The Aldergrove Kodiaks took a badly needed 3-1 win over the Langley Knights Wednesday evening at Aldergrove Arena.

The result leaves the Kodiaks tied with Ridge Meadows Flames for fourth place in the Harold Brittain conference with 24 points, although the Flames have a game in hand.

The first two periods were scoreless, but Kodiak Nathan Washington opened it up early in the third with a pair of goals at the 6:33 mark. Assists came from Elijah Vilio and Joshua Pollock, and Cameron Davitt and Wyatt Versluis.

The Knights’ Blake McCulloch scored a couple minutes later, and Kodiak Eric Callegari made it 3-1 at 16:30 on a power play. Assists came from Spencer Unger and Davin Padgham.

Washington, Pollock and Davitt were the game’s first, second and third stars, respectively. Keeper Cole Forbes stopped all but one of 21 Knights’ shots.

The Kodiaks delivered a bruising 66 shots on Knights’ keeper Jesse Gillis to the Knights’ 21 shots, and the Kodiaks scored on one of seven power plays while the Knights failed on four.

The Kodiaks play Abbotsford Pilots Friday at MSA Arena, hosts Port Moody Panthers Dec. 9 and travel to Mission Dec. 12 to play the Outlaws.
