Unger nets four as Kodiaks return to win column

Four goals from Spencer Unger helped the Aldergrove Kodiaks return to the win column.

The Kodiaks pumped home eight goals in an 8-1 rout of the visiting Mission City Outlaws on Jan. 8 at the Aldergrove Arena.

The junior B hockey club has seen their 21-game point streak — which featured 18  victories and stretched back to October — come to an end the game before, a 2-1 setback to the Richmond Sockeyes.

But against the Outlaws, Aldergrove used a lethal power play, striking four times with the man advantage.

The Kodiaks scored twice late in the first period and added four more in the second.

Mission City broke Tate Sproxton's shutout bid early in the third before Adam Callegari and Unger rounded out the scoring.

Sproxton finished with 32 saves.

The other Aldergrove goals came from Elvis Jansons, Spencer McHaffie and Stephen Ryan. Ryan also had three assists to finish with a four-point night.

With the win, Aldergrove (25-5-1-2, 53 points) stretched their lead to 11 points over the second-place Abbotsford Pilots (19-9-2-2, 42 points) for top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference. The two rivals square off on Jan. 10 at MSA Arena in Abbotsford.

The Kodiaks also hold a four-point lead over the Richmond Sockeyes (22-4-2-3, 49 points) for first place in the PJHL. The Sockeyes do possess two games in hand.
