The Bantam Lakers recently played a tight affair against their Southern Alberta rivals, Okotoks.

The first period belonged to Okotoks as they opened the scoring late in the first period with a goal by #9 Jordan Blizzard at 1:13, followed shortly after by another quick goal from Okotoks’ #17, Ryan Hogan. The Lakers would need to regroup going into the second period.

It took more than 10 minutes for the Lakers to find the twine with a goal their first goal landed by Kyeran Nystrom assisted by Bryce Knudson. With the seal broken, the Lakers would manage to tie the affair seeing just under four minutes of play left on the clock, a second goal came from Laker Aidan Sigfussen. The Lakers would go into the third period tied 2-2.

The third and deciding period would start with the Lakers going down 3-2 on a goal from Okotoks’ Loghan Kenyon. With hope looking dim, the Lakers would wait until the final minute of the third period for Jordan Karcha to tie the game 3-3 on his first goal of the game with an assist from Aden Michael.

The Lakers wouldn’t be able to sustain the brief tie as Okotoks would go on to win the game on a goal from #4 Zack Villeneuve with 29 seconds left to play.

Laker goalie Brendan Murphy would finish with 32 saves.

The Lakers head into the Christmas break with their next game coming against Strathmore on January 7 at the Nexsource Centre.
