For just the third time in 17 playoff games between the two teams, the Kodiaks and Oilers went to overtime in game 1 of the AJHL's South Division QF series in Okotoks on Thursday night. And it wasn't until 8:03 of the second overtime that Tanner Laderoute would score to give the Oilers a 3-2 win in the best-of-five series opener at Pason Centennial Arena. Josh Zablocki opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal at 8:07 of the first period while Laderoute scored on the same powerplay just 44 seconds later to even the score. After Carter Huber tipped in a point shot on another Oilers' powerplay in the second period, it wasn't until the 15:58 mark of the third period that the Kodiaks would tie it up on a goal from TJ Brown. Patrick Gora made 51 saves in a losing effort in his 13th AJHL playoff start.
