Aldergrove Kodiaks' McHaffie twins

Aldergrove Kodiaks snuff Flames 9-2

Aldergrove Kodiaks continue their torrid scoring pace, popping in another nine goals Feb. 6 — they have 30 in their past four games

The Aldergrove Kodiaks continue their torrid scoring pace, popping in another nine goals — they have 30 in their past four games — in a 9-2 pounding of the visiting Ridge Meadows Flames.

The win was the junior B hockey club’s fourth straight victory and pulls them to within three points of top spot in the PIJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference.

However, the Kodiaks just have three games remaining in the regular season, while the team they are chasing, the Abbotsford Pilots have five games to go.

Against the Flames on Feb. 6 at Aldergrove Arena, the Kodiaks scored four goals in a 8:03 span of the first-period to put the game out of reach.

MacLean Hewitt and Kenny Prato — both on the power play —  Stefan Gonzales and Ryan Simpson had the tallies.

Hewitt, again on the man advantage, and Stephen Ryan made it 6-0 after 40 minutes.

Hewitt would complete the hat track early in the third before Ridge Meadows’ Sean Pesut ruined Mark Menicucci’s shutout bid.

Spencer McHaffie and Tyson Solotki rounded out the scoring for the Kodiaks, with the Flames’ Travis Oddy scoring in between their tallies.

The Kodiaks face a stiff test on Feb. 9 when they play the league-leading Richmond Sockeyes at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

They then have their regular season home finale versus the Pilots on Feb. 13 and close the regular season on Feb. 16 on the road against the Port Moody Panthers.

In addition to playing the Kodiaks, the Pilots have games against Mission City, RIchmond, Grandview and Port Moody.
