Two wins by the Grandview Steelers put some distance between them and last place in Pacific International Junior Hockey League play last weekend.
The Steelers defeated the Port Moody Panthers and Ridge Meadows Flames by an identical 6-3 score in back-to-back meetings last Saturday and Sunday.
First star Spencer Meyer scored a goal to spark a three-goal third period in the win at home against the Flames. Matteo Belmonte added a goal and an assist, while Karl Schopf had a pair of helpers in the final period. Ryan Panichelli was named a second star in the win.
In Port Moody, rookie Jackson Beavis scored twice in a four-goal middle frame and was named first star in the win.
Belmonte and Panichelli, with a three-point outing, also scored in the pivotal second period.
Second star Jordan Hall and Gordon Campbell-Follows both garnered a pair of assists in the victory.
The win moved Grandview to within a point of third-place North Delta in the Tom Shaw conference.
Grandview will host North Delta at the Burnaby Winter Club on Sunday. Game time is scheduled for 4 p.m.
