Despite a promising start, the result was far from that when it was all said and done, as the Camrose Kodiaks pummelled the Lloydminster Bobcats Sunday afternoon in Canmore.
The Kodiaks scored seven unanswered goals en route to a 7-1 victory over the Cats, handing Lloydminster its second straight loss.
For the first twenty minutes, the Bobcats played a perfect road period, which ultimately resulted in them holding the lead after one period of play.
Outshooting Camrose 12-9, Lloydminster netted the lone goal when Chance Adrian buried his first as a Bobcat with a wrist shot from the slot.
However, after the second period began it was all Kodiaks.
Camrose exploded for five goals in the period to take a commanding 5-1 lead into the break.
The Kodiaks then added on two more times in the third to round out the scoring.
Bobcat’s goalie Cale Elder suffered the loss having surrendered five goals on 30 shots before being lifted for ‘AP’ Eric Cook to start the third. Roddy Ross picked up the win in goal with a 30 save performance. Cook went on to stop 16 of 18 shots in the final frame.
On the man-advantage the Bobcats went 0 for 6, while the Kodiaks finished 1 for 6.
Lloydminster will now return home to the Border City to host the Viterra North Division leading Bonnyville Pontiacs Wednesday night at the Civic Centre.
