Rare losing streak for Kodiaks

Aldergrove drops back-to-back games for first time this season

For the first time this season — which began back in September — the Aldergrove Kodiaks have lost back-to-back contests.

The junior B hockey club did manage a single point in their most recent setback, a 3-2 overtime loss to the visiting Port Moody Panthers on Jan. 22 at the Aldergrove Arena.

Cole Wirsch-Methorst scored the winner at 4:37 of the extra period, shortly after the Kodiaks had killed off a power play.

The loss, coupled with a 5-1 setback the game before to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack, leaves Aldergrove with a record of 28-6-2-2 and 60 points, which is still good for top spot in both the PJHL and the Harold Brittain Conference with six games to play in the regular season.

Aldergrove’s next game is at home versus the Richmond Sockeyes on Jan. 29.

The Sockeyes are one point back of the Kodiaks for the league-lead but Richmond does have two games in hand.

Adam Callegari and Stephen Ryan had the Kodiaks goals in the defeat. Tate Sproxton made 28 saves in the defeat.

The Panthers countered with goals from Wolfgang Schoenefuhs and James Jerczynski. Liam Smith finished with 29 saves.
