Outlaws no match for Kodiaks

Kodiaks had lost 5-1 at home to the Abbotsford Pilots on Oct. 3, but turned the tables on the host Mission City Outlaws the next night

The Aldergrove Kodiaks bounced back from defeat with a 5-2 victory.

The Kodiaks had lost 5-1 at home to the Abbotsford Pilots on Oct. 3, but turned the tables on the host Mission City Outlaws the next night at the Mission Leisure Centre.

The split leaves the junior B hockey club with a 4-4-0-0 record in the Pacific Junior Ice Hockey League.

Against the Outlaws, Aldergrove enjoyed a two-to-one shots on goal advantage, firing 49 pucks at the Mission goal.

But despite the huge discrepancy in shots on goal, the score was tied at one after 20 minutes and the Kodiaks had a slim 3-2 lead after two. MacLean Hewitt and Cole Gastel gave the visitors some breathing room with goals five minutes apart in the third.

Scott McHaffie had opened the scoring for the Kodiaks while Stephen Ryan tallied twice in the second.

Cole MacInness made 22 saves for the win.

A couple of Langley players led the way for Mission as both Adam Callegari and Kenny Prato had a goal and an assist in a losing cause.

Against the Pilots the night before at the Aldergrove Arena, Abbotsford blew open a 1-0 game with four goals in the second period, including three on the power play.

Matthew Vela broke the Pilots’ shutout bid in the third period.

The Kodiaks are back in action Wednesday, Oct. 17 when they host the Delta Icehawks at the Aldergrove Arena. Game time is 7:15 p.m.
