Knights salvage one point with overtime loss

Langley scores three times in third period to earn one point

The Langley Knights are still in search for their first victory on home ice.

The junior B hockey club fell to 0-2 at the George Preston Recreation Centre after dropping a 5-3 decision to the Grandview Steelers last week (Sept. 17).

The Knights did pick up a point on Saturday night, falling 5-4 in overtime to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack at the Harry Jerome Rec Centre.

Against the Steelers, Langley was up 2-0 after one period and 3-2 in the third period before Grandview scored the game’s final three goals.

The Steelers power play did the bulk of the damage, going three-for-five.

Nicolas Bizzuto, Brandon Galbraith and Dylan McCann had the Knight goals.

Langley battled back against the Wolf Pack to score three third-period goals — two of them with the man advantage — to force overtime and earn the single point.

North Vancouver’s Jackson Tadey struck for the winner 2:55 into the extra period to give the home team the extra point.

Brendan Campbell scored twice for the Knights while Connor Bowey and Cole Williams had the other goals.

Langley (1-2-0-1) has three games in the coming days, including home dates against Mission City tomorrow (Thursday) and Aldergrove (Sept. 28) as well as a road contest versus Ridge Meadows on Friday.
