Kodiaks Edge Grizzlys 4-3 In A Shootout


2 minute read

By Sheldon Spackman

It was Deja Vu for the Olds Grizzlys and Camrose Kodiaks at the Olds Sportsplex on Friday night. For the second night in a row, the Kodiaks beat the Grizzlys 4-3, this time in a shootout, as opposed to overtime on Thursday night.

It was an even battle in the first period with Camrose out shooting Olds 10-8 and scoring first as well at the 9:45 mark when Bryson Traptow got an unassisted shorthanded goal to put the Kodiaks up 1-0.

Things opened up somewhat in the second period as Camrose scored twice more with goals from Bryson Traptow for his second of the night and Alex Mowbray respectively to take a 3-0 lead. However, Olds responded with two goals of their own from James Orban and Quentin Greenwood to make it 3-2 Kodiaks after forty minutes of play.

Despite getting out shot 9-2 in the third period, Olds managed to tie it up at 3-3 when Jared Power scored with a 1:38 left to send the game to overtime.

Nothing was settled there, so it went to a shootout where Mackenzie Bauer scored for Camrose and Tyr Thompson was unable to score for Olds. Bryson Traptow then scored his third of the night for a hatrick for the Kodiaks while Jared Power couldn’t put it in for the Grizzlys, so Camrose walked away with the 4-3 shootout victory on this night.

Camrose who have now won back to back games, improve to 16-9-2 with 34 points and third place in the AJHL’s Viterra South Division. Olds has now lost back to back games and drops to 9-13-4 with 22 points and are seventh place in the South Division.

The Grizzlys next game is Tuesday, November 29th in Drumheller against the 10-10-4 Dragons who have 24 points and are sixth place in the South Division.

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details

Published on

Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction

Due to construction, access to the G.H. Dawe Community Centre will be limited this summer, with a full closure planned for August.

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.
