The bears responded with another goal, stretching their lead to 6-4 against Richmond.

The Sockeyes last goal wasn’t enough for them to cinch the win, with the final score 6-5 for Aldergrove.

Shots totalled at 43-39 for the Kodiaks.

Tyler Cannon was named first star with two goals during the game, and Justin Ralph secured second star with three goal assists.
