Lloydminster comeback sinks Oilers, 3-2 on Sunday

February 13th, 2022 @ 5:54 pm

LLOYDMINSTER, SK (February 13, 2022) – The Okotoks Oilers saw another strong start slip away on Sunday afternoon, as the host Lloydminster Bobcats scored three consecutive goals in the third period to erase a 2-0 Okotoks lead and claim a 3-2 win on Sunday afternoon.

Outshooting the home side 22-18 in the opening two frames, the Oilers saw Riley Bodnarchuk (Okotoks, AB) key the early offence, as his point shot was tipped in by Connor Gourley (Calgary, AB) at the 19:33 mark of the first for the opening goal, and he himself scored on a perfectly placed crossbar-and-down wrister from the point 17 seconds into the second for a 2-0 lead.

But penalty trouble and strong play from the host Bobcats turned the tide in the third period, in which the Oilers were outshot 13-8. Matthew Swanson converted on a double minor power play after a high sticking call against the Oilers, tallying at 6:59 to make it 2-1, before Mack Stewart tied the game onto 31 seconds later.

The Oilers were then called for too many men on the ice with 2:39 left in the game, allowing Ethan Aucoin to score the game-winner at the 18:09 mark to seal the regulation victory for the home side.

Next for Okotoks is a road matchup with the Brooks Bandits on Friday night before the team returns home for a rematch with the Bandits on Saturday night at 7 PM. Tickets are available online at tickets.okotoksoilers.ca.
