On this fridgid evening, both inside and outside of the Okotoks Centennial Arena, Canada's best junior team was shown why the Oilers are a force to be reckened with. Roaring out to a 2-0 lead after 2 powerplay goals, our boys held their own and made Camrose play from behind.
Only a fluke goal by the Kodiaks into an empty net in the second period, vacated by Brad Eisness as he went behind the net to stop the puck, but the puck made it into the wide open net somehow from the right wing boards.
Brad redemped himself in the third when he stopped a penalty shop to keep the game 2-1.
It was a very entertaining game from start to finish. As Camrose pressed to get the equalizer in the third, at the end of the game their frustration showed and a skirmish started in front of the Oilers net. A great set-up for the next match between these 2 teams next Tuesday in Okotoks.
