Sockeyes surprised in overtime

Devils win in Richmond, lose at home to Aldergrove

Playing against a pair of second place teams, the North Delta Devils earned two of a possible four points.

The Devils upset the Richmond Sockeyes 4-3 in overtime on Nov. 4, before dropping a 7-5 decision to the Aldergrove Kodiaks Saturday in the Sungod Arena.

Levi De Waal scored the winner in Richmond, two minutes into the second overtime period. North Delta took a one-goal lead three times, but each time the Sockeyes pulled even.

Blake Gorrill scored a shorthanded goal nine minutes into the game, but the teams were tied 1-1 after one period. Nyshan Basra scored for North Delta midway though the second for a 2-1 lead that would last just 98 seconds.

Mitch Newsome, called up from the Valley West Hawks major midget team, made it 3-2 for the visitors early in the third period but Richmond replied just 44 seconds later.The Sockeyes outshot North Delta 45-25, and held a 9-3 edge in overtime. Nicholas Clark was a standout in the Devils goal, making 42 saves.

Saturday against the Kodiaks, North Delta fell behind after just 18 seconds of play and trailed the rest of the way. Outshot 52-30, they trailed 4-1 after one period and 6-4 after 40 minutes.

De Waal, Jayden Gill, Lucas Stratford, Jacob Gushue and Mack Wallace were the North Delta goal scorers.

The Devils sit in the basement of the Tom Shaw Confernce with a 5-12-1 (won-lost-tied) record, 10 points out of a playoff position.

The Devils play three times in four days this week. After a game Wednesday night (after The Leader press deadlines) in North Vancouver against the Wolf Pack, they are in Maple Ridge to face the Ridge Meadows Flames tomorrow (Friday) before a home game Saturday at 7:15 p.m. in the Sungod Arena against the Port Moody Panthers.
