Kodiaks clip Hawks wings

A strong 3-1 win over the Delta Ice Hawks has put the Aldergrove Kodiaks at the top of their division

A strong 3-1 win over the Delta Ice Hawks has put the Aldergrove Kodiaks at the top of their division with 22 points in 15 games.

The Hawks outshot the Kodiaks 42 to 22 on Nov. 8 at Ladner Leisure Centre but couldn’t find the back of the net of the game’s first star, Kodiaks’ keeper Ross Baadsvik, until a power play in the second period.

The Kodiaks opened the scoring in the first at 7:10 on a power play by Matthew Luongo, assisted by Robert Jang.

The Hawks evened it up at 3:46 also on a power play and the game was tied going into the third.

It was Kodiaks’ star forward Thomas Hardy who scored unassisted at 8:26 in the third, and Jordan Pughe followed that with an empty-netter at 19:00 to take the 3-1 victory.

Hardy, who earned the game’s second star, currently leads the league in scoring with 33 points.

The Kodiaks face Richmond Sockeyes tonight at home, 7:15 p.m. puck drop. The Sockeyes currently lead their division with 28 points after 14 games, with no losses so far in the season.
