Goaltending was the Olds Grizzlys’ key to success during the weekend, as Ethan Jemieff and Jake Tamagi both excelled to help the club post a 2-1 record during an Alberta Junior Hockey League road trip.

The Grizzlys concluded the three-game jaunt into the North Division with a 5-3 win Sunday over the Drayton Valley Thunder. Jake Tamagi stopped 36 shots in the Olds net while teammates Chris Stachiw, Brandon Clowes and Landon Kletke potted first-period goals and Matt Hanger and Bart Moran tallied in the second frame.

Eric Sieben scored twice for the Thunder, who got a single from Jordan Baillie and a 12-save outing from Marc Olivier Daigle. Olds was three-for-eight on the power play, with the host team two-for-11.

Ethan Jemieff turned aside 37 shots in Saturday’s 5-1 loss to the Whitecourt Wolverines. Austin Kernahan notched a late goal for the Grizzlys, after Colten Meaver, Lindon Penner, Jerome Raymond, Clay Spencer and Mathieu Guertin had connected for the home side.

Whitecourt netminder Anthony Terenzio faced only 15 shots.

The Grizzlys opened the trip Friday with a 2-0 win over the Grande Prairie Storm. Matthew Marcinew and Clowes fired second-period goals for the visitors and Jemieff made 34 saves for the shutout.

Storm stopper Nick Kulmanovsky stopped 16 shots.

The Grizzlys are idle until Feb. 6 when they host Grande Prairie.
