Aldergrove Kodiaks’ forward Thomas Hardy earned the game’s first star and leads the league in scoring with five points after contributing to their overtime 4-3 win over Port Moody Black Panthers, Sept. 24 at Port Moody Arena.

It was a chippy game with plenty of penalties on both sides, which the Panthers took advantage of with two power play goals to none for the Kodiaks.

Kodiaks’ Thanvir Bandhesa opened the game’s scoring early in the first at 4:52, assisted by Scott Smith and Taylor Christopher, and the Panthers responded at 14:12 on the power play.

The Panthers scored two more in the second on a power play as well as a short-handed goal before the Kodiaks fired back at 14:10 on a goal by Hardy from Colton Precourt and Robert Jang.

The third period was scoreless until 14:15 when the Kodiaks evened it up at 3-3 on a goal by Ryan Veillet, assisted by Hardy and Precourt.

This took the game into overtime, and Precourt notched the winner at 22 seconds, assisted by Hardy and Ryan Procyshyn. Precourt now has four points in the season for his two goals and two assists.

The Kodiaks sit at one loss and one win this season. They next play Ridge Meadows Flames at home Sept. 28, 7:15 p.m. and then host Grandview Steelers Oct. 5, 7:15 p.m., before their next road trip to Abbotsford Pilots Oct. 7.
