Coming off a first-round win over Red Deer, the Grizzlys roared into action in the opening period of their first round two game against Girls Hockey Calgary (GHC) Fire White. The Olds team got just reward for their early efforts with a power-play goal after 15 minutes of play. Kallie Clouston, the Olds captain, got in tight, squeezed past her defensive marker and pushed the puck past Ali Kieren’s glove hand.

Fire White responded well though and evened up the scoring with a goal from defender, Gracie Gilkyson with just 17 seconds remaining on the clock.

Island Bernard-Docker put the Grizzlys ahead again halfway through the second period with a scrambled affair in front of the Fire White net. Again, Fire White retaliated, with just seven seconds left when Hannah Suto shoveled the puck backhanded past Meghan Olsen’s blocker.

The final period was into the last two minutes when Suto scored again, a shot from in front of the net that beat the hard working Olsen through traffic.

Final score: Calgary Fire White 3-2 Olds Grizzlys

Up next: You have an even shorter wait for the next match between these two teams as time springs forward by one hour in the wee hours of March 11. The second of the two home and away games in the second round of the Alberta Female Hockey League playoffs starts at 12:30 at East Calgary Twin Arenas (ECTAS).

Song of the match

Some good, edgy female singers were in contention today. Avril Lavigne skated away with the three stars after checking Alanis Morrisette on the ice with Sk8er Boi, released by the Skate Punk Queen of Canada in 2002.
