Ridge Meadows Flames' Marco Ballarin and keeper Wesley McLeod failed to stop Aldergrove Kodiaks #93 Spencer McHaffie from scoring in the Kodiaks 4-1 win Feb. 15 at Aldergrove Arena. Spencer's twin brother Scott (#97) also potted a goal that night.

Aldergrove Kodiaks notch best season yet

Aldergrove Kodiaks recorded their best season yet with 54 points after the Nov. 15 4-1 home victory over Ridge Meadows Flames

The Aldergrove Kodiaks recorded their best season yet with 54 points after the Nov. 15 4-1 home victory over Ridge Meadows Flames — and they still have five regular season games left.

The Kodiaks came out strong from the start and kept their penalties down and it paid off big for the hometown junior B hockey squad, as they scored on three of five power plays.

Kodiak Spencer McHaffie opened the scoreboard at 17:44 of the first on a power play, assisted by Ryan Procyshyn and Spencer’s twin brother Scott McHaffie.

The Kodiaks upped the ante at 5:34 of the second when Brandon Potomak scored, assisted by Colton Precourt and Tayloe Christopher. The Flames got their only goal of the night at 17:08 of the second but Kodiak Scott McHaffie scored on another power play in the final minute of the second, assisted by Robert Jang and Matthew Luongo, to put them up 3-1 going into the third.

Kodiak Daniel Higgs scored the only goal of the third at 12:16, again on a power play, assisted by Procyshyn and Thomas Hardy, to end the game at 4-1.

Spencer McHaffie, Procushyn and Scott McHaffie earned the game’s first, second and third stars, respectively.

The Kodiaks also outshot the Flames 45-35.

The result keeps the Kodiaks at the top of the division, two points ahead of the Abbotsford Pilots and with a game in hand.

The Kodiaks travel to Abbotsford Pilots on Friday and North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Saturday, before their final two home games at Aldergrove Arena. The Wolf Pack plays at Aldergrove on Monday, Feb. 20 in a make-up game and the Kodiaks host Port Moody Black Panthers on Wednesday, Feb. 22. The Kodiaks final game of the regular season is on Feb. 25 away at North Delta Devils.

Aldergrove currently stands at 54 points after 39 games (26-11-1-1) in the Harold Brittain conference, followed by Abbotsford (52), Port Moody (27), Ridge Meadows (19) and Mission (15). Should that lineup continue until the end of the season Aldergrove will face Ridge Meadows in the first round of the playoffs and Abbotsford will play Port Moody.

Over in the Tom Shaw conference Richmond (70), Delta (59) and North Delta (50) lead while North Vancouver (37) and Grandview (36) are battling it out for the fourth playoff spot.
