The Delta Ice Hawks’ five-game win streak came to an end on Tuesday night, as the Langley Trappers shut them out on home ice by a score of 4-0.
Delta outshot Langley by more than double, the shots in the game finishing 33-13 for the home team, but just were not able to find the back of the net.
The Trappers got off to a good start, with Patrick Coopman and Austin Ungurean each scoring a goal to put their team up 2-0 before the first period media time out.
They went up 3-0 in the second period on a short-handed goal awarded to Brock Mierzejewski, as he blocked a clearing attempt by Merik Erickson that bounced just right for the away team.
In the third, Cody Bathgate took a shot from the point that deflected off a Hawk in front of Erickson and into the net, making it a 4-0 deficit for Delta.
At the same time, four Hawks were playing for Team PJHL in the BC Hockey Conference’s Prospects game in Chilliwack against the KIJHL prospects.
Brayden Sinclair, Payton Hu, and Colin Jang each had two points in the PJHL’s 4-3 loss to the KIJHL, and Zach Shaughnessy stopped 13 of 14 shots he faced in the game.
Brayden Sinclair was named the PJHL Player of the Game in the inaugural matchup.
