Kodiaks win first-place showdown

The Aldergrove Kodiaks needed overtime, but they won a big first-place showdown with the Abbotsford Pilots.

Josiah Friesen scored in the extra period to send the Kodiaks to the 3-2 victory last week (Dec. 14) at the Aldergrove Arena in PIJHL junior B hockey.

Aldergrove also received goals from Colton Precourt and Daniel Higgs while Ross Baadsvik made 44 saves for the victory.

The Kodiaks followed that up with a 5-4 win over the last-place Ridge Meadows Flames on Friday (Dec. 16).

Aldergrove won despite allowing four power play goals, including three in a 1:42 span late in the third which tied the game at four.

But with less than three minutes remaining, the Kodiaks Alex Feighan snapped home the winner, his second goal and third point of the game.

Robert Jang, Brandon Potomak and Ryan Veillet had the other Aldergrove goals.

Brendan Sharp made 26 saves to pick up the win.

The Kodiaks (18-6-1-1) have a four-point lead over the Pilots for top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference.

Aldegrove has two games this week, Wednesday (Dec. 21) when they host the Port Moody Black Panthers and then Friday in Abbotsford against the Pilots.
