Kodiaks on verge of hibernation

Aldergrove junior B hockey team faces tough task in 0-3 hole against league's top team

The Aldergrove Kodiaks are on the brink of elimination.

The junior B hockey club dropped a 4-2 decision to the Richmond Sockeyes on Sunday to fall behind three games to none in the best-of-seven PJHL championship series.

The game was played at Richmond Arena.

The Kodiaks will look to stave off elimination tonight (Tuesday) when they host game four at the Aldergrove Arena.

Richmond, the top team during the regular season, won game one 8-2 and then took game two 5-0.

In Sunday’s contest, the Sockeyes raced out to a 2-0 lead after the first eight minutes, getting goals from Dean Allison and Daniell Lange, the latter coming on the power play.

They then iced the game with goals 27 seconds apart from Trevor Lima and Austin Adamson in the second period.

The Kodiaks made it 4-1 with a goal from Spencer McHaffie late in the second and then cut the lead to two with an Adam Callegari goal 63 seconds into the third. But they would get no closer, falling 4-2.

Cole MacInnes made 28 saves in the defeat as Richmond out-shot Aldergrove 32-25.
