The Aldergrove Kodiaks took a win away at Ridge Meadows Flames Friday night to maintain second place in the Harold Brittain conference.

The 4-1 win followed a 2-1 loss at home against the conference-leading Abbotsford Pilots, Nov. 28.

Kodiaks captain Daniel Higgs scored their only goal on the Pilots that night, on a power play late in the third period. Assists came from Kenny Prato and Adam Callegari.

The Pilots scored twice in the first period. The Pilots outshot the Kodiaks 41-29 that night, earning Kodiaks keeper Mark Manicucci the game's second star for stopping 39 shots.

The Kodiaks were in better form Friday, when they outshot the Flames 29-20 for the 4-1 win.

Kodiaks scorers were Roshen Jaswal in the first period at 15:38 (assists by Daniel Higgs and MacLean Hewitt), Tyson Solotki in the second at 19:20 (assists by Stefan Gonzales and Ryan Veillet), and in the third period a pair by Higgs at 6:57 (assists by Solotki and Stephen Ryan) and at 16:11 on a power play by Scott McHaffie (assists by Gonzales and Spencer McHaffie). Flames' Paul Piluso scored their only goal, short-handed in the third.

Solotki earned game first star that night, with third star to Gonzales.

The Kodiaks stands at 23 points after 23 games (11-11-1-0), behind the Pilots' 36 points and ahead of the Flames' 18 points.
