Sylvan Lake Pirates add another tally to the L column

The Pirated faced the Devon Barons at the Bentley Arena, Nov. 25

The Sylvan Lake Pirates are sitting in seventh place after another loss Sunday afternoon against the Devon Barons.

The Pirates lost at home on Nov. 25 with a score of 5-3.

The Pirates started out strong, keeping up with the Barons through the first two periods.

Halfway through the first period, the scoreboard started to see some action when the Barons successfully made it past Pirates goaltender, Graham King.

With nearly four minutes left in the first period, Jaret Smith connected off a feed from Troy Klaus to put the Pirates on the board.

Minutes later Smith once again scored, this time assisted by Carter Sawicki and Dallas Hand.

After the first period of play the Pirates were behind by one point, 3-2.

Justin Moltzahn tied the game at three-all in the middle frame, with the help of Eric Moltzahn and Dallas Hand.

The Pirates were the only ones to score in the second period, keeping the visiting Barons off the away from the net and off the board.

Unfortunately the Pirates were unable to keep up with the Barons in the final period. The Barons scored twice in the last 20 minutes of play, winning the game 5-3.

The game went by relatively quickly, with few penalties on either side of the ice.

The Pirates only received one penalty through out the entire game. In the third period Eric Moltzahn was given two minutes for cross-checking.

The Pirates are on a bye week this week and will return to the ice on Dec. 8 for a road game against Daysland Northstars.

The Pirates will return to the Bentley Arena on Dec. 9, when they will face off against the Westlock Warriors. The puck drops at 2:30 p.m.


Dustin Vileneuve tries to keep up with a player from the Devon Barons are the seconds tick away in the first period of the game.
