Pilots edge Kodiaks 4-3
Bradley Parker's third-period power-play goal turned out to be the winner as the Abbotsford Pilots held on for a 4-3 victory over the Aldergrove Kodiaks.
Parker's goal with six minutes remaining made it a 4-2 game and proved to be huge as three minutes later, Scott McHaffie pulled the Kodiaks within a goal.
The two junior B hockey rivals squared off at Aldergrove Arena on Oct. 9 and with the win, the Pilots took a one-point lead over the Kodiaks for top spot in the PJHL's Harold Brittain Conference.
The loss dropped Aldergrove to 6-3-0-0 and was their second defeat in three games after a five-game winning streak.
After a scoreless first period, Adam Callegari put the home side ahead 1-0 with a power play goal. That stood as the game's only goal until late in the second when Kolten Grieve and Jarrett Martin struck for goals 3:42 apart.
The Pilots' Joel Atkinson and Aldergrove's Quinncy Leroux traded goals in the first half of the third period.
Aldergrove lost despite outshooting Abbotsford 50-33 as Pilots goaltender Zachary Station made 47 saves to earn first star honours.
Aldergrove is back in action on Oct. 12 when they visit the North Vancouver Wolf Pack. The Kodiaks next home game is Oct. 16 against the North Delta Devils.
