Knights struggles continue with fifth straight loss

Langley junior B hockey club drops 6-1 decision to Aldergrove

The Langley Knights struggles continued with a 6-1 home-ice loss to the Aldergrove Kodiaks on Monday night.

The game was played at the George Preston Recreation Centre with Langley falling to 1-5-0-1 in the Pacific Junior Hockey League.

Jackson Waniek scored the lone Langley goal but it came midway through the third period with his team down 6-0.

The Knights were coming off a 9-3 loss to the Mission City Outlaws on Sept. 24 — a game which was halted early in the third period after an on-ice brawl escalated into Langley coach John Craighead jumping onto the Mission City bench — as well as a 7-1 loss to the Ridge Meadows Flames on Friday night.

Against Aldergrove, Waniek’s goal — the third straight game he has scored — broke the shutout bid of Naythan Lange. The Langley Minor Hockey product stopped 22 shots as the junior B rookie was looking for his first shutout.

Another Langley product on the Kodiaks roster, Quinncy Leroux, led Aldergrove with a pair of goals.

The Knights will look to snap their slump tomorrow (Thursday) night as they host the Abbotsford Pilots at 7:30 p.m.
