Kodiaks streak stopped at 21

After an unbelievable run stretching back to October where they earned at least a single point in every game, the Aldergrove Kodiaks finally saw their lengthy streak come to an end with a 2-1 loss to the Richmond Sockeyes.

The defeat happened last week (Jan. 2) at the Richmond Arena and it was the first time since Oct. 12 the Kodiaks failed to register at least a point, a span of 21 games (18-0-1-2).

The junior B hockey teams were tied at one midway through the third period — with Richmond's Trevor Lima and Aldergrove's Kodi Schwarz trading goals — but Liam Lawson potted the winner with just over eight minutes to play.

Jordan Liem made 33 saves in the defeat and this came the night after he made 22 saves on 23 shots in a 3-1 victory over the Ridge Meadows Flames at the Aldergrove Arena.

Stephen Ryan potted a pair — he leads the league with 30 goals and 60 points in 32 games — while Elvis Jansons had the other.

With the split, the Kodiaks continue to lead the Pacific Junior Hockey League with a record of 24-5-1-2 and 51 points.

The team's next game is Jan. 8 when they host the Mission City Outlaws at the Aldergrove Arena.
