OLDS — Chis Gerrie scored in overtime as the Olds Grizzlys downed the Camrose Kodiaks 2-1 in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game Tuesday.
Kyle Star gave the Grizzlys a 1-0 lead with a penalty-shot goal at 14:21 of the second period and Connor Mailey replied for the Kodiaks on the power play just over three minutes later.
Ethan Jemieff made 36 saves for the win before 350 fans at the Sportsplex, while Kodiaks netminder Devin McDonald blocked 30 shots.
