Surrey Eagles losing streak at eight games

SURREY — The Surrey Eagles have lost eight straight games after Monday (Nov. 10) night’s 6-1 home loss to the Langley Rivermen.

 

Not only did neither team manage to score on the man advantage, the Eagles conceded two short-handed goals.

 

The Rivermen took a two-goal lead after 14 minutes with goals from Domenic Masellis and William Campion.

 

Surrey responded 90 seconds later with a Joseph Drapluk goal, assisted by his twin brother Brian Drapluk, with John Wesley picking up the second helper.

 

Langley scored three goals in under two minutes in the middle of the second period with Hunter Anderson scoring a pair and Matthew Graham scoring a short-handed goal.

 

Ryan Coulter scored the team’s second short-handed goal in the opening six minutes of the third period.

 

Rivermen goalie Bo Didur saved 31 of the Eagles’ 32 shots to give Langley the win.

 

Surrey lost both games to Coquitlam in an away-home series on Nov. 7 (Friday) and 8 (Saturday).

 

The team sits in last place of the Mainland Division, picking up 9 points from 19 games.

 

The Eagles also have the worst goal difference in the BCHL at -63.

 

Surrey’s next three games are on the road – Prince George (Nov. 14 and 15) and Langley (Nov. 21) – which is bad news for the Eagles because they have yet to win away from home.
