Aldergrove Kodiak Darien White scored on Mission City Outlaws netminder Gunnar Neilsen

Overtime heartbreaker for Kodiaks

The Kodiaks were up 2-0 halfway through the second period and had outshot the Outlaws consistently all night

The Aldergrove Kodiaks took a heartbreaking double-overtime loss to the Mission City Outlaws on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at Aldergrove Arena.

The Kodiaks were up 2-0 halfway through the second period and had outshot the Outlaws consistently all night (44-30 in total) but had to settle for a single point that night for the overtime loss.

Aldergrove stands at 16 points after 15 games (7-6-0-2), third in the Harold Brittain conference. Mission remains on top with 27 points after 17 games, while Abbotsford Pilots follow with 17 after 14 games.

Kodiak Brandon Dolby opened the night’s scoring with the only power play goal in 10 chances (Mission failed to score on any of nine power plays). Dolby’s goal came at 8:02 in the second period, with assists from Erik Bocale and Elijah Vilio.

Towering new Kodiak forward Derian White added another to their tally a few seconds later for the 2-0 lead, assisted by Ivan Vilcauskas and Joshua Pollock.

Mission’s Mitchell Biermann closed the period’s scoring at 15:58, to bring the Kodiak lead down to 2-1.

Mission’s Brody Dyck caught Kodiak net minder Naythan Lange behind the net at 3:42 in the third to take the game into overtime.

Both teams enjoyed a power play in the first overtime’s four-on-four and Aldergrove peppered the Outlaws’ net with nine shots in the two overtimes, however, Mission’s Baylee Wright finally got the lucky shot in their second try, at 1:55 in the three-on-three, for the win.

Kodiak Bocale was named the game’s third star.
