Kodiaks shoot down Pilots 4-2

A last minute empty-netter by Aldergrove Kodiaks' Brandon Dolby ensured a 4-2 win for the hometown team over the visiting Abbotsford Pilots

A last minute empty-netter by Aldergrove Kodiaks’ Brandon Dolby ensured a 4-2 win for the hometown team over the visiting Abbotsford Pilots, Wednesday, Oct. 7.

It was Dolby’s second goal of the night and earned him the game’s first star. Second star went to Kodiak Cameron Davitt for his two-point night, with a goal and an assist.

Kodiak keeper Dawson Rodin turned aside 18 of the Pilots’ 20 shots on goal, while the Kodiaks had 31 shots on the Pilots’ net.

The win puts the Kodiaks firmly in second place in the Harold Brittain conference, with 11 points after nine games (5-3-0-1), sic points behind the Mission City Outlaws and two ahead of the Pilots. Ridge Meadows Flames and Langley Knights trail at five and three points, respectively.

The Pilots opened the scoring in the second period, but the Kodiaks netted two before the end of the prior and kept their lead throughout the rest of the game. Scorers were Erik Bocale on a power play and Dolby, with assists from Elijah Vilio, Davitt, Joshua Pollock and Matt Oliver.

Davitt put the Kodiaks up 3-1 early in the third period, assisted by Spencer Unger, before the Pilots scored their second and final goal at the midway point. Dolby sealed the Kodiaks win with the unassisted empty-netter at 19:09.

The Kodiaks pay a visit to the Ridge Meadows Flames on Friday, Oct. 9 before hosting the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at Aldergrove Arena. Puck drop is at 7:15 p.m.

Next week the Kodiaks travel to the Port Moody Panthers on Saturday, Oct. 17 and then host the Langley Knights on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at Aldergrove Arena. Puck drop is at 7:15 p.m.
