Sockeyes sock Kodiaks in battle of division leaders

In a battle of division leaders, it was the Richmond Sockeyes getting the best of the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

The Sockeyes scored a 6-1 decision on Thursday night at Richmond Arena, avenging an earlier defeat at the hands of the Kodiaks the week before. That loss is the only blemish on Richmond's season through the first 18 games of the junior B Pacific International Junior Hockey League season.

The Sockeyes came out flying, outshooting Aldergrove 21-5 in the opening 20 minutes and striking for three goals.

After a scoreless second, Aldergrove's Thomas Hardy got the visitors on the board, but Richmond responded with three more goals for the 6-1 final.

The Sockeyes outshot the Kodiaks 54-24 on the night.

Kevan Kilistoff, a Langley Minor Hockey Association product, was the game's first star, with two goals and an assist for Richmond.

Hardy's goal was his league-leading 17th of the season and also gives him a share of the scoring lead with 36 points in 18 games.

The loss ended Aldergrove's 10-game unbeaten streak (9-0-0-1).

The Kodiaks will look to return to the win column on Wednesday (Nov. 23) when they welcome the Abbotsford Pilots to town.
