Kodiaks edge Panthers for fifth straight victory
The Aldergrove Kodiaks held off a furious third-period rally by the Port Moody Panthers to post their fifth consecutive victory.
The Kodiaks edged the visiting Panthers 4-3 on Sept. 25 at the Aldergrove Arena.
Aldergrove is now 5-1-0-0, good for top spot in the junior B Pacific Junior Hockey League.
Ryan Simpson and Joshua Pollock put the Kodiaks ahead 2-0 in the first period and Stephen Ryan scored twice in the second period. Sandwiched in between was a goal from Port Moody's Sammy Zeinab.
And the Panthers scored twice more in the third, both off the stick of Daniel Delbianco and they fired another 16 shots on goal, but Cole MacInnes was up to the challenge. The goaltender finished with 38 saves on the night.
With his two goals, Ryan leads the league with eight goals.
Up next for Aldergrove is a home game against the Mission City Outlaws on Oct. 2. Game time is 7:15 p.m. at the Aldergrove Arena.
