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.
