The Abbotsford Pilots continue to clip along atop the Pacific Junior Hockey League's Harold Brittain Conference standings after splitting a pair of weekend games.

The Pilots blasted the North Vancouver Wolf Pack 5-2 at MSA Arena on Friday, out-shooting the guests by a 40-19 margin. Goals by Devon Allenby, Joel Atkinson and Justin Klimek staked Abbotsford to a 3-0 lead in the first period, and Brady Lawlor and Adam Rossi would round out the scoring as the hosts cruised to victory. Goalie Aaron Oakley made 17 saves in the win.

On Sunday, the Pilots fell 3-2 to the Grandview Steelers at Burnaby Winter Club. Abby rallied from an early 2-0 deficit on goals by Rossi and Allenby, but Grandview's Nicholas Hermary notched the game-winner, his second of the night, at 14:39 of the third period.

The Pilots (12-6-2, 26 points) boast a seven-point edge in the Brittain Conference standings over the second-place Aldergrove Kodiaks.

• The local junior B club is back in action on Thursday, as they visit the Mission City Outlaws (7:15 p.m., Mission Leisure Centre). The Pilots host the Ridge Meadows Flames on Friday (7:30 p.m., MSA Arena).
