The Aldergrove Kodiaks are back in the game after defeating Richmond Sockeyes 3-2 in game three of the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s championship series.

The game, Sunday, March 23 at Richmond Arena, was Aldergrove’s first win of the series, after falling 7-1 and 6-4 in the first two games of the best-of-seven series.

With the two teams evenly matched up on their first lines it was the night for Aldergrove’s second and third lines to shine.

Scoring for the Kodiaks were Spencer Unger and Spencer McHaffie with two unanswered goals in the first period, and another goal by McHaffie in the second. Assists were by Adam Callegari, Kodi Schwarz, Scott McHaffie (2) and Jeremy Lagler.

Sockeyes’ Daniel Oakley scored in the second and Jacob Wozney scored in the final frame on a power play.

The Kodiaks outshot the Sockeyes 38-35, but were unable to score on the three power plays while the Sockeyes scored on one of two.

Twins Spencer and Scott McHaffie were the first and second stars of the night, respectively, while the Sockeye’s Wozney earned third star.

The two teams are back in Aldergrove Arena Wednesday night for game four, and Richmond the next night for game five. Games six and seven (if needed) will be at Aldergrove Arena on Saturday and Richmond on Monday.
