Kodiaks stumble in Sockeyes tilt

Kodiak Joshua Pollock scored a pair of goals in the first two periods for a 2-1 lead at the start of the third

The Aldergrove Kodiaks were in fine form for the first two periods against the visiting Richmond Sockeyes on Nov. 4 but the team fell apart in the third for a disastrous 9-3 loss.

Kodiak Joshua Pollock scored a pair of goals in the first two periods for a 2-1 lead at the start of the third, and the Kodiaks outplayed a lacklustre Sockeyes side.

However, in the third the Kodiaks fell apart with poor defence and undisciplined attacks on the visitors at Aldergrove Arena and allowed no less than eight consecutive goals by the Sockeyes before finally closing the game with a power play goal by Kodiak newcomer Nathan Washington for the final score of 9-3 for the Sockeyes.

The Kodiaks had outshot the Sockeyes 24-20 in the first two periods but the Sockeyes unleashed an assault of pucks in the third, outshooting the Kodiaks by a staggering 22-7 in the period.

Pollock’s goals were assisted by Washington and Derian White, and Brandon Dolby and new player Lucas Stratford. Washington’s goal was assisted by Edvins Jansons.

The Kodiaks are aiming for an improvement in their tilt against Abbotsford Pilots this Saturday at MSA Arena.

The Kodiaks’ next home games are Nov. 11 versus Delta Ice Hawks and Nov. 18 versus Ridge Meadows Flames, followed by a trek to play the Sockeyes at their arena on Nov. 19.
