After watching their two-goal lead evaporate in a span of 34 seconds, the Langley Knights regrouped and reeled off the game’s final six goals as they extinguished the Ridge Meadows Flames 9-3.

The victory on Thursday (Oct. 2) night at the George Preston Recreation Centre moves the Knights into top spot of the Harold Brittain Conference in the junior B Pacific Junior Hockey League.

Langley improved to 4-3-0-0 and their eight points have them tied with the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

Langley tacked on two more to lead 7-3 after 40 minutes and added two more goals in the third for the rout.

Colin Catchpole led the Knights with two goals and two assists, while De Waal had a three-point game.
