Devils lose three away from home

A winless week for Pacific Junior Hockey League team

The North Delta Devils dropped three Pacific Junior Hockey League games one the road last week.

The Devils fell 3-2 to the Delta Ice Hawks last Tuesday in Ladner, then were drubbed 6-2 by the North Vancouver Wolf Pack Saturday in North Vancouver. Sunday afternoon in Burnaby, they dropped an 8-1 decision to the Grandview Steelers.

The Devils have slipped to 6-19-1 (won-lost-tied), and are 14 points out of a playoff position in the Tom Shaw Conference.

North Delta held the Ice Hawks to just 21 shots in Ladner, and won the special teams battle. Delta was scoreless on three powerplay chacnecs, while the Devils scored twice on nine powerplays.

Joshua Trisevic put the visitors up 1-0 with the only goal of the first period, with Jackson Surbey and Colin Catchpole earning assists. Tristan Craighead netted the second Devils goal late in the third period, which tied the game 2-2.

The Ice Hawks netted the winner with less than eight minutes to play. Dawson Aulenback was in the North Delta goal, making 18 saves on 21 shots.

Saturday against the Wolf Pack, North Delta fell behind 1-0 when former Devil Shane Kumar scored for North Vancouver. Catchpole tied the game 10 seconds later.

The Wolf Pack regained the lead with two unanswered second period goals, then were up 4-1 before Mitchell Biermann netted the second goal of the game for the Devils.

North Delta was one-for-five on the powerplay, while the Wolf Pack went two-for-six.

The Devils are back in North Vancouver tomorrow (Wednesday) for another game with the Wolf Pack, before their next home game Saturday at 7:15 p.m. against the Ridge Meadows Flames at the Sungod Arena.
