Aldergrove Kodiaks defeat Pilots 3-2 in OT

Aldergrove Kodiaks extended their winning streak with a 3-2 overtime victory over the Abbotsford Pilots Friday night at MSA Arena.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks extended their winning streak with a 3-2 overtime victory over the Abbotsford Pilots Friday night at MSA Arena.

The Pilots came out strong and it was all the Kodiaks could do to keep the puck out of their end in the first period. The Pilots opened the scoring at 2:05 and were up 1-0 at the start of the second period.

The Kodiaks evened it up in the second, with Samuel Ramsay netting one unassisted at 13:44.

The Pilots took another lead at 3:20 in the third but the Kodiaks responded at 11:25, with a goal by Tyler Solotki, assisted by Scott McHaffie and Ryan Veillet.

This put it into overtime and it was at 3:28 in the second OT that Kodiak Stefan Gonzales scored the winner.

The Pilots outshot the Kodiaks 40-22 and Kodiaks keeper Mark Menicucci amply deserved the game’s first star for his work. Gonzales was second star of the night.

Neither of the teams scored on each of their two power plays.

The win improves the Kodiaks record to 19 points after 18 games (9-8-1-0), five points behind the Harold Brittain conference leading Pilots.

The Kodiaks travel to play the Delta Ice Hawks on Tuesday, Nov. 13 and host Grandview Steelers on Nov. 14 and the Mission City Outlaws on Nov. 21.
