VIDEO: Rivermen and Chiefs go at it in Langley

Junior A rematch at The Lodge

The last time the Chilliwack Chiefs and the Langley Rivermen met, it did not go well for the Chiefs, with the Riv taking a 5-1 win on an explosive outing from Nic Ponak, Tanner Versluis and Ethan Leyh.

Sunday afternoon’s rematch looked like it might be headed for a different outcome at first.

After a scoreless first period, the Chiefs got the first goal in the second period of play against the Rivermen at the Lodge.

But the Riv quickly responded with three goals during the same period, and the gap never narrowed after that.

Final score: 5-2.
