Pilots win streak hits five games

Abbotsford sweeps Port Moody over the weekend to extend streak

The wins keep coming for the Abbotsford Pilots.

Abbotsford extended its winning streak to five games, after two more victories on Friday and Saturday.

The Pilots hosted the Port Moody Panthers on Friday, and jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period to eventually win 5-2.

Cole Methorst scored 24 seconds into the game, with Devon Becker and Sean Olson also tallying in the first frame. Brady Morton added a goal in the second period, and Olson scored again in the third.

Goalie Jacob Crawford stopped 24 of 26 shots to continue his hot streak between the pipes.

Abbotsford then went to Port Moody on Saturday and edged the Panthers 3-2.

Dryden Michaud’s second goal of the game in the third period proved to be the game winner and Mateo Toledo added a shorthanded goal in the second period for the Pilots.

Abbotsford only allowed 17 shots on goal, with Crawford making 15 saves for another win. The Pilots scored one goal on the power play, and allowed a power play goal late in the third.

The pair of wins improves the Pilots to a record of 10 wins, five losses and one overtime loss. Abbotsford sits in second place in the Harold Brittain Conference, and they have only allowed 39 goals in 16 games this season.

The Pilots square off against the Delta Ice Hawks on Tuesday, but results were not available at press time.

The club next hosts a pair of games at home, with the Langley Knights coming to Abbotsford on Friday and the Aldergrove Kodiaks on Saturday.

Both games have a puck drop of 7:30 p.m. For more information on the team, visit abbotsfordpilots.com.
