The Aldergrove Kodiaks chalked up a 3-2 win over the visiting Abbotsford Pilots in a highly entertaining game on Wednesday night, Nov. 25.

Aldergrove opened the scoring within the first two minutes of the game, with Cameron Davitt putting the puck past Pilots’ keeper Jacob Crawford at 1:28. Assists came from Matt Oliver and Davin Padgham.

Abbotsford scored the next two goals on power plays in the first and second periods, but this would be all the team would muster.

The Kodiaks peppered the Pilots’ net with shots in the third period, outshooting them 15-11, despite having three penalty kills. And when Kodiak Joshua Pollock was tripped on a short-handed breakaway he was given a penalty shot, which he put past Pilot keeper Crawford to bring the score to 2-2.

Crawford was pulled in the final two minutes and Kodiak Davin Padgham put the winning goal past backup keeper Brandon Kruger at 18:34. Assists came from Lucas Stratford and Eric Callegari. Dawson Rudin was in net for the Kodiaks.

The game’s first and second stars went to Padgham and Pollock, respectively.

The Kodiaks outshot the Pilots 33-31 and failed to score on four power plays, while the Pilots scored on two of eight.

The win improves the Kodiaks standing to 22 points after 22 games (10-10-0-2).

Next up for the Kodiaks is a road trip to North Vancouver on Saturday, Nov. 28 to play the league’s points-leading Wolf Pack, and return to host the Langley Knights on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 7:15 p.m.

The Kodiaks then play the Pilots at MSA Arena on Friday, Dec. 4, host the Port Moody Panthers on Wednesday, Dec. 9 and travel to Mission on Dec. 12 to play the Outlaws.
