Flames flicker against Kodiaks attack
There was no rookie learning curve for Aldergrove Kodiaks goaltender Tate Spraxton.
Playing his first junior B hockey game, Spraxton stopped all 34 shots he faced in a 6-0 victory over the visiting Ridge Meadows Flames.
The junior B hockey rivals played on Sept. 18 at the Aldergrove Arena.
After a scoreless and tight checking first period, the Kodiaks erupted for five goals in the middle stanza, including four goals in a seven-minute span.
They tacked on a sixth goal in the third period.
The team was led by a pair of goals from Spencer Unger, while Spencer McHaffie, Kenny Prato, Stephen Ryan and Elvis Jansons scored once apiece. Jackson Waniek chipped in with two assists.
The victory improves Aldergrove to 2-1-0-0 in the Pacific Junior Hockey League.
The team has a pair of road games coming up.
Tonight (Sept. 19) they are in Mission to face the Mission City Outlaws. They also visit the Grandview Steelers on Sept. 22.
