Kodiaks claw Panthers in 8-5 win

Kodiaks Eric Callegari and Cameron Davitt had an outstanding and productive night against the Port Moody Panthers on Wednesday

Aldergrove Kodiaks Eric Callegari and Cameron Davitt had an outstanding and productive night against the Port Moody Panthers Wednesday at Aldergrove Arena.

Both men had hat tricks in a 8-5 win, as Callegari scored four goals and Davitt scored three.

The result earned the pair the night’s first and second stars.

The Kodiaks outshot the Panthers 51-29 and scored on three of five power plays while the Panthers scored on only one of eight. Dawson Rodin served in the Kodiaks net that night.

It also put the Kodiaks back on track with 26 goals after 26 games (12-12-0-2) and third place in the Harold Brittain conference.

The Panthers opened the night’s scoring at 1:41 but Kodiak Callegari evened it up five seconds later, assisted by Davin Padgham and Spencer Unger.

The Kodiaks scored two more within the next four minutes with a pair from Davitt, assisted by Nathan Washington and Padgham (on the power play), before the Panthers responded with their second goal.

Callegari notched another in the dying minutes of the period on a power play, assisted by Unger and Davitt, to make it a 4-2 lead going into the second period.

The Panthers scored the first goal of the second period but their play was lacklustre and the Kodiaks scored three more in the period to make it 7-3 at the end of the second. Scorers were Callegari (two goals, with the first on a power play) and Davitt, with assists from Padgham, Unger (2), Davitt and White.

The Panthers improved in the third and Keito Lee scored a pair for their team but it was not enough. Padgham scored the final goal of the night at 13:04, unassisted, for the 8-5 win.

Next up for the Kodiaks is Dec. 12 away at Mission Outlaws before hosting the Grandview Steelers Dec. 16 at Aldergrove Arena and traveling to Langley Knights Dec. 17.
