Junior B team six points out of playoff position

The North Delta Devils lost twice in regulation time last week, and are quickly falling out of the race for a playoff position in the Pacific Junior Hockey League.

The Devils fell 5-3 to the Ridge Meadows Flames Friday night in Maple Ridge, then dropped a 6-3 decision to the Richmond Devils Saturday on home ice in the Sungod Arena.

North Delta has a 4-9-1 (won-lost-tied) record, and is now six points back of the fourth place North Vancouver Wolf Pack in the five-team Tom Shaw Conference.

The Devils had the better powerplay in Friday’s game against the Flame in Maple Ridge, but it wasn’t enough to get the win. Ridge Meadows held a 35-26 shots on goal advantage, and had period leads of 1-0 and 5-0 before the visitors netted three goals in a six-minute span early in the third period.

Josh Smith, Tristan Craighead and Colin Catchpole scored for the Devils, who were two-for-three on the powerplay. They killed off seven of eight shorthanded situations.

It was a similar story Saturday, with the Devils failing to score on their only powerplay chance, while the Sockeyes had one goal on six chances with a man advantage.

Richmond led 3-0 after one period, and 4-2 after 40 minutes. Catchpole, Landen Matechuk and Shane Kumar were the goal scorers for the Devils, who will play Thursday night on the road against the Port Moody Panthers.

They will be at home Saturday at Sungod for a 7:15 p.m. game against the Wolf Pack.
