The Grandview Steelers hot start cooled dramatically this week.
The junior B Steelers shared a temporary spot atop the Pacific Junior Hockey League last week before dropping a 5-2 decision to the Richmond Sockeyes at home Sunday and a 4-1 loss to the first-place Delta Ice Hawks on Tuesday.
The back-to-back losses left the Burnaby Winter Club-based club in second place in the Tom Shaw conference with a 6-3-1-2 record.
Quinn Lenihan scored a goal in each of the two losses. Mitchell Steinke also tallied for Grandview against Richmond.
Earlier, the Steelers won their sixth game of the season, beating Mission City 6-3 on Oct. 10.
Christopher Seto was the game’s first star with three assists.
Brother Cameron Seto led the Steelers with a pair of markers.
Also on Oct. 10, 18-year-old forward Marco Romano of Burnaby was traded to Grandview from the North Delta Devils for future considerations.
The Steelers are back in action on Sunday, when they meet the Ridge Meadows Flames at the Burnaby Winter Club. Game time is 4 p.m.
