Four goals in seven-minute span the difference as Victoria blanks Langley 4-0

  • Feb. 22, 2016 11:00 a.m.

Seven minutes sunk the Langley Rivermen in their home regular season finale.

The Rivermen surrendered four goals in a 7:06 span of the first period on Sunday afternoon to fall 4-0 to the Victoria Grizzlies at the Langley Events Centre.

The Langley junior A hockey club was coming off impressive back-to-back 5-1 road victories on Feb. 18 in Prince George and Feb. 20 in Coquitlam.

The results give Langley a record of 31-22-3-1 and 66 points with one game to play — on the road on Feb. 23 against the Wenatchee Wild.

The Rivermen are locked into the No. 3 seed for the BCHL’s Mainland Division and will open the BCHL playoffs on March 4 on the road.

In the win over Prince George, Adam Sinclair and Max Kaufman scored 81 seconds apart early in the third period to break open a 2-1 game against the Spruce Kings.

Matthew Graham, Justin Szeto and Torrin White had the other goals with Graham finishing with a goal and two helpers.

Nick Trenciansky stopped 33 of 34 shots in the win.

Bo Didur got the call against Coquitlam and made 20 saves for the win.

Justin Fregona and Graham led the offence with a goal and two assists apiece while White, Sinclair and Dominic Franco had one goal apiece.
