The Abbotsford Pilots search for consistency continues this weekend as they face off against the Mission Outlaws Friday at MSA Arena at 7:30 p.m..

With two wins last weekend, the Pilots moved past Ridge Meadows and into third place in the Harold Brittain Conference. But with a record of 8-9-0-1, the Pilots continue to search for the high standard of play they have set the past several years.

The Pilots beat the Outlaws 5-2 last Saturday in Mission, thanks to four goals in a span of just 3:26 early in the third period.

The day before, the Pilots had downed the Grandview Steelers 5-4 at MSA Arena.

Cole Methorst led the way for the Pilots with a pair of markers, while Devan Vander Wyk and Devon Becker each notched a goal and an assist.

The Outlaws, meanwhile, sit last in the conference with a record of 5-10-1-1 and head into Friday’s game having lost four straight.
