one goal heading to the third period. But Mission scored twice in the final frame to break it open.

The score was tied 2-2 after one period.

Lyndon Schroeder (Chilliwack) opened the scoring with a power play goal at 4:16, followed by a Mission goal by Justin Hargrave (Abbotsford) at 6:01.

Another Chilliwack power play goal, from Caleb Garet (Okotoks, Alberta), gave them a brief 2-1 lead that was erased at 16:50 on a snipe by Mission’s Cole Moffat (Pitt Meadows).

The Outlaws got second period goals by Byron Beytell-Johnson (Aldergrove) and Dylan Tonks (Chilliwack), answered by Garet, and led 4-3 after two periods.

Joshua Romeyn (Chilliwack) gave Mission a 5-3 cushion 13:18 into period three and Hargrave’s second of the game into an empty net at 19:13 wrapped up the scoring.

Brayden Melnyk (Chilliwack) stopped 29 of 34 pucks in the Jets net while Brian Dale (Mission) turned aside 24 pucks for the Outlaws.

The three stars were Tonks (first), Garet (second) and Chase Newman (Mission, third).

The Jets forced Sunday’s rematch at the Sardis Sports Complex into overtime before falling 3-2.

The teams traded first period goals, with Owen Elson (Mission) scoring for the Outlaws and Garet replying for Chilliwack. They traded goals again in the middle frame with Trey Fischer (Chilliwack) briefly giving the Jets a 2-1 lead before Tonks struck for the Outlaws.

After a scoreless third period, the game ended 2:15 into OT on a goal by Hargrave.

Melnyk stopped 27 of 30 shots for Chilliwack while Mission’s Daniel Zuvic (Maple Ridge) stopped 25 of 27 shots.

The three stars were Hargrave (first), Garet (second) and Fischer (third).

The Jets finally see someone else this weekend as they face off against the Abbotsford Pilots.

Abby has yet to play a game this season.

The game will be Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Sardis Sports Complex.
