Win, loss starts PJHL season for the Devils

North Delta Junior B hockey team beats Mission, loses to Delta

After a win on the road to start their Pacific Junior Hockey League season, the North Delta Devils quickly dropped to .500 following a 7-1 loss to the Delta Ice Hawks Saturday night in the Sungod Arena.

The Devils win came Thursday, a 5-2 decision over the Misson City Outlaws in a game won by North Delta’s special teams. The Devils never trailed in the contest, taking a lead in the first period on a powerplay goal by Joshua Trisevic the going ahead again in the second on a shorthanded effort from Josh Smith.

Trisevic scored the eventual game-winning goal with 54 seconds left in the second period. Then a pair of powerplay goals 25 seconds apart in the final three minutes of play put the game out of reach. Colin Catchpole and Jackson Surbey were the final two North Delta goalscorers.

Catchpole also had a pair of assists to finish as the game’s top point-getter, while netminder Dawson Aulenback turned aside 31 of 33 saves for the win. Mission outshot the Devils 33-27.

North Delta was three-for-10 on the powerplay, and perfect on six shorthanded situations.

The Ice Hawks were in control throughout Saturday’s game, outshooting the home team 38-28 and taking a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes and going ahead 3-1 after two periods. They led 3-0 when North Delta netted it’s only goal of the game, Surbey’s second of the year with 82 seconds left in the second period.

The Devils will play a pair of conference rivals this week, visiting the Richmond Sockeyes Thursday night before hosting the Grandview Steelers Saturday at 7:15 pm in the Sungod Arena.
