Grizzlys lose second straight

Getting lots of shots on net hasn’t been a big problem for the Olds Grizzlys so far this season.

OLDS — Getting lots of shots on net hasn’t been a big problem for the Olds Grizzlys so far this season.

Finding twine with those shots, however, has been a major issue.

The Grizzlys out shot their opponent for a third straight game Wednesday night, but for the second straight game they came out on the wrong side of the scoreboard.

The Grizzlys fell 5-2 to the Calgary Canucks despite outshooting their opponents 55-28 in Alberta Junior Hockey League action.

Through three games the Grizzlys have fired 132 shots but have just seven goals to show for their work.

Tanner Dunkle and Spencer Dorowicz scored the Grizzlys’ goals Wednesday as Adam Weersink took the loss in net stopping just 23 of the shots fired his way.

Michael Matys was the star in the Canucks’ crease stopping 53 of the shots he faced while Sean Wallace, Aidan Crowther, Matt Heseltine, Joel Paiement and Willy Sakal did the damage on the scoreboard for Calgary.

The Grizzlys went 0-for-four on the power play while the Canucks connected on two-of-six man advantages.

The Grizzlys’ (1-2-0-0) next game is Friday when they host the Drumheller Dragons (1-0-0-0) at 7:30 p.m.
