High five for Callegari
It was the Adam Callegari show on Thursday night.
Callegari scored five times as the Aldergrove Kodiaks routed the Mission City Outlaws 7-2 in junior B Pacific Junior Hockey League action.
Callegari teamed with Spencer Unger (one goal, four assists) and Stephen Ryan (three assists) to lead the one-sided victory on Jan. 30 at the Mission Leisure Centre.
Ryan (38 goals, 42 points) and Callegari (24 goals, 64 points) also now sit one-two in league scoring.
After no goals in the first 16 minutes of the game, Callegari scored twice and Elvis Jansons had the other in a two-minute span.
Callegari scored twice more in the second period, with the Outlaws' David McGowan and Bryce Pisiak responding for the home time.
Unger and Callegari had the only goals of the third period.
The win improved the Kodiaks to 30-6-2-2 and 64 points with four games to play in the regular season. Aldergrove is virtually locked into top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference — second-place Abbotsford is 14 points back with seven games to play — and holds a three-point lead over the Richmond Sockeyes.
The Kodiaks beat Richmond 5-4 on Jan. 29.
The Sockeyes (28-5-2-3) have 61 points but hold two games in hand.
Aldergrove is next in action on Feb. 5 when they host the Ridge Meadows Flames at the Aldergrove Arena.
