VIDEO: Langley Rivermen bounce back from frustrating road trip

Junior A Hockey club records back-to-back wins at home

Langley Rivermen recovered from a rough road trip with two at-home wins on Friday and Saturday at the George Preston arena.

On Friday, the Rivermen won a rematch against the Victoria Grizzlies, with a 5-2 victory over the team that currently sit in first place in the Island Division.

Trevor Ayre was a standout in the Friday game, with two goals in the second period.

On Saturday, the Rivermen defeated the last-place Cowichan Valley Capitals also make their only visit of the year to the Lodge, with a 3-2 score.

It was a satisfying recovery for the Rivermen after a rough road trip that saw them lose three in a row the previous weekend.

“It was a good bounce back,” said Rivermen head coach Bobby Henderson.
