Kodiaks rout Pilots in series opener

After a scoreless opening 20 minutes, the Aldergrove Kodiaks offence got on track, scoring four times in the middle period on their way to a 7-2 rout of the Abbotsford Pilots.

The teams were playing in game one of their best-of-seven conference finals with a berth in the Pacific Junior Hockey League championship series at stake.

The game was played at Aldergrove Arena on March 4.

The score was 2-1 Aldergrove midway through the game when the Kodiaks power play took over, scoring twice in the second period and then twice more in the third.

Robert Jang (one goal, two assists) Spencer McHaffie (two goals), Stephen Ryan (one goal, one assist), Adam Callegari (one goal, one assist), Jonathan Philley (one goal, one assist) and Joshua Cronin (two assists) led the way with multi-point games. Spencer Unger had the other Kodiaks goal and Jordan Liem stopped 21 of 23 shots he faced.
