Be-‘Devilled’ Kodiaks snuff out Flames

The Aldergrove Kodiaks moved solidly into second place in the league and top of their division with a 5-2 win over the Ridge Meadows Flames

The North Delta Devils outplayed the Aldergrove Kodiaks for a 4-1 win Dec. 3 at their home Sungod Arena, but the Kodiaks still remain in first place in their division.

The game started with a promise as Thomas Hardy sank one for the Kodiaks at 1:54 of the first period, assisted by Ryan Procyshyn and Colby Rosner. However, the Devils answered at 7:12 on a power play to even it up at the close of the period.

The Devils got two more in the second, including one short-handed, and another power play goal in the third period to end the game 4-1.

The Kodiaks couldn’t get one on eight power plays that night, while the Devils got two on five. The Devils also outshot the Kodiaks 43-36.

On the upside, Rosner did earn the game’s third star and Hardy retains his first place in the league’s scoring leaders with 44 points.

The Kodiaks top the Harold Brittain conference with 32 points after 23 games (15-6-1-1).

The Aldergrove Kodiaks moved solidly into second place in the league and top of their division with a 5-2 win over the Ridge Meadows Flames Nov. 30 at Aldergrove Arena.

It was their third win since last Wednesday when the Abbotsford Pilots notched a 3-2 overtime win at Aldergrove Arena. The Pilots currently sit at second in the Harold Brittain conference with 27 points (13-6-1-0).

Kodiaks’ Brandon Potomak opened the scoring with the first period’s only goal at 16:08, assisted by Thomas Hardy and Colton Precourt.

The Kodiaks pottted two more in the second (at 4:25 by Stephen Ryan from Jordan Pughe and Daniel Higgs and at 12:31 on a power play by Precourt from Hardy and Potomak) before the Flames took one at 16:28 on a power play.

Precourt got another on a power play at 4:21 in the third, assisted by Potomak and Robert Jang, before the Flames got one short-handed at 16:51.

The game ended in a 5-2 win with Kodiak Scott Mackey netting one at 18:13, assisted by Matthew Luongo and Daniel Higgs.

The Kodiaks outshot the Flames 54-43 and Precourt, Potomak and Jang earned the game’s first, second and third stars, respectively.

The Kodiaks host the North Vancouver Wolf Pack, Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 7:15 p.m. Kodiaks captain Jordan Pughe was missing from the Dec. 3 line, however, as he received a game misconduct for a hit to the head on Nov. 30.
