Kodiaks return to win column

It didn't take long for the Aldergrove Kodiaks to return to their winning ways.

The Kodiaks, who saw a 10-game win streak come to an end the last time they played, scored a 5-2 win over the Port Moody Panthers on Jan. 16 at the Aldergrove Arena in junior B Pacific Junior Ice Hockey League action.

Stefan Gonzales and Spencer McHaffie both had a goal and an assist to pace the Kodiaks attack, while Tyson Solotki and Ryan Veillet had a goal and an assist apiece.

Adam Callegari had the other Aldergrove goal to open the scoring, while Cole McInnes stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced.

The Kodiaks actually trailed 2-1 midway through the first period, but Gonzales and Veillet struck prior to intermission to give the home side a 3-2 advantage.

And after neither team scored in the second, McHaffie and Solotki scored within the first five minutes of the third to seal the victory.

The score could have been worse if not for the play of Port Moody goaltender Brendan Sharp, who stopped 45 of the 50 shots he faced.

The win improved Aldergrove to 21-12-1-0 on the season. The team next plays Jan. 17 at the Mission City Outlaws.
