Pilots split games on road trip

Abbotsford wins in Ridge Meadows but falls to Richmond

Another weekend, another split for the Abbotsford Pilots.

The Pilots hit the road for a pair of games, and opened the week with a 3-2 loss to the Richmond Sockeyes.

Abbotsford fell behind in the first period and couldn’t manage to get control of the game. The Sockeyes scored early in the second period to go up 2-0, but Dryden Michaud made it a one-goal game at 6:06. Richmond scored again to once again go up by two after two periods.

Pilots forward Justin Wilde scored in the third period to get Abbotsford within one, but that was as close as the Pilots would get.

Abbotsford continued on the road on Friday, picking up a 2-1 win over the Ridge Meadows Flames.

Cole Methorst and Mateo Toledo both tallied in the first period, and it proved to be enough for the win. Pilots goalie Brandon Kruger stopped 29 of 30 shots in the victory.

The Pilots sit tied for second in the Harold Brittain Conference, with a record of six wins, five losses and one overtime loss.

The Pilots return home on Friday to battle the first place Mission City Outlaws. Face-off is set for 7:30 p.m. at the MSA Arena.
