Kodiaks power play grounds Pilots

Aldergrove scores four times with man advantage in 9-4 rout of Abbotsford

Four goals in the second period helped the Aldergrove Kodiaks to a 9-4 rout of the Abbotsford Pilots.

The junior B hockey clubs faced off at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena on Friday (Sept. 13) as Aldergrove evened their record at 1-1 in the Pacific Junior Hockey League. The Kodiaks had lost their season opener 5-2 to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Sept. 11 at the Aldergrove Arena.

But it was a different story in Abbotsford as the Kodiaks used a deadly power play — it struck for four goals on four opportunities — to ground the Pilots.

Aldergrove led 2-1 after 20 minutes before blowing the game open in the second for a 6-1 advantage. Each team scored three times in the third.

Scott McHaffie paced the attack with two goals and an assist while Stephen Ryan and Elvis Jansons each had one goal and two helpers.

Matthew Vela, CJ Lilies, Kenny Prato, Jackson Wanick and Spencer McHaffie had a goal apiece.

Cole MacInnes stopped 22 of the 26 shots he faced.

The Kodiaks will look to make it two in a row when they host the Ridge Meadows Flames on Sept. 18 at the Aldergrove Arena. Game time is 7:15 p.m.
