Kodiaks take two wins, one loss

An overtime power play goal by Aldergrove Kodiaks' Elvis Jansons lifted the team to a 2-1 win over the Richmond Sockeyes Wednesday night

The Aldergrove Kodiaks split a pair of road games on the weekend to lift their standing to 16 points after 18 games (%-7-2-4).

An overtime power play goal by Aldergrove Kodiaks’ Elvis Jansons lifted the team to a 2-1 win over the Richmond Sockeyes, Nov. 5 at Aldergrove Arena.

The Kodiaks gave the Sockeyes a real game and it was a well-deserved win. It was also a badly needed one as the Kodiaks had been struggling with six one-point games and six losses in 16 games this season. The win was their fourth this season.

Kodiaks keeper Ben Giesbrecht only let one of the Sockeyes’ 32 shots in that night, on a power play midway through the second period.

However, two and a half minutes later Kodiaks’ Jordan Funk evened it up, assisted by Eric Callegari and Cameron Davitt.

The Kodiaks blitzed the Sockeyes’ net in the third with 18 shots to their six, but were denied admission by Sockeyes’ keeper Nathan Alalouf, setting the stage for the overtime.

A penalty for goaltender interference by Sockeyes’ Brodie Crawford at 3:06 of the first overtime gave the Kodiaks the extra edge to score eight seconds later. Jansons was assisted by Quinncy Leroux and captain Aaron Markin.

The Kodiaks outshot the Sockeyes 40-32 and first star went to Kodiaks’ Jordan Funk, with second star to Kodiaks’ Evan Cusmano.

The Kodiaks host the Mission City Outlaws on Wednesday, Nov. 19, at Aldergrove Arena. Puck drops at 7:15 p.m.

Aldergrove Kodiaks Luke Renton (#22) and Jacob Cronin (#5) help keeper Ben Giesbrecht protect the goal against an attack by Richmond Sockeyes, Nov. 5 at Aldergrove Arena in a 2-1 overtime win for the Kodiaks.
