Colton Precourt opened the scoring in the second period for the hosts before Merrick tied the score 17 seconds later.

Kodiaks goalie Mark Menicucci made 39 saves and was the game's third star.

Aldergrove is in action on Saturday, Sept. 24 when they visit the Port Moody Black Panthers. The Kodiaks next home game is Sept. 28 at the Aldergrove Arena against the Ridge Meadows Flames.
