After fanning the Flames in both ends of a home-and-home series, the Aldergrove Kodiaks continued their winning ways with a 5-2 victory over the North Delta Devils.

The Kodiaks scored four times in the second period as they won their third straight game on Saturday (Dec. 8) at the Sungod Arena in junior B PIJHL action.

Aldergrove had earlier defeated Ridge Meadows by identical 4-1 scores to start their winning streak.

Against the Devils, Ryan Veillet, Spencer McHaffie and Adam Callegari scored in a 99-second span early in the second, turning a 1-0 lead into a 4-0 advantage.

Kenny Prato had opened the scoring in the first period.

And after North Delta got on the board, Callegari potted his second of the night just 47 seconds later. Callegari also had an assist to finish with a three-point night, as did Prato (one goal, two assists).

Cole MacInnes stopped 25 shots for the victory.

Against Ridge Meadows, the score was tied at a goal apiece after 40 minutes, but Callegari and Veillet scored short-handed goals less than five minutes apart to put Aldergrove ahead for good.

Stephen Ryan and Jackson Wanick had the other Kodiak goals.

The first meeting between the two clubs saw Roshen Jaswal, Tyson Solotki, Daniel Higgs and Scott McHaffie score.

Mark Meniccuci was in goal for both games, stopping a combined 48 shots.

Meniccuci continues his solid season as he is tied for third in goals against average (2.22) and is second in save percentage (0.932).

The Kodiaks look to stretch their win streak to four games tomorrow (Dec. 12) when the Richmond Sockeyes pay a visit to the Aldergrove Arena. Game time is 7:15 p.m.
