The Aldergrove Kodiaks came out strong and kept it up for a 5-3 win over the Delta Ice Hawks Wednesday, Nov. 11 at Aldergrove Arena.
The evening started on a sombre note, with a Remembrance Day dedication service for the fallen of war, as well as a memorial for the late Aldergrove resident and community volunteer Harry Hunt.
The Kodiaks out-played and out-shot the Hawks in the first period but it was the Hawks who scored twice to put the visitors up 2-0 at the start of the second.
However, the second period was all Kodiaks as they came out on the attack and were rewarded with a 5-3 lead at the start of the third.
It was a hat trick night for Kodiak Derian White as he scored the Kodiaks’ first two goals and got an assist on the third.
Kodiak Eric Callegari was not far behind as he scored the next two goals, with the second being an unassisted power play breakaway goal on the Hawks’ net.
This earned White and Callegari the first and second stars of the night.
Kodiak Brandon Dolby closed the night’s scoring with the final goal.
Kodiaks’ assists came from Erik Bocale, Kyle Bosko, White, Davin Padgham and Matt Oliver.
The Kodiaks almost doubled the Hawks’ shots on goal with a total of 39-20. Naythan Lange served in the Kodiaks’ net that night.
The result puts the Kodiaks at 20 points after 19 games (9-8-0-2).
The Kodiaks’ next game is at home on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 7:15 p.m. against the Ridge Meadows Flames, following by a trek to Richmond the next night to play the Sockeyes.
