It seems the North Delta Devils have found that level of confidence head coach Grant Armstrong was looking for.

“Consistency comes from confidence,” he said two weeks ago. “Once we get some confidence, we’ll go on a roll.”

The Devils are on a bit of a roll, having knocked off the Pacific International Hockey League’s two conference leaders last week for their fourth win in five games.

North Delta upset the Richmond Sockeyes 6-4 on the road Thursday night, then dropped the Aldergrove Kodiaks 4-1 at home in the Sungod Arena on Saturday.

The win in Richmond was the most impressive of North Delta’s 10 victories this season, as it came against a team which had won 20 of its previous 21 contests while atop the Tom Shaw Conference, and had conceded just 22 goals.

But Stephen Campbell and Jacob Wensley netted two goals each, and Colin Catchpole and Stefan Burzan added singles. Harry Fredemen got the win in the North Delta goal, turning aside 38 of 42 Sockeyes shots. Julius Ho and Adam Nishi contributed with a pair of assists.

The Kodiaks are in first place in the Harold Brittainn Conference, but after scoring less than two minutes into Saturday’s game, were held scoreless the reast of the way.

Burzan’s powerplay goal tied the contest before the first period was over, then Catchpole scored the winner early in the second frame before assisting on insurance goals by Julius Ho while shorthanded and Christian Rodriguez on the powerplay.

Fredeman was again steady in goal, making 35 saves.
