Aldergrove Kodiaks thump Flames 2-1, 9-2

Aldergrove Kodiaks take three of four games over Ridge Meadows Flames in first round of junior hockey playoffs

Aldergrove Kodiaks took both of their away games at Ridge Meadows Flames on the weekend to bring the team within one win of taking the first round of the junior hockey playoffs.

The Kodiaks took a 2-1 win on Friday night at Planet Ice, and followed that with a 9-2 win on Saturday.

Scoring for the Kodiaks on Friday were Ryan Veillet from Scott McHaffie and Spencer McHaffie in the first period, and Kenny Prato from Spencer McHaffie and Ryan Simpson in the second. The Flames notched the final goal of the night in the third.

The Flames outshot the Kodiaks 26-16 but neither were able to score on power plays. Spencer McHaffie earned first star while Prato received third.

The Kodiaks were much more disciplined on Saturday and scored on five of 10 power plays, while the Flames got one of six. Kodiaks also outshot the Flames 27-23.

The Kodiaks dominated the scoreboard in the first with five goals, four of them power plays. Scorers were Spencer McHaffie, Ryan Veillet, Daniel Higgs, MacLean Hewitt and Higgs.

The Flames notched their only pair of goals in the second, with a goal by Kodiak Roahen Jaswal sandwiched between the Flames goals.

The Kodiaks scored three more in the third, with scorers being Veillet, Brandon Dolby and Jackson Waniek.

Veillet was awarded the first star and third star went to Scott McHaffie.

Kodiaks tie series 1-1 with Flames

The Aldergrove Kodiaks ensured themselves of one more crack at home ice. After losing their home-ice advantage of their best-of-seven opening round PJHL playoff series with the Ridge Meadows Flames, following a 4-3 double overtime loss in game one, the Kodiaks doubled up the Flames 4-2 on Feb. 20 in game two at the Aldergrove Arena.

In game two, Scott McHaffie and Adam Callegari scored less than two minutes apart and Kenny Prato put the home side up 3-0 prior to the first intermission.

Travis Oddy cut the lead to 3-1 after 40 minutes, but Ryan Veillet made it 4-1 with a power-play goal early in the third.

Connor Redmond rounded out the scoring.

The Kodiaks continued their shot barrage on Flames goalie Wesley McLeod, who was forced into making 49 saves on 53 shots. This comes after his game one performance, in which he faced 63 shots, stopping 60.

Game five returned to the Aldergrove Arena on Feb. 27 (after Star press deadline) and if needed, game six will be Saturday, March 1 at Planet Ice.

Abbotsford Pilots have already moved on to the next round in the Harold Brittain conference after winning four games against Mission City Outlaws.

In the Tom Shaw conference Delta Ice Hawks have defeated North Vancouver Wolf Pack in four games, and the Richmond Sockeyes stand at three wins over North Delta Devils.
