Sockeyes sock Kodiaks

Richmond builds early lead, coasts to 7-1 victory over Aldergrove

The Aldergrove Kodiaks lost their first game in regulation this season, coming out on the short end of a 7-1 score against the host Richmond Sockeyes.

The two junior B rivals — they played for the Pacific Junior Hockey League championship last spring — faced off on Sept. 18 at Richmond’s Minoru Arena.

The loss dropped the Kodiaks to 1-1-1-1 on the season while Richmond improved to 3-1-0-0.

The Sockeyes scored four times in the opening 8:19 and never looked back.

Richmond struck for three power-play goals.

The lone Aldergrove score came from Wyatt Versluis, who scored on the man advantage with 11 minutes to play and the score 7-0.

Matthew Bissett had a hat trick for the Sockeyes.

The Kodiaks are back in action when they host the Port Moody Panthers on Sept. 24 at the Aldergrove Arena.

Game time is 7:15 p.m.
