It was another tough weekend for the Olds Grizzlys as they lost both of their Alberta Junior Hockey League contests — 72 in Grande Prairie on Saturday and 4-2 in St. Albert on Sunday — to fall to 5-12-0-3 on the season.

On Sunday, the Grizzlys found themselves down 3-0 to the Steel — Daniel Carr Philip Gervais and Tyler Parks — early in the third period before Landon Kadatz got them on the board at 2:45. But another Parks goal at 14:08 put the game out of reach. Matt Hallick scored with under a minute to go for Olds, but it was too little, too late.

Brandon Hopfe made 22 saves on 26 shots in the loss for Olds while Mark Kotylak stopped 27 shots for the win.

On Saturday, the Grizzlys were dominated through the second and third periods and out shot 40-25 overall by the Storm.

Frank Carbonaro scored in the first period and Chad Berglund scored in the third period for the Grizzlys. Meanwhile Dennis Rix had two goals and two assists for Grande Prairie, Zahn Raubenheimer had a goal and two assists and Tyson Ness, Dan Correale, Tanner Fritz and Darren Kramer all scored once.

Marc Boulanger was rescued from the Olds net at the id way point after allowing four goals on 21 shots for the loss. Hopfe made 16 saves in relief. Chad Carder stopped 23 shots for the win.

Olds hosts Canmore on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
