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

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.
