The Aldergrove Kodiaks improved their standings Friday evening as they charged to a 7-4 win over the Ridge Meadows Flames.

The Kodiaks dominated the game, and kept a healthy lead over all three periods.

Captain Daniel Higgs notched his first hat trick of the season and bagged the game’s first star, while the Flames’ Christopher Nakamura took the second star for his hat trick. Kodiak Spencer McHaffie earned third star for a pair of goals.

The Kodiaks outshot the Flames 33-17 and scored on four of seven power plays, while the Flames only scored on one of four.

Higgs opened the scoring at 26 seconds into the game (assists by Stephen Ryan and Ryan Procyshyn) and nagged the second goal of the period on a power at 12:13. McHaffie scored another at 16:36 (assists by Stefan Gonzales and Darcy Rai) and Flames’ Nakamura scored the final goal on a power play at 17:42.

Kodiaks scored two more in the second before the Flames could answer with two more. Kodiaks’ scorers were Matthew Lloyd on a power play, from Josiah Friesen, and Scott McHaffie at 7:43 from his twin brother Spencer and Rai.

Kodiaks scored two more in the third on power plays at 28 seconds and 2:14, by Higgs (assisted by Gonzales and Ryan) and Spencer McHaffie unassisted. The Flames closed the scoring at 17:03 for the 7-4 Kodiaks win.

The win puts the Kodiaks two points behind division leader Abbotsford Pilots, with six points after six games for three wins, three losses.

The Kodiaks host the Pilots Oct. 3 at Aldergrove Arena, travel to the Mission City Outlaws on Oct. 4, and host North Delta Devils on Oct. 10.
