Pilots win streak snapped at seven

Abbotsford loses for first time since Oct. 15, defeat Langley on Friday

Justin Wilde of the Abbotsford Pilots battles for the puck during PJHL action on Friday.

The Abbotsford Pilots seven-game winning streak came to a sudden halt on Saturday.

Abbotsford ran into an Aldergrove Kodiaks team that scored three unanswered goals that led to a 5-1 win.

The Kodiaks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first, and then added another goal early in the second period. Sean Olson of the Pilots scored Abbotsford’s lone goal half-way through the second period, but the Kodiaks added two more goals before the game’s final whistle.

Abbotsford’s power play failed to convert on any of its eight chances.

The last time the Pilots had suffered a defeat was all the way back on Oct. 15.

The weekend wasn’t a lost cause, however, as they posted a 6-2 win over the Langley Knights on Friday.

Abbotsford jumped out to a 6-0 lead after two periods, and then the Knights added two goals in the game’s final frame.

Cole Methorst, Alexander Methorst, Justin Wilde, Hayden Guilderson, Erik Olson and Kenessary Kylyshbeck tallied for the Pilots. Goalie Jacob Crawford stopped 24 of 26 shots in the win.

The Pilots record is now 12 wins, six losses and one overtime loss, and the club is in second place in the Harold Brittain conference.

Abbotsford next hosts the Ridge Meadows Flames on Friday, and then travel to North Vancouver on Saturday to battle the Wolf Pack.
