Junior B hockey team loses in Ladner

North Delta Devils netminder Steve Myland stole a point for his Pacific International Junior Hockey League team.

Myland, 17, turned aside 44 of 47 shots, including all 27 he faced in the final 40 minutes of regulation time, in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Delta Ice Hawks Tuesday night in Ladner.

The Devils fell behind 2-0 in the first period when Delta tallied twice in a span of 26 seconds.

But despite getting outshot 27-14 over the next two frames, the visitors pulled even with goals from Levi De Waal two minutes into the second period and Michael De Luca midway through the third.

North Delta had an opportunity to win the game when the Ice Hawks were assessed a two many men on the ice penalty in overtime, but it was Delta getting the winner on a shorthanded effort by Spencer Traher.

The single point leaves North Delta will a 4-5-2 (won-lost-tied) record and in fourth place in the Tom Shaw Conference, one point ahead of the North Vancouver Wolf Pack.

The Devils get the best and worst from the Harold Brittain Conference in their next two games. They are in Mission tonight at 7:45 p.m. for a contest with the last-place Mission Icebreakers (1-9-1), before a home game Saturday at 6:45 p.m. in the Sungod Arena with the 9-2-0 Abbotsford Pilots.
