Kodiaks stretch unbeaten streak to eight games

Aldergrove junior B hockey team sits atop the standings thanks to a 6-0-2 run

An eight-game unbeaten streak — which features six victories — has the Aldergrove Kodiaks back in first place.

The junior B hockey team won for the fourth straight game, doubling up the Port Moody Panthers 4-2 on Nov. 20 at the Aldergrove Arena.

The teams were tied at two after one period, but Adam Callegari got the go-ahead goal in the middle frame on a power play and Kodi Schwartz added an insurance marker in the third.

Quinncy Leroux and Elvis Jansons had the other Kodiak scores while Landen Matechuk and Brendin Login responded for the Panthers.

Stephen Ryan had two assists for Aldergrove and was named the game’s first star.

Jordan Liem made 20 saves for the victory, as he replaced Tate Sproxton after the first period. Sproxton stopped 10 of the 12 shots he faced.

The win improved Aldergrove to 14-4-0-2 and their 30 points have them one ahead of the second-place Abbotsford Pilots in the PJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference.

The two teams square off on Nov. 22 at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena.
