Knights cool Flames 9-3

Langley remains perfect at George Preston Recreation Centre with fourth straight home-ice victory

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 was up 3-1 after one period but the Flames struck early in the second to tie things up. But from that point on, it was all Knights as Levi De Waal scored twice to give the home side the lead for good.

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.

Jacob Fricks (one goal, two assists), Jackson Surbey (one goal, one assist), Carson Rose (one goal, one assist), Donovan Shambeau (one goal), Mitchell Biermann (one goal), Dylan McCann (two assists), Oliver Alcock (two assists) and Iasiah Piers (one assist) also found the scoresheet.

Nickolas Trenciansky stopped 33 shots for the win.

The Knights face the Kodiaks at Aldergrove Arena on Oct. 8.

The team’s next home game is Oct. 9 versus the Delta Ice Hawks. The Knights are a perfect 4-0-0-0 at home.
