Kodiaks knock off Pilots 4-1

The win, the Kodiaks' fifth in a row, puts the Kodiaks firmly in the race for top spot in the Harold Brittain conference

Eric Wieking now wears the number 16 for the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks carved out a big 4-1 win over the Abbotsford Pilots on Dec. 5 at MSA Arena.

The win, the Kodiaks’ fifth in a row, puts the Kodiaks firmly in the race for top spot in the Harold Brittain conference, with 28 points after 25 games (11-8-2-4). The Kodiaks are second only to the Langley Knights, who have 30 points after 26 games, and ahead of the Pilots who have 28 points after 26 games.

The Pilots outshot the Kodiaks 27-25 that night, but Kodiaks keeper Ben Giesbrecht successfully turned away all but one shot by Pilots’ Tyler Fraser midway through the second period.

Aldergrove was up 1-0 at the start of the second period, with scoring by Cameron Davitt, assisted by captain Aaron Markin.

Markin scored in the second period on a power play, assisted by Brandon Dolby and new signing Eric Wieking.

The Kodiaks scored two more in the third for the 4-1 victory. Kodiaks Quinncy Leroux scored first, assisted by Joshua Poitras and Markin, and Spencer McHaffie finished with an empty-netter in the dying minute, assisted by Wieking.

Markin’s three-point night gave him the game’s first star, while Wieking’s two points gave him the second star.

Wieking, 19, played the previous two seasons for the Pilots and has already proven his worth as a defender for the Kodiaks.

The Kodiaks host the Knights on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 7:15 p.m.
