Road trip nets Rivermen four out of six points

Langley has four games remaining in regular season; post-season begins March 4

The Langley Rivermen won two out of three games as they gear up for the final week of the BCHL regular season.

The Rivermen doubled the Surrey Eagles 4-2 on Feb. 11 and blanked the Vernon Vipers 2-0 the following night.

Langley finished their three-game road trip with a 3-2 loss on Saturday night to the West Kelowna Warriors.

The results leave Langley with a 29-21-3-0 record and their 62 points means the team will — barring something completely unforeseen — finish the regular season in third place in the Mainland Division.

The second-place Wenatchee Wild have 69 points and two games in hand.

Langley has four games to go in the regular season.

Against the Eagles, Justin Szeto and Zac Masson staked the Rivermen to a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes. But Surrey struck twice in the first 6:24 to tie things up. However, John Schuldt and Zachary Bleuler tallied in the final 3:17 to give Langley the two points.

Bo Didur made 29 saves in the next game for the shutout while Jason O’Neill and Max Kaufman struck for the game’s only offence.

Langley’s quest for three wins in three nights was quashed by West Kelowna.

Matty Saharchuk and Trevor Ayre had the Rivermen goals.

Langley finishes the regular season with four games in the next six days.

They are in Prince George tomorrow (Thursday) to face the Spruce Kings and then in Coquitlam on Saturday against the Express.

The Rivermen host Victoria on Sunday at the Langley Events Centre (3 p.m.) before one more road game on Feb. 23 in Wenatchee. The BCHL regular season wraps up on Feb. 28.
