Bandits stuck in second in south division after 1-2 week
SANDRA M STANWAY
Brooks Bulletin

Following a three game week the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Brooks Bandits hold onto their second place south division position.
At home on Sunday the Bandits were dropped by the Okotoks Oilers 5-1.
The Oilers were well onto their way for the win after twice finding the back of the net on two power plays in the opening stanza.
Bandits Conner Jean managed to answer one of the goals in the second period but about four minutes later the Oilers were back. At the end of the second the Bandits were trailing by one goal.
Like the first period, the final one saw the Oilers grab another two points.
The final score on Sunday was Oilers 5 Bandits 1 which turned into their second consecutive ‘L’.
On Friday night in Camrose the Kodiaks edged the Bandits 3-2.
The loss was due in part to the missing Nathan Plessis and Jakob LaPointe who were out on a suspension and injuries to Tyler Carangelo, Luke Bast, Louis Jamernik, Ryan Mahshie and David D’Agostino.
While the seven watched from the stand Taylor Makar and D’man David Dach made their affiliate league debuts.
Simon Boyko pushed one in the net to tie the game at one in the second period, however that only lasted a short time.
Kodiaks put a pair of goals in the net in the second period to take a 3-1 lead. Arnaud Vachon pocketed one in the third period but it was not enough. The Bandits lost 3-2.
It wasn’t all bad news last week.
Brooks managed to earn one ‘W’ on Tuesday after rebounding from 1-0 deficit in the first period against the Calgary Canucks.
While on visiting ice, the Bandits come together for a 5-2 win.
Matt Cassidy and Simon Boyko scored in the second period helping the team advance to a 2-1 lead at the end of the period.
In the final period Nic Hamre, Carter Wolski and Cale List each scored once to the Canucks lone third period goal.
While the Bandits are second to Okotoks who have four points on Brooks in the south division and three games behind, the Bandits are sitting in fifth place with 31 points.
As of Monday, Fort McMurray Oil Barons were first in the league with 37 points after 22 games, Okotoks was second with 35 points, Whitecourt Wolverines were in third with 35 points after 23 games, followed by the Spruce Grove Saints who after 22 games had accumulated 33 points.
The Bandits will suit up again on Friday and Saturday in a double game weekend in Canmore against the Eagles.
On Nov. 21 the Bandits will return to the Centennial Regional Arena for a series of home games.
Tuesday they will face Okotoks, Friday they will be on the ice with the Calgary Canucks (10-12-1), on Nov. 25 they will face the Calgary Mustangs (11-11-1).
