Kodiaks corral Outlaws, fall to Ice Hawks

The Aldergrove Kodiaks responded to a heartbreaking loss the night before with a 7-5 victory over the Mission City Outlaws.

The junior B hockey club hosted the Outlaws on Jan. 30 at the Aldergrove Arena and scored three third-period goals for the win.

Stefan Gonzales' power-play goal 1:29 into the third period snapped a 4-4 tie before a flurry of goals in the final 5:14.

Scott McHaffie scored to make it a two-goal lead. And after Mission's Matthew Liggett cut the deficit back to one, 26 seconds later, Stephen Ryan got that goal back for the 7-5 final score.

Spencer McHaffie and Scott McHaffie both scored in the first period while Kodi Schwarz scored twice in the second.

For the Outlaws, Scott Mackey scored twice, while Cameron Bertsch and Nolan Dyck had the other goals.

Mark Menicucci stopped 36 shots for the victory.

The game before, with overtime looming, Delta Ice Hawks' Mak Barden scored a short-handed goal with just 14 seconds left on the block to deny the Kodiaks a single point and a shot in overtime.

Barden's winner made it 3-2 at the Ladner Leisure Centre on Jan. 29.

Spencer McHaffie and Kenny Prato had scored for the Kodiaks while Anthony Brito and Aaron Merrick tallied for Delta.

Cole MacInness was tagged with the loss, making 29 saves.

The split leaves Aldergrove with a record of 23-14-1-0 and 47 points, good for second place in the PIJHL's Harold Brittain Conference with just six games remaining in the regular season.
