With a 5-2 win over the North Vancouver Wolf Pack, the North Delta Devils created a three-way tie for third place in the Tom Shaw Conference of the Pacific International Junior Hockey League.

The win Saturday night in the Sungod Arena left North Delta with a 4-3-0 (won-lost-tied) record, their eight points leaving them deadlocked with the Wolf Pack and Grandview Steelers.

North Delta was outshot 37-39 by the Wolf Pack, but got a 35-save effort from new netminder Steve Myland for the win. North Vancouver had an 11-6 edge in the opening period, but trailed 2-0. Colin Catchpole and Joshua Smith netted the Devils goals.

Matthew Tilton, Tanner Lenting, Adam Nishi and Manuveer Mahil added second period goals to give North Delta a 5-2 lead after 40 minutes.

The Devils are at home for their only game next weekend, hosting the Delta Ice Hawks at 6:45 p.m. in the Sungod Arena.
