Prato’s goal keeps Kodiaks streak intact

Scoreless through the first 43 minutes, Aldergrove captain Kenny Prato netted the game's only goal to stretch win streak to 11 games

In a battle of first versus worst, the Aldergrove Kodiaks needed a third-period short-handed goal from captain Kenny Prato to extend their winning streak to 11 games.

The Kodiaks were playing at the Port Moody Arena against the Port Moody Panthers in junior B PJHL action on Saturday  night.

And neither team could find the back of the net for the first 43 minutes before Prato struck for the game’s only goal in the 1-0 victory.

Goaltender Jordan Liem stopped all 25 shots for the shutout.

The win was the 11th straight victory for Aldergrove and they are also unbeaten in their past 16 games (14-0-2).

The Kodiaks also beat the North Delta Devils — who lead the Tom Shaw Conference with 40 points — 7-2 on Dec. 11.

In that game, the trio of Prato (two goals, one assist), Stephen Ryan (one goal, two assists) and Adam Callegari (one goal, two assists) led the way.

Aldergrove is now 21-4-0-2 with 44 points to lead the Harold Brittain Conference by 10 points over the Abbotsford Pilots.

The two teams face off Dec. 18 at the Aldergrove Arena. Puck drop is 7:15 p.m.
