DIDSBURY - The Mountainview Colts are in Rocky Mountain House against the Rams on Friday and back home on Saturday against the Airdrie Techmation Thunder.

The team came away with one of three possible points last weekend as they faced off against the league’s top team at the Didsbury Memorial Complex on Nov 24.

The 17-1 Carstar Okotoks Bisons proved too much of the 7-8-4 Colts, coming away with a 7-0 score. 

The Bisons scored four goals in the first, with the Colts managing to hold Okotoks to only three more in the final two periods. The game saw more than two dozen penalties assessed.

Colts netminder Jordan McGinnis stopped 22 of 27 shots, with Kyle Allan coming in the second and stopping 15 of 17 for the rest of the match.

The Colts travelled to Red Deer for a game against the Vipers on Nov. 25.

In a much closer game than the Friday matchup, the Colts got goals from Paton Rothenbusch (assists Haiden Parks and Emmett Barnett) and Aiden Saunders (assists Rothenbusch and Wyatt Bailey), with Red Deer scoring in overtime for the 3-2 win.

“The Bisons are a really good team with lots of depth,” said Colts head coach Dan Viser. “We lacked to compete in the game. Saturday’s game was the same against a weaker team we should have gotten two points from.”
