For the second game in a row, Matt Oliver was the Aldergrove Kodiaks’ sole scorer in their second loss of the week. The Kodiaks fell 6-1 to the Abbotsford Pilots, Sept. 30 at MSA Arena.
The Kodiaks again outshot their opponents, 54 shots to the Pilots’ 34, but Pilots keeper Jacob Crawford stopped 53 of those shots.
And as in the Kodiaks home game against the Mission Outlaws, the Kodiaks failed to score on nine power plays while the Pilots scored on three of six.
Oliver’s goal was the final goal of the night coming at 18:07 of the third period, with assist from Kyle Bosko.
