The Pacific Junior Hockey League champions, Aldergrove Kodiaks, won their second playoffs game Feb. 15.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks appeared to be headed for defeat as Mission Outlaws keeper Matthew Trulsen turned away shot after shot on his net Wednesday night at Aldergrove Arena.

The Outlaws were up 1-0 in the first period after Outlaw Kyle Lennea scored on a power play.

Then late in the second period Kodiak Jacob De Waal evened it up with a race to the Outlaws’ net that saw the score at 1-1.

The Kodiaks peppered the Outlaws with shots on goal all night but it wasn’t until the second half of the third period that they hit pay-dirt with three goals to take the game 4-1.

Scoring for the Kodiaks in the third were Quinncy Leroux, and a pair from Matt Oliver. Assists came from Eric Callegari, Clayton Schroeder, Kurt Klimek, Kyle Bosko (2) and Arjan Cheema.

The Kodiaks outshot the Outlaws 40-17.

Game stars were Oliver, Bosko and Leroux.

The result puts the Kodiaks ahead 2-0 in the best-of-seven playoff series against the Outlaws. The next two games are at Mission Leisure Centre this Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19. Game five will be at Aldergrove Arena on Feb. 22, if needed.
