Mission City Outlaws goalie Jeffrey Veitch deflects an attack by Aldergrove Kodiaks Adam Callegari and Kenny Prato in a 4-4 tie overtime game

Kodiaks, Outlaws tie it up 4-4

Big saves by the Mission City Outlaws' big keeper Jeffrey Veitch kept the Aldergrove Kodiaks to a 4-4 tie, Nov. 6

Big saves by the Mission City Outlaws’ big keeper Jeffrey Veitch kept the Aldergrove Kodiaks to a 4-4 tie and earned Veitch the game’s first star on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at Aldergrove Arena.

The Kodiaks outshot the Outlaws 60-31 but all but four shots were denied either by Veitch or the ringing of the pipes. And after a wild first 40 minutes which saw each team score four times, neither could net the winner in the third period or overtime.

Mission City had raced out to a 2-0 lead with goals from Bryce Pisiak and Cameron Bertsch, but the Kodiaks responded with three straight to close out the first period.

Kenny Prato, Elvis Jansons and Jonathan Philley scored in a 4:28 span.

The second period saw the Outlaws get goals from Eddie Lalonde and Bertsch while Joshua Cronin replied for the Kodiaks.

The goal gave Cronin a three-point night.

Both of Bertsch’s goals came on the power play.

Jordan Liem made 27 saves in his first game for Aldergrove.

With the single point, the Kodiaks (10-4-0-2, 22 points) are three back of the first place Abbotsford Pilots in the Harold Brittain Conference, although the Kodiaks have a game in hand.

The Outlaws (3-8-2-2, 10 points) sit fourth in the division.

Koiaks Stephen Ryan and Kenny Prato remain the league’s scoring leaders, with 27 and 26 points, respectively.

The Kodiaks are back in action on Saturday, Nov. 9 when they visit the North Delta Devils at Sungod Arena. The Kodiaks visit the league leading Delta Ice Hawks Tuesday, Nov. 12 before hosting the Ice Hawks the next night, Wednesday, Nov. 13 at Aldergrove Arena, with puck drop at 7:15 p.m.
