Aldergrove Kodiaks take big win over Wolf Pack: ACTION PHOTOS

Surging Aldergrove junior hockey team defeats league leaders 3-2

The Aldergrove Kodiaks played one of their best games this season Wednesday night with a 3-2 win over the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s leading team, the North Vancouver Wolf Pack.

The Wolf Pack outshot the Kodiaks 46-31 but the Kodiaks’ keeper, defense and offense were a seamless team and outplayed the visitors at Aldergrove Credit Union Community Centre.

The Kodiaks were up 2-0 at the end of the first period, outshooting the Wolf Pack 10-9 and netting a pair of goals on the power play and one short-handed.

Kodiak Dayton Spink scored the power play goal at 14:31, assisted by Haydn Dowling and Hayden Vetterl, and Kodiaks’ captain Davin Padgham got a breakaway on the Wolf Pack’s only power play that night, and drove the puck past Wolf Pack keeper Niklas Hoem to score in the period’s dying minute.

The Wolf Pack notched their first goal early in the second period but Kodiak Lucas Thompson responded at 18:48, assisted by Clayton Schroeder and Hayden Vetterl. This brought the score to 3-1 for the Kodiaks at the start of the third period.

The third period saw end-to-end action with the Kodiaks denying the Wolf Pack’s shots on goal until the final minute when they pulled their keeper and finally scored for the game’s end total of 3-2 for the Kodiaks.

Kodiak Vetterl was the game’s first star for his two point night and Kodiak keeper Chad Cromar was third star for denying the Wolf Pack 44 of their 46 shots on his net.

The result improves the Kodiaks to 30 points after 29 games.

The Koiaks travel to MSA Arena this Friday to play the Abbotsford Pilots, and return to Aldergrove Credit Union Community Centre Wednesday, Dec. 12 to host the Pilots, puck drop at 7:15 p.m.

Remaining Kodiaks games before Christmas break are away at Surrey Knights, Dec. 13; away at Delta Ice Hawks, Dec. 18; and at home against the visiting Langley Trappers, Dec. 19.
