OLDS — Ethan Jemieff stopped 47 shots and Bart Moran sniped the decisive goal at 14:06 of the third period as the Olds Grizzlys downed the Fort McMurray Oil Barons 4-2 in AJHL action Sunday.

The Grizzlys led 2-1 after one period on goals by Mitch Owsley and Blair Oneschuk and following a scoreless middle frame, Daniel Gayle pulled the visitors even in the third period.

But Moran followed with the eventual winner and Brandon Clowes added an empty-net goal for Olds with 18 seconds remaining before 377 fans at the Sports Complex.

Harrison Hendrix scored the Oil Barons’ first-period goal while Fort McMurray netminder Ethan Wood made 29 saves.

The victory was the second in less than 24 hours for the Grizzlys, who exploded for seven unanswered second-period goals and whipped the visiting Whitecourt Wolverines 8-2 in front of 542 fans Saturday.

Newcomer Matthew Marcinew turned in a hat-trick performance for Olds, while Dylan Hubbs tallied twice and Moran, Chris Stachiw and Jordan Lajimodiere also scored for the winners. Mathieu Guertinn and Evan Warmington had the Whitecourt goals.

Jemieff turned aside 28 shots for the Grizzlys. Tanner Kovacs and Kris Drott combined to make 21 saves at the other end.
