Kodiaks fall to Steelers 6-4

However, a third period rally by the Steelers saw them net four in a row before the Kodiaks closed scoring with a short-handed, unassisted goal from Brandon Dolby, to end the game 6-4 for the visitors.

Dolby, who earned the game’s third star, opened the scoring that night with the first period’s only goal, assisted by Erik Bocale.

The Steelers evened it up in the second before Aldergrove scored two more. Scoring for the Kodiaks were Eric Callegari (on a power play) and Dryden Wust, with assists from Cameron Davitt, Wyatt Versluis and Joshua Pollock.

The Steelers outshot the Kodiaks 38-27 and scored twice on eight power plays.

Kodiaks maul Ice Hawks 5-2

The Aldergrove Kodiaks are starting to hit their stride, with a convincing 5-2 win over Delta Ice Hawks Tuesday (Sept. 22) at Ladner Leisure Centre.

Kodiak Brandon Dolby notched two goals within the first five minutes of the game, to earn the game’s first star. Dolby’s assists came from Kyle Bosko, Matt Oliver (2), and  Quinncy Leroux. The Hawks scored two minutes later but Kodiak Leroux scored on a power play at 19:12, assisted by Olvier and Elvis Jansons, to put the Kodiaks up 3-1.

The Hawks scored their last goal of the night midway through the second period, before Cameron Davitt scored, unassisted, to put the Kodiaks up 4-2.

At 42 seconds into the third Kodiak Spencer Unger scored the last goal of the night, assisted by Davitt and Eric Callegari, to end the game at 5-2 for the Kodiaks.

The Kodiaks outshot the Hawks 44-22 and scored on one of eight power plays, while stopping Delta on all four of their power plays.

The Kodiaks stand at five points after five games, with a pair of wins and an overtime loss. Mission leads at seven points in the Harold Brittain conference, followed by Abbotsford at six. Langley and Ridge Meadows trail at three and two points, respectively.
