Kodiak Quinncy Leroux scores hat trick against Grandview Steelers on Sunday

The Aldergrove Kodiaks took their first loss in months on Sunday with a 7-5 victory for the Grandview Steelers at Burnaby Winter Club.

It was not an important game for the Kodiaks, who have already clinched first place in the Pacific Junior Hockey League, with 66 points after 40 games, and 33 wins to seven losses in regular season play. The Steelers are second in the league with 57 points after 40 games.

The Steelers outshot the Kodiaks in the first two periods and it paid off for them as the Steelers were up 2-0 after the first period and 7-1 after the second.

However, backup keeper Caleb Ziemann kept the Steelers scoreless in the third period and the Kodiaks scored four to end the game 7-5 for the Steelers. The Kodiaks outshot the Steelers 15-5 in the third for a game tots of 31-28.

Kodiak Matt Oliver scored the team’s only goal in the second period on a power play, assisted by Arjan Cheema and Quinncy Leroux.

Scoring for the Kodiaks in the third period were Kyle Bosko, and Leroux with a hat trick including a power play goal. Leroux was awarded the game’s third star for his three goals.

Third period assists came from Jacob De Waal, Davin Padgham, Cheema (2), Eric Callegari, and affiliate Lincoln Lane.

The Kodiaks scored on two of five power plays while the Steelers scored on three of six.

The Kodiaks have four remaining season games left, including Wed., Feb. 1, 7:15 p.m. against the Surrey Knights.
