Aldergrove Kodiaks took their second win in a row with a 5-2 defeat of the Port Moody Panthers at Aldergrove Arena, Sept. 30.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks took their second win in a row with a 5-2 defeat of the Port Moody Panthers at Aldergrove Arena, Sept. 30.

This win and the 6-1 win over Langley Knights two nights earlier improves the Kodiaks standing to nine points after 8 games (4-3-0-1) and second place in the Harold Brittain conference. Mission City Outlaws lead the Junior B Hockey division with 11 points after seven games, while the Panthers remain mired at the bottom of the Tom Shaw conference with two points after seven games.

The Kodiaks led the game from the start, with Spencer Unger earning three points in the first three goals for the game’s first star.

Unger scored the only goal in the first period on a breakaway, assisted by Davin Padgham and Edvins Jansons.

Kodiaks’ scorers in the second were Erik Bocale, Cameron Davitt on the power play, and Matt Oliver, before the Panthers notched their first goal. Kodiaks’ assists were from Unger (2), Eric Callegari, Elijah Vilio, Wyatt Versluis and Quinncy Leroux.

The Panthers upped the intensity in the third and were rewarded with their second goal at 5:18 by Keito Lee, before the Kodiaks responded with the night’s last goal at 11:39, by Dryden Wust, assisted by Bocale and Joshua Pollock. Pollock was the second star and Lee of the Panthers was third star.

The Kodiaks outshot the Panthers 34-24 and while both teams had six power plays each Aldergrove was the only team to score with the extra man. Kodiaks keeper Naythan Lange stopped all but two of the 24 shots on his net.
