Kodiaks rally to ground Pilots 5-4

Spencer Unger scores the winner with five minutes to play as Aldergrove defeats Abbotsford

A four-goal third period helped the Aldergrove Kodiaks pull off the come-from-behind victory over the Abbotsford Pilots.

The Kodiaks’ Spencer Unger scored a power-play goal with just over five minutes to play to send Aldergrove to the 5-4 victory in junior B hockey action at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena on Friday (Jan. 10).

His game-winning goal came on the heels of a four-goal performance the game before as the Kodiaks routed the Mission City Outlaws 8-1 on Jan. 8 at the Aldergrove Arena.

Aldergrove leads both their division and the entire Pacific Junior Hockey League with a record of 26-5-1-2 and 55 points.

They have an 11-point cushion over the second-place Pilots in the race for top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference and a slim two-point lead over the Richmond Sockeyes for the league lead.

Against the Pilots, Jeremy Lagler scored twice and set up one other goal while Scott McHaffie and Jacob Dunlap had the other scores.

Jordan Liem made 31 saves for the victory.

The team is back in action tomorrow (Wednesday) night when they host the North Vancouver WolfPack at the Aldergrove Arena.
