SURREY — It was a lost weekend for the Surrey Eagles as the Birds dropped all three games on the schedule to B.C. Hockey League Mainland Division rivals.
The Eagles best showing was their first outing where the visiting Langley Rivermen squeaked out a 4-3 win at South Surrey Arena Friday night.
Leading 1-0 after the first period, Langley pulled away with three goals in a four-minute span of the middle frame to build a 4-1 lead.
Surrey tried to battle back in the third period with goals from Danton Heinen and Brett Mulcahy, but the Birds were unable to complete the comeback.
Nicolas Pierog scored the other Surrey goal.
Things went downhill from there for Surrey as they were outscored 10-2 in their next two games.
On Saturday night the Eagles travelled to Langley for a return date with the Rivermen. Surrey outshot Langley 25-24 in the contest but could only muster one goal in a 5-1 loss.
Langley led 2-0 after one period and 3-0 after two before Michael Roberts finally scored for Surrey. Langley answered with two more goals to close out the win.
The Eagles returned to their nest on Sunday afternoon and cranked up their attack against the visiting Coquitlam Express. Surrey badly outshot the Express by a 43-32 margin but the Eagles were unable to come up with an answer for Coquitlam goalie Gordie Defiel, who backstopped his team to a 5-1 win.
Pierog scored the lone Surrey goal shorthanded at the end of the second period.
The Eagles are back on the ice Friday (Oct. 11) when they host the Powell River Kings at 7 p.m. at South Surrey Arena.
Surrey then closes out the week's schedule by taking another crack at the Rivermen in Langley Saturday.
