A 5-1 victory over the Richmond Sockeyes Thursday night improved the Aldergrove Kodiaks’ standing to three wins in four games of the new junior B hockey season.

Aldergrove led the game from the first period, outshooting and outscoring Richmond in the first two periods. The Sockeyes rallied in the third period, to outshoot the Kodiaks as well as enjoy two power plays but were unable to score.

The only goal in the first period came from Kodiak Matt Oliver, assisted by Erik Bocale and Eric Callegari. Richmond scored their only goal early in the second period, but Aldergrove responded with four more to put the score at 5-1 at the start of the third. The third period was scoreless.

Second period scorers for Aldergrove were Quinncy Leroux (on a power play), Cameron Davitt (unassisted), Derian White (on a power play) and Leroux.

Assists came from Davitt, Callegari (2), Leroux, Chase Manderville and Ty Pickering.

Kodiaks keeper Dawson Rodin turned away all but one of the Sockeyes’ 30 shots on net, earning him the game’s second star. First and third stars were Leroux and Davitt.

The Kodiaks tallied 46 shots on Richmond’s net and scored on two of their three power plays.

The Kodiaks host Port Moody Panthers, Wednesday, Sept. 21, 7:15 p.m. at Aldergrove Arena. Their next games will be away at North Vancouver Wolf Pack, Saturday, Sept. 24; hosting Mission City Outlaws at home on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 7:15 p.m.; and away at Abbotsford Pilots on Friday, Sept. 30.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks rode to another home victory, with a hard-fought battle over the Ridge Meadows Flames on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

The Kodiaks were leading 3-1 at the start of the second period, but a hard push by the Flames evened up the score, 4-4 in the third period. The Kodiaks’ fifth goal, by Cameron Davitt at 13:38 took the win.

First period scorers were Kodiaks Joshua Pollock, Kurt Klimek and Joshua Poitras (on a power play), with assists from Quinncy Leroux, Matt Oliver, Jacob De Waal, Erik Bocale, Eric Callegari and Ty Pickering.

Leroux scored the team’s only goal of the second period, assisted by Pollock and Oliver, to put the Kodiaks up 4-3 at the start of the third.

The Flames evened it up early in the third, with Kodiaks’ Davitt notching the winning goal.

The game’s first star, Pollock, also played his final game as he is leaving hockey to pursue a career in the RCMP. Second star was Leroux, and third star was Flames’ Tristan Tressel.

The teams were tied at 42 shots own goal each. The Flames failed to score on their sole power play while the Kodiaks scored on one of five.

The result put the Kodiaks tied with the Flames for second in their division with four points each after three games.
