Pilots soar over Kodiaks

A four-goal first period powered the Abbotsford Pilots past the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

The Pilots doubled up the host Kodiaks 6-3 on Wednesday (Oct. 12) at the Aldergrove Arena, the back-end of a home-and-home series between the junior B hockey rivals.

The Kodiaks won in Abbotsford 3-2.

But the Pilots were soaring in the rematch, peppering the Aldergrove goal with 62 shots.

Ross Baadsvik replaced Marc Menicucci in the Kodiaks goal and stopped 37 of the 39 shots he faced over the final 44:22.

Menucucci made 19 saves.

After Aldergrove's Thomas Hardy opened the scoring, the Pilots responded with four straight goals to close the period.

Kevin Lourens, Bradley Parker, Riley Lamb and Matthew Genovese all found the back of the net in a 10-minute span.

Brandon Potomak cut the lead to 4-2 with a power play goal for the only goal of the second period.

Adam Rossi and Parker scored in the third, before Jordan Pughe got one back for the home side.

The loss dropped Aldergrove to 3-3-0 in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League, while Abbotsford improved to 4-2-0.

The Kodiaks are next in action on Saturday (Oct. 15) for the start of another home-and-home series, this time against the Port Moody Black Panthers.

The rematch is Oct. 19 at the Aldergrove Community Arena.
