They fought tooth and nail even into extra time but in the end it was the Kodiaks who came out on top in a battle between bears at the Encana Arena in Camrose Thursday night. The Kodiaks edged the visiting Olds Grizzlys 4-3 in overtime.
The first period was a tight battle that saw the Grizzlys get on the board first at the 14:16 mark when Braydon Barker scored for Olds to go up 1-0 after twenty minutes of play.
The second period was a busy one though, with Olds scoring just 31 seconds in when Chase Olsen put one behind the Kodiaks net minder to go up 2-0. Camrose however would score three straight including their first one on the power play to take a 3-2 lead heading into the second intermission.
The Grizzlys turned it up a notch in the third period, out shooting Camrose 10-5 and Jared Power scoring once at the 14:58 mark to tie it up at 3-3 after 60 minutes of play.
Overtime didn’t last long though, as the Kodiaks Alex Mowbray scored on the first shot of the extra frame just 34 seconds in, to end the game with a 4-3 OT victory for Camrose.
The win improves the Kodiaks record to 15-9-2 with 32 points and third place in the AJHL’s Viterra South Division. The Olds Grizzlys now fall to 9-13-3 with 21 points and seventh place in the South Division.
The same two teams will scrap it out again in Olds at the Sportsplex on Friday, November 25th at 7:00pm.

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details
Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction
As announced yesterday, City recreation centres are opening fully to the public as of July 1. With construction underway at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre, only limited services and areas will be available.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Starting July 2, fitness and gym areas will open from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily. In July, summer day camps that normally operate from the Dawe will operate from other facilities.
- The pool will remain closed until September.
- To accommodate interior heating and ventilation construction, the facility will fully close from July 26 to August 31. Some registered preschool and summer camp programming may proceed, but no rental or general admission options will be available.
- On September 1, we anticipate the pool will be open, but some other amenities, like the gym, may not be available. More information will be provided as construction progresses.
- Playing surfaces in the arena will not be available until construction is complete, which is expected to be early 2023.
We are currently offering a discounted monthly Value Pass for $27 for adults ($24.50 for seniors; $21.90 for students; $19.30 for youth; $14.20 for children, and $60.50 for a family. It provides unlimited access to all facilities. As of August the Value Pass will only provide access to the Recreation Centre and Michener Aquatic Centre; however, access to the Dawe will be included in the Value pass until the pool, gym and fitness areas are open.
About the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project
Work is underway now on the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project and some exciting changes are in store. We expect to welcome visitors to the transformed space in early 2023. Here’s just some of what you can expect:
- Two NHL standard playing surfaces
- Expanded fitness areas, including a running track
- Outdoor spray park with washroom facilities
- Improved accessibility
- Additional north entrance + site access from 67 Street
- Additional parking
During construction, there will be some changes and impacts to existing amenities and programs, and we’ll do you best to share this information in advance. Thanks for your patience as we complete this work.
