Kodiak captain Eric Callegari scored their sole goal

Sockeyes stop Kodiaks win streak

"Pipes" between the pipes put the stop to the Aldergrove Kodiaks win streak Wednesday at Aldergrove Arena.

“Pipes” between the pipes put the stop to the Aldergrove Kodiaks win streak Wednesday at Aldergrove Arena.

Richmond Sockeyes keeper Merek Pipes was the game’s first star for his yeoman’s work in stopping all but one of the Kodiaks shots on his goal, for a 2-1 win for the Richmond visitors.

The Kodiaks outshot the Sockeyes in every period for a game total of 36-21 and killed all four of the Sockeyes’ power plays but it was not enough to keep their win streak.

Sockeyes’ Alexander McLeod scored the first period’s only goal for a 1-0 lead that the Kodiaks managed to even up a full 20 minutes later when Kodiaks captain Eric Callegari scored on a power play, assisted by Cameron Davitt and Elijah Vilio.

Hoever, less than two minutes later Richmond’s Brendan Marfleet scored another to put the lead back on Richmond’s side.

The Kodiaks pulled keeper Dawson Rodin for the last 90 seconds of the game and put intense pressure on the Sockeyes for an equalizer to take the game into overtime, but it was not to be.

The win improved the Sockeyes to 19 points after 17 games and left the Kodiaks still on top of the league with 24 points after 16 games. The Kodiaks also still have the most wins (12) and fewest losses (4) in the league.

The Kodiaks have two away games this week, Nov. 4 versus Mission City Outlaws (11 points after 15 games) and Nov. 6 versus Grandview Steelers (24 points after 16 games). The Kodiaks’ next home game is Wednesday, Nov. 9 against the Mission City Outlaws.
