The Langley Rivermen play their home games at the Langley Events Centre.

Langley Rivermen look to tame Salmon Arm Silverbacks tonight at LEC

On Five Hole For Food Night, Langley's junior A hosts Salmon Arm at the Langley Events Centre.

The Langley Rivermen have a chance to come away from a grueling three-games-in-three-nights stretch feeling good about themselves, if they beat the visiting Salmon Arm Silverbacks tonight (Saturday, Nov. 7) at the Langley Events Centre.

Tonight’s junior A hockey game has a 6 p.m. opening puck drop, and tickets are available at the LEC box office.

The Rivermen have had mixed results leading up to tonight, blitzing the visiting Surrey Eagles 10-4 at the LEC on Thursday before losing 4-2 to the host Chilliwack Chiefs on Friday.

Tonight is Five Hole For Food Night. Fans who bring a non-perishable food item to the game will receive free entry to the game.

Chilliwack Chiefs 4, Rivermen 2

Rookie Kale Kane’s second of the night, scored at the 10:41 mark of the second period, snapped a 2-2 and proved to be the winner as the Chiefs doubled the Rivermen at Prospera Centre.

Kane’s goal was a backbreaker – it came just seven seconds after Langley forward Dominic Franco tied the game at 2-2.

Kohen Olischefski gave the Chiefs insurance when he made it 4-2 with 2:42 to go in regulation.

Justin Fregona scored the lone Langley goal in the opening period as the Chiefs entered the first intermission with a 2-1 lead.

The Rivermen outshot the Chiefs 32-20 but Chiefs goaltender Aidan Pelino was sharp in making 30 saves. He was named second star of the game.

Rivermen 10, Surrey Eagles 4

The Eagles’ miserable season was made all the more miserable Thursday, when the Rivermen hit double figures in scoring.

Zachary Bleuler (two goals, two assists), Matthew Graham (two goals, one assist), Franco (a pair of goals), Logan Mick (one goal, two assists), Justin Szeto (three assists), and Fregona (one goal, one assist) all had multiple point games for the Rivermen.

In fact, all but four Rivermen got on the scoresheet.

Matty Saharchuk and Max Kaufman also scored for the ’Men, who led 4-1 after the first period and 7-3 after 40 minutes of play.

The Eagles, losers of seven straight, occupy the BCHL Mainland Division’s basement with a 4-16 record.

After tonight, the Rivermen play on Remembrance Day, Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m. when they host the Coquitlam Express at the LEC.
