The Airdrie Techmation Thunder lost both of their weekend games but still managed to pick up one point from their efforts via an overtime loss Friday night.
The Thunder welcomed the Rocky Rams who hold down second place in the Heritage Junior Hockey League's North Division, to the Ron Ebbesen Arena on Friday (October 27). After a scoreless first period, Rocky opened the scoring in the middle frame. In the third period, Joey Haden's fourth of the year would tie it and force overtime. The Rams would need just over a minute of extra time to score a 2 - 1 victory.
Shots on goal favoured Rocky by a 34 - 25 margin. Josh Feddema was between the pipes for the Thunder.
Saturday, the Thunder made their way to the NexSource Centre in Sylvan Lake for a game with the team sitting in first place in the North, the Sylvan Lake Wranglers. Sylvan Lake would score three times in the first, once in the second and add two more, including an empty net goal in the third to come away with a 6 - 4 win over the Thunder.
Damon Pennoyer scored twice for Airdrie in the loss with singles off the sticks of Tanner Chapman and Kyle Gromnisky. Austin White was busy in the Thunder net, facing 46 shots. The Thunder had just 21 attempts on Sylvan Lake goalie Kaden Toussaint.
Airdrie now sits in sixth place in the North with a record of 3-8-1. Their seven points are just one back of both Three Hills and Red Deer. This Friday night (November 3) the Thunder host the Vipers at 8:00 pm at the Ron Ebbesen Arena. Saturday night Airdrie is in High River to take on the Flyers.
