The Surrey goaltender faced 40 shots in the Surrey net and turned aside 38, doing his best work in the final 40 minutes as the Chiefs turned up the pressure.

Chilliwack out-shot the Eagles 19-9 in the second period and 13-6 in the third, but couldn’t put a puck past the red-hot stopper when they needed to.

Surrey’s Christian Fitzgerald scored the game winning goal 7:58 into period three.

The Eagles led 2-0 in this one after a pair of goals by Hudson Schandor. The North Vancouver product scored on a first period power play, and doubled the lead with an even-strength tally at 10:52 of period two.

Chilliwack battled back to tie the game on goals by Clark Nelson and Jack Agnew, both players scoring their first goals of the playoffs.

The Chiefs kept coming in the third period, but Scarfone kept them at bay.

Chilliwack goalie Mathieu Caron was called t0 the bench for the extra attacker with 1:13 to play, but his team ran out of time.

The three stars were Schandor (first), Nelson (second) and Surrey’s Gabe Schovanek (third).

The Fortis B.C. Energy Player of the Game was Chiefs captain Nathan Kelly.

The Eagles move on to face the Coquitlam Express in round two of the BCHL playoffs.
