Knights battle Kodiaks to 5-4 OT win

It was a hard-fought battle between the Aldergrove Kodiaks and Langley Knights but the Knights pulled out a 5-4 overtime victory

It was a hard-fought battle between the Aldergrove Kodiaks and Langley Knights but the Knights pulled out a 5-4 overtime victory in the dying second of their power play for the win, Oct. 8 at Aldergrove Arena.

It was the first time the two local teams had met since the North Delta Devils moved to Langley and took the new name, albeit with many of the Devils’ senior players on their roster.

The result put the Knights at the top of the Harold Brittain conference with 10 points after eight games (5-3-0-0), and the Kodiaks in third place with nine points after 10 games (3-3-1-2).

The Knights were up 2-0 in the first period before Kodiak Dryden Wust scored at 12:51, unassisted. The Knights scored once more that period, on a power play, before Kodiak captain Aaron Markin scored at 19:59 to make it 3-2 for the Knights at the start of the second period.

The Kodiaks scored the only two goals of the second to put the hometown team up 4-3. Kodiaks’ scorers were Quinncy Leroux, unassisted, and Jordan Funk on a power play, from Matt Oliver and Cameron Davitt.

Knight Levi De Wall notched his second goal of the night early in the third to put the game into overtime. De Wall made it a hat trick at 47 seconds into the overtime for their win.

The Kodiaks outshot the Knights 34-25 but the Kodiaks’ four penalty kills in the third and overtime were their downfall.

Kodiak Eric Callegari was game first star, Knight Levi De Wall was second and Kodiak Jordan Funk was third.

The Kodiaks travel to Ridge Meadows to take on the Flames this Friday, Oct. 10 and return to Aldergrove Arena to host North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Wednesday, Oct. 15, puck drop at 7:15 p.m.
