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

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.
