Aldergrove Kodiaks #12 Ryan Veillet moved in tight on Grandview Steelers goalie David Banka to score the hometown team's only goal of the night Oct. 5.

Kodiaks drop one to Steelers

Aldergrove Kodiaks junior B hockey team lose 3-1 to Grandview Steelers Oct. 5 at Aldergrove Arena.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks piled on the pressure and outshot the visiting Grandview Steelers but were only able to find the back of the net once in their fourth junior B hockey game of the season Oct. 5.

The Steelers’ Kyle Golz opened the scoring at 12:02 in the first and once more with Simon Horlick on a power play at 2:13 in the second period before Kodiak Ryan Veillet took the puck all the way to the Steelers’ net and tipped in the unassisted beauty at 5:46.

The Kodiaks then turned on the heat in a relentless assault on the Steelers in the third but despite three power plays and intense play they couldn’t get the puck past Steelers’ keeper David Banka.

The Kodiaks pulled goalie Mark Menicucci in the dying minute for a six-man advantage but the Steelers’ Golz managed to get hold of the puck and knock in an empty-netter one second before the buzzer ended the game.

The Kodiaks outshot the visitors 42-35 that night, but were unable to score on nine power plays while the Steelers scored on one of four.

Golz, Veillet and Banka earned the game’s first, second and third stars, respectively.

This leaves the Kodiaks with a 2-2 record after four games this season. They travel to Abbotsford to face the Pilots this Friday, Oct. 7 and then host the Pilots at Aldergrove on Wednesday, Oct. 12, gametime 7:15 p.m.
