Aldergrove Kodiaks alumni Stephen Ryan (#13) returned to the team this past week and helped the Kodiaks to a 4-3 victory over the Ridge Meadows Flames

Kodiaks douse Flames 4-3

The Ridge Meadows Flames could not overcome their hosts and came out in the bottom end of the 4-3 score to the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

The Ridge Meadows Flames outshot the Aldergrove Kodiaks at Aldergrove Arena Nov. 12 but could not overcome their hosts and came out in the bottom end of the 4-3 score to the Kodiaks.

Kodiaks captain Aaron Markin enjoyed a three-point game, with the game’s opening goal as well as two assists, to earn the first star of the night.

Stephen Ryan, in his first game since his return from Merritt, scored the team’s second goal in the first period.

With the game tied at 2-2 at the start of the second period, Kodiaks Wyatt Versluis and Matt Oliver scored one each to put the team up 4-2 going into the third period.

The pressure was intense throughout the third but the Flames were only able to score once in the period to end the game a 4-3 win for the Kodiaks.

The result leaves the Kodiaks third in the Harold Brittain conference, with 18 points after 19 games (6-7-2-4). Langley Knights lead the division with 26 points, followed by Abbotsford Pilots with 19, while the Flames follow at 16 points and the Mission Outlaws stand at 12.

Neither the Kodiaks nor the Flames were able to score on any of the four power plays apiece. The Flames had 40 shots on goal to the Kodiaks’ 27.

Kodiaks’ assists were from Markin (2), Elvis Jansons, Jamieson Ree, Eric Callegari, Cameron Davitt, and Nolan Wallinger. Kodiaks’ keeper Ben Giesbrecht stopped 37 of the 40 shots. Davitt and Evan Cusmano were the second and third stars, respectively.

The Kodiaks host the Mission Outlaws Wednesday, Nov. 19, 7:15 p.m., followed by the Abbotsford Pilots on Nov. 26, at Aldergrove Arena.

The Kodiaks’ next away game is on Nov. 28 at the Ridge Meadows Flames.
