The Langley Knights celebrate one of their seven goals in a season-opening 7-2 win over the Mission City Outlaws last week at the George Preston Recreation Centre.

Flames burn Knights in third period

Langley surrenders four goals in third period, falls 7-2 to Ridge Meadows

One night after scoring seven goals in victory, the Langley Knights mustered just a pair their next time out, falling 7-2 to the Ridge Meadows Flames.

The Knights had opened the Pacific Junior Hockey League season with a 7-4 win over the Mission City Outlaws on Sept. 11 at the George Preston Recreation Centre.

But on the road the next night at Maple Ridge’s Planet Ice, Langley’s offence went dry over the final 40 minutes while the Flames scored once in the second and four more times in the third.

A big difference was the power play as Ridge Meadows went 5-for-9 while the Knights were 1-for-6.

Levi De Waal and Dylan McCann had the Langley goals.

The Knights are back in action on Thursday as they host the Abbotsford Pilots.

Game time is at 7:30 p.m. at the Preston Centre.
